Who's up for writing a 'Rictameter' about any aspect of dreams or dreaming; etc.?!

A humble sample of the form:


I dream,
my mind adrift
(with all things wild and fair)
as sea winds sweeping silent slopes,
paint sunset softly on the hills of time
where love and youth have wandered far.
Mid memory-meadows
murmuring mists
I dream!


Please post your 'Rictameter' in open forum # 40 and provide the link here!

Enjoy!

Just hoping this helps those wondering about the structure of the Rictameter~

~Ricky
Oh so tricky
Done in proper format
Syllable count is where it's at
Begin with two, then four, six, eight and ten
Let it flow backwards once again
Until you wind back down
Where you began
Ricky~

Good challenge my friend~

Although the two (alleged) 'poetry form and analysis' websites I consulted showed several (alleged) 'award winning' Rictameters beginning with first lines like: "I thought" and "Love sings", etc.; I have been told the beginning and ending lines have to be 1 word
(2 syllables); ergo, perhaps this should have been:

Dreaming!
[Rictameter]

Dreaming,
my mind adrift
(with all things wild and fair)
as sea winds sweeping silent slopes,
paint sunset softly on the hills of time
where love and youth have wandered far
mid memory-meadows
murmuring mists,
Dreaming

Bruce~
The challenge is an excellent one ... the structure is considered to be a 'deviation' from the strict format when two WORDS, instead of two SYLLABLES are used to start and end the Rictameter ...~

Glad to see you come in and add the information ... many of us often inspired to try something new by participating in the challenges presented~

The Rictameter format is, to me, one of the loveliest out there ...~
They flow easily for me ... reckon it's just cause I like them so~

                  Wonder
               Silent thunder
          Light grips liquid mountain
        Tear perches on purple fountain
      Rainbow scatters into color feathers
           Ocean tailors yonder heather
          Wind weeps through mourning air
               Piercing whisper
                   Wonder

             dreaming
          slowly falling
    letting the mind wander
the lack of settle is sedate
drifting up, down, back, forth, around,about
     the subliminal becomes clear
      finding out all the wants
          oh how i love
             dreaming

Old Blues


Old blues
Notes never fade
Muffled horns improvise
Stories sung in whiskey voices
Conjure up barrooms filled with drink and smoke
While Louis, Ella and Billie
Will be immortalized
In the songs of
Old blues
