Simple abhanga are four lines in length, with respective syllable counts of 6, 6, 6 and 4 … the rhyming scheme is “a-b-b-c”
~ Jack Huber’s Poetic Form – Abhanga

waxing moon, waxing year
potential is growing
with the seeds we’re sowing
dreams to harvest

Is it wrong to use contractions to make the syllable counts work?
