About the book

Welcome to a very special collection of positive poetry that embraces elements of nature, romantic ideals, and inspirational vibes.

“Rhythm Flourishing: A Collection of Kindku and Sixku” showcases two unique, brand-new poetry forms created by Cendrine Marrouat and David Ellis, the co-founders of Auroras & Blossoms, a platform celebrating positivity and inspiration in art.
By taking elements of found poetry and Japanese poetry forms, Cendrine and David have developed a style of poetry known as the Kindku. The collection also features a selection of gorgeous images and poems from Cendrine’s own visual poetry form — the Sixku.

Enjoy a divine series of poems inspired by a variety of well-known poets including Elizabeth Bishop, Emily Dickinson, John Keats, Emma Lazarus, William Wordsworth, Lord Byron, William Butler Yeats, Christina Rossetti, Elizabeth Barrett Browning, Maya Angelou, Sara Teasdale, Pablo Neruda and many others.

Learn how to write your very own Kindku and Sixku by reading this book and when you are done, consider submitting them to Auroras & Blossoms for publication.

One of the reviews for the book

Joshua Grant 5.0 out of 5 stars Two wonderful new styles of poetry!  Reviewed in the United States on October 3, 2020

Cendrine Marrouat and David Ellis inspire and sooth in their brand new type of poetry book Rhythm Flourishing! This book introduces two new poetry types developed by the authors: the Kindku and the Sixku. The Kindku has a syllable scheme similar to Japanese poetry and explores positive messages while the Sixku is more of a visual poetry style. It is so much fun exploring a new type of poetry (with a super catchy rhythm) and I loved the overwhelming positivity of the poems in this book! Poet or non, come find some inspiration and joy in the upbeat musings of Marrouat and Ellis!
