~~
THE SHELTERING BREATH

Nestled into the sheltering breath
Of how the days find rest in each other
In the alone shallow of the hardness of death
Nestled into the sheltering breath
Of warp and weave on life's eternal weft
In remembrance of the being held by other
Nestled into the sheltering breath
Of how the days find rest in each other

SPRING HAS FOUND HER FACE… a triolet … day 23


23rd day of NaPoWriMo…  Today’s invitation/prompt, is to write a ‘triolet’.  Yippee, a new form to try.  Here is what a triolet is for those of you that can hardly wait, are quivering with unnatural excitement, to take this form on.  Whose in?:

“A triolet is an eight-line poem. All the lines are in iambic tetramenter (for a total of eight syllables per line), and the first, fourth, and seventh lines are identical, as are the second and final lines. This means that the poem begins and ends with the same couplet. Beyond this, there is a tight rhyme scheme (helped along by the repetition of lines) — ABaAabAB.”

SPRING HAS FOUND HER FACE

Thank heaven Spring has found her face

With green and Sun she comes to rise

Let the season begin the race

Thank heaven Spring has found her face

With hope she doesn’t leave in haste

To fast her leave would be a waste

Thank Heaven Spring has found her face

With green and Sun she comes to rise
