Badger's Hexastitch

This form was found on PoetryMagnumOpus with the information below.  I will give full attribution to the creator when I can.

Badger's Hexastich is a fun variation of the Crapsey Cinquain invented by out own Badger. It simply expands the cinquain to another line and 2 more syllables.

Badger's Hexastich is:
  • a poem in 6 lines.
  • syllabic, 2-4-6-6-4-2.
  • unrhymed, optional rising and falling end-words.
rooted in mind,
not tasting ripe berries,
the oozing summer scent,
window open,
~~Phil Wood
First flight,
small granddaughter
visits Grandma with Dad,
Mom, brother and sisters
in soccer play-offs
back home.
--Judi Van Gorder

My Example Poem


Fall down
consider tears--
crawl to where grandpa sits
grab onto grandpa's leg
grin like a fox--
stand up
