Written for dVerse. Today’s host, Grace, says: write a Synchronicity poetry verse.
This poetry form is written in the first person revealing accidental yet seemingly synchronized events.
The definition of synchronicity is the state or fact of being synchronous or simultaneous; synchronism. Coincidence of events that seem to be meaningfully related.
As a poetry form, this consists of eight three-line stanzas in a syllable pattern of 8/8/2. This poetry type has no rhyme and is written in the first person with a twist. The twist is to be revealed within the last two stanzas. This form was created by Debra Gundy.
She watches news, her heart in mouth The world is again headed south No room for contrarian views Her teenagers she’s worried ’bout World leaders, to engage, refuse Her heart in mouth, she watches news
Glued to the screen, with bated breath None can measure her grief’s depth Nor any hear her poor heart keen Dried eyed she watches dance of death ‘t was certainly not unforeseen With bated breath, glued to the screen
Innocent dreams, put on a hold For ruthless ambition oh so cold The world is wringing hands it seems As destruction one sees unfold Under the gaze of fazed moonbeams Put on a hold, innocent dreams

Hopefully they will be crossing over to Romania by road tonight or tomorrow. We are keeping our fingers crossed.)
Chocolate eyes gaze steadily My eyes ask, “Me?” He thumps his tail My innards quail
It is colder than a witch’s teat Chilly poor feet Wait, my eyes plead He pays no heed
My eyes rebuking, out we go I can’t say no He lays warm head On raw feet dead
