    Brainstorm (My brain is fried at the moment)

    Discussion in 'Poetry' started by Arcadeus, Feb 28, 2017.

    First some information:

    A(10)A(10)
    -(10)B(8)
    C(10)C(10)
    C(10)B(8)
    -(10)B(8)
    B(8)

    D(10)D(10)
    -(10)B(8)
    E(10)E(10)
    E(10)B(8)
    -(10)B(8)
    B(8)

    F(10)F(10)
    -(10)B(8)
    G(10)G(10)
    G(10)B(8)
    -(10)B(8)
    B(8)

    I(10)I(10)
    I(10)B(8)

    B(8)

    This is the structure of each stanza of the poem I am working/struggling on now.
    Letters are rhyme scheme, Numbers are Syllables, Dashes are non-rhyming lines.

    The form was modified from The Raven-Poe. I am considering making the final line a progression ending in different adjectives based on the subject of the Stanza. Using (-ing) as the rhyming root.

    4 stanzas for my goal.
    Stanza 1- Beginning(Air)
    Stanza 2- Air+Fire
    Stanza 3- Air+Nature
    Stanza 4- Air+Earth

    The elements are personified, and are in a relationship with air at one point or another.

    Each final line of a Stanza would be a response to Air's Dance as it affects the element (Physically/emotionally)

    So Stanza 1 final line
    Air's dance is revitalizing. (Only a possibility, but it must relate to how Air see's her own dance. By the way- the dance is a tornado.)

    Okay so Stanza 2- Air and Fire- The dance causes fire to at first blaze passionately and than to disappear. So I need a final -ing word for that.
    Air's dance can be horrifying.

    Stanza 3- Air and Nature- Nature is attacked by a jealous fire. Nature has her seeds spread through Air's Dance.
    Air's dance --------- -ing.

    Stanza 4- Air and Earth(Might change name to Stone) meet and Earth is the stability that Air needs. Earth begins a pillar but eventually spreads everywhere. Air assumes Earth disappeared like Fire, but Earth is now everywhere and comforts Air.
    Air's dance, always (4 syllables ending in -ing)

    So... help me brainstorm the -ing words for these final words of the final lines of the 4 stanzas?

    Appreciate it. (Also, Nature began as Water in the first edition of the story, but I didn't like how that worked out.)
