Breathe

The Clarity Pyramid is a poetry form designed and constructed by Jerry P. Quinn.

A Clarity Pyramid is a poem consisting of two triplets and a single line (7 lines in all). Usually, this poem is center aligned when displayed.

The first triplet has 1, 2, and 3 syllables. The title of the poem is the one-syllable word of the first triplet, which is displayed in all capital letters. This line is followed by a two-syllable line, and then a three-syllable line, both of which clarify the definition of the poem, or are synonyms for the title.

The second triplet has 5, 6, and 7 syllables. Its design is based around a life event contained within the triplet which helps give a poetic view oroutlook on the first line (title).

The last line is 8 syllables, and is in quotations as this line contains a quote that defines the first word (title).

Words:
mistake, reason, breathe, maybe, turning, glued

BREATHE
just breathe
no reason

maybe some mistake
no turning back, just go
don’t be glued to what you do

“life’s full of ups and downs, just breathe”
