Hi everyone! Grace here to showcase another invented verse form, synchronicity. This poetry form is written in the first person revealing accidental yet seemingly synchronized events

The definition of synchronicity is the state or fact of being synchronous or simultaneous; synchronism. Coincidence of events that seem to be meaningfully related.

As a poetry form, this consists of eight three-line stanzas in a syllable pattern of 8/8/2. This poetry type has no rhyme and is written in the first person with a twist. The twist is to be revealed within the last two stanzas. This form was created by Debra Gundy.

Example 1:
Charcoal Shades Of Gray

Thin ray of light, parted curtains,
slight illumination within,
he sits.

Age spots rest upon head and hands,
thinning hair mostly white and gray,

Bible aside, devotions done,
quietly repeating the verse
he loves.

By the fire, age worn bones warm,
reminiscing through past echo’s,
of life.

Deep furrows darkening the brow,
darkness below moist eyes of gray,
long lost.

The scope within reality,
charcoal shades of gray forever,
long past.


The artist’s sketch in charcoal shades,
depict a man of many years,
hard times.

Is this man’s reality through
the scope within the artist’s mind,
or not?

Example 2:
To Drown in Sorrow (Synchronicity)

Enormous thunderheads roll in,
darkness, despair my only friends,
I cry.

Lightning, thunder heading this way,
turbulent thoughts, twisting inside,
no sun.
