Expire the Eye Walker

.                                   Expire the Eye Walker

                    Creeping amongst the lash of nights eye = 9
                    He ignores around it, making dry = 9

                         Pulling the lids back with both fists = 8
                         As he skids across our eyes mist   = 8

                           He causes bursts of replay = 7
                           Credible to some, at day = 7

                              Yet fixated are we = 6
                              On the sand we can’t see = 6

                                Annoying to some = 5
                                We’ll pick till it comes = 5

                                  Love at a glance = 4
                                  Sandman’s romance = 4

                                     Most review = 3
                                     His walk through = 3

                                         To find = 2
                                         He’s blind = 2

                                            Grain =1
                                            Brained =1

                                This is a “Mock Bowler” poem

                                           stanza reduces
                                    syllable count beginning
                                with nine and ending with one
                             The form “Mock Bowler”, created
                             by Sandra Hudson, resembles the
                              pins at the end of a bowling lane
                                  Each two-line stanza has the
                                    same syllable count and  
                                     stanzas must rhyme
                                             last words

    Looks as if I get to tap you, Kristy and I didn't see that James Fraser had done a duo already (our bad) so we think you and Sami would write an EXCELLENT duo together. Have fun......Aleera

    Hey, Alexandra, this is an awesome new verse form! Love the syllable structure and the way you made each pair of lines rhyme. Great work! Love, Carolyn
