You’ve never heard of this one, have you? The name was used by Sarah instead of tilus for last week’s poetry challenge, and I liked it so much I’ve given it a poetry form of its own. if you don’t get on with the trilune, just use the photo to prompt a poem in any style you feel appropriate on the theme of
These are the rules (but since I made them up I won’t mind if you don’t stick to all of them):
A trilune is a poem of three stanzas of three lines of 3×3 syllables each (that’s 9 in case you were wondering), circling a central theme. The rhyme is on the third line of each stanza so you get a pattern of abc dec fgc.
My example (the only one in existence, I’m afraid) is below.
Please post your link in the comments box before next Tuesday in time for the round up. Have fun!
We met in a dark and crowded room,
You with your eyes of such piercing green,
Caught in the pull of your gaze, I fell.
First touch, first kiss, first tender embrace,
But not a sight of your heart beneath,
You’d never a single secret tell.
Last time we met in a darkened room,
Your eyes were the green of long-dried kelp,
That drifts away on the ebb tide’s swell.
