And do we find our way from yesterday
Riding forward through time eternally,
Rising up from ashes to make our way
Fast into bright sunrise so carelessly,
Nor in one place do we intend to stay,
For the best of life lies in the seeking
That we continue without any pause,
Riding from day to day without breaking
In what is now our everlasting cause
In an endless love without forsaking
Note: Here I have followed a ten-line scheme, with each line containing ten syllables, and with a rhyme scheme of a, b, a, b, a, c, d, c, d, c. Also, I have written the poem in a creative description of the illustration/artwork. However, I have no name for this form. Suggestions are welcome … unless, of course, this is already a named form! For now I’ve simply called it a Ten x Ten Descriptive.
