Poetry challenge Tritina: the entries

This challenge produced some lovely poems as usual. In fact, I think some of my favourites are among these.

First in was Carol with a sort of poetic warcry 🙂

Blowing~Tritina | WritersDream9


Then this from Ken, dreamy and delicate.

Waves in Silence

The voice of a wave
lapping on the shore
this night of no wind

Soothes like no wind
nor rolling wave
on a familiar shore

On this foreign shore
with nary a trace of wind
and a voice in each wave

The calm of a lapping wave stroking the shore speaks more than any wind



From Kerfe this one which I found very mysterious and just faintly unsettling. Tarot has that effect.

Wheel of fortune


This lovely one from Janice who give the poem a subtle shift in meaning at the end

Snowstorm–Jane Dougherty’s Poetry Challenge #10: Tritina | Ontheland


Then beautifully happy poem from Veronica

Winter landscape | Simply Snapshots


This masterly poem from Doug with the twist in meaning and all.

Flee | Elusive Trope

Again, many thanks to all of you for taking some time out of the festivities to get the poetic cogs and gears working. I appreciate your efforts—they were certainly worth it.

I shall post the last challenge of 2015 tomorrow. I hope some of you will participate.

I used to do lots of things I didn't much enjoy. Now I am officially a writer. It's what I always wanted to be.

  1. Hiya Jane, I don’t usually respond to challenges, but this one grabbed me. I did a poem, but I got distracted and it needs a little looking over. So maybe in the next few days I’ll post it and refer back to this post. Thanks for that spark!
