NaPoWriMo 2013 – Day 23

napofeature3Over at NaPoWriMo, today’s suggested prompt has us putting together a triolet. The triolet is a short poem of eight lines with only two rhymes used throughout. The requirements of this fixed form are straightforward: the first line is repeated in the fourth and seventh lines; the second line is repeated in the final line; and only the first two end-words are used to complete the tight rhyme scheme. Thus, the poet writes only five original lines, giving the triolet a deceptively simple appearance: ABaAabAB, where capital letters indicate repeated lines.

Ragdoll No More

By: Meena Rose

An endless stare, a bitter match;
I will be a part of this no more.
The sea offers a finer catch;
An endless stare, a bitter match;
There is no more mend, no more patch;
Funny, you think you’re keeping score;
An endless stare, a bitter match;
I will be a part of this no more.

    Well done, partner. This poem tells of resignation, but also resolve the do/have better. Good. Sometimes that’s what each of us has to do.
