Hello Everyone, and Mark -
Thank you for this question. Yes. There is a way to write rhythm. Look
at the SignWriting eLessons on the web:

SignWriting eLessons

There you will find a whole section on writing tempo and
rhythm...starting with this web page:

Tempo and Rythm

and continuing for around 5 pages...

Val ;-)
