Castles in the sand – Huitain form

The beauty of the morning lies

In its startling uncertainty

What happens before each day dies

Life gives no one a guarantee

Mere specks in this infinity

We dream of castles in the sand

Our vision lacks all clarity

Much beyond what we understand

Dear readers,

You just read a huitain, which is an old French verse form. 

It consists of eight lines of eight syllables per line, with a rhyming scheme of:

a b a b  b c b c.

      1. Having more issues than I want to have. Prepping to go to a theatre troop meeting for the first time tonight! Dedicated writing time will happen tomorrow (of after I get back, depends on energy levels).
