Cats Eyes – A Reflective Perspective


Cats Eyes – A Reflective Perspective

Eyes of the night begin to shine,
Outlining a path in the dark,
Reflections of light guide the way.

Drivers cruise through dimming streets,
Lines on the road fade away,
Eyes of the night begin to shine.

Headlights beaming into nothing,
Refracting points of light return,
Outlining a path in the dark.

Like a celestial constellation,
Keeping motorists on the road,
Reflections of light guide the way.


Cascade, a form created by Udit Bhatia, is all about repetition, but in a smooth cascading way like a waterfall. The poem does not have any rhyme scheme.  The first verse can have any number of lines and dictates the number of verses to follow. Each line of the first verse in turn become the last line of the following verses: ABC, deA, fgB, hiC, or ABCD, efA, ghB, ijC, klD.

Writing 101, Day 4: You found inspiration in one word and used it as a springboard for a post idea. Images — including photographs and works of art — can also act as starting points for stories, essays, poems, and personal musings. For this exercise, use an image as the creative spark for today’s post. You might use it as the setting for a story or poem, write about how it makes you feel, or describe a memory conjured by it.
