Bluejay Array

Bluejay boldly dining on dangling tray.
Returning to re-nourish almost any day.
Fine feathers of cornflower color,
barbed head sporting a sable black collar,
some birds may seem much duller.
Dense alabaster abdomen display
completes its classic apparel array.

 

Author Notes:

 

A Bluejay is a bird with beautiful pastel blue, black, and white coloring. It also has a distinctive pointed head. This one is standing in the seed tray on my back porch. This poem is intended to merely be a poetic description.

This poem is a Complex Alliterisen.
The Complex Alliterisen is an invented verse form originating in India. Udit Bhatia, a student at Delhi Public School System, first created the form. It relies heavily on alliteration and carries a variable syllabic meter. Here is a format with mathematical skill requirements, as it adds and subtracts syllables to determine the length of each line.

The Complex Allitersen is determined as follows:
1. A heptastich, (a poem in 7 lines).
2. Syllabic. The first line of the poem sets up the number of syllables for each subsequent line. L1,L6, and L7 are the same number of syllables.
Formula:……………………Example 1…Example 2…Example 3
L1= x syllables……………….6……………..8…………….10
L2= x + 2 syllables………….8………….. 10…………….12
L3= x -1 syllables……………5……………..7………………9
L4= x + 1 syllables………….7……………..6…………….11
L6= x syllables………………..6……………..8…………….10
L7= x syllables………………..6……………..8…………….10

3. Alliterated. There must be at least 2 alliterations in each line.
4. The form may be rhymed or unrhymed. For this form is chose to rhyme: aabbbaa
