Poetry Form: Clarity Pyramid

The Clarity Pyramid has seven lines.

  • The first line is the subject or focus of your poem; the second and third lines are either synonyms for the title or they help clarify the subject.
  • The second stanza is a life event centered around the first stanza.
  • The last line redefines the first line.

 Example of Clarity Pyramid

PAINT
pigment
colorings
childhood memory
coated in bright layers
with a daisy border dream
“milky morsels plucked from rainbows”

My Clarity Pyramid 😀

Mysterious Disappearance

Can’t
Think now
Muse ate words
Creative bane
Too much description
Plot missing in action
“Perspective altered rearranged”
