Hey Chris...YooHoo!!
I just noticed that you chose branches, too, after I had already posted my own. You said that we think alike. HeeHee!!
But, I didn't try the triolet, like you did...yet!!!  But, that is the one I've had in mind to try. LOL

Good grief....the toilet...I mean....triolet was difficult, especially writing one out in the sun.
I have so much to learn!! Where was I in highschool? Oh ya....nevermind.

Karen, my dear serenity, how about you writing a poem for all of us about the oak tree - witch connection? I think it only fair since we have been such good kiddies. Huh? How about? Okay.....pleeeeeaaase?

just sitting around..reading. Being a GOOD girl.

(not wasting forum space with this)

branches
branches withered cross the sky,
cuts the colors half their size,
turn around and say goodbye
branches withered cross the sky.
Time for me to break the lies
It's raining and I don't know why,
branches withered cross the sky
cuts the colors half their size

ugh..

Wind !! Did you post this? To my eyes, it is a triolet.  A lovely one at that. Are you sure of your age?!! Hmmm...perhaps an old soul - one that was an awesome poet! hugs, Chris

a triolet indeed take the top branches off and make sure your two repeating lines - the first and the last are strong - capitalize the repeating lines - the first letters . . . POST IT
Nice job Liz, did you know you were writing a triolet?

A Triolet is a poetic form consisting of only 8 lines.  Within a Triolet, the
1st, 4th, and  7th lines repeat, and the 2nd and 8th lines do as well.  The
rhyme scheme is simple:  ABaAabAB, capital letters representing
the repeated lines.

yes I knew that.. and branches was the title, not a part of the poem. I just don't like it. I'm just reading other people's stuff instead of writing..I..I'll say that I'm having a writer's block or something..

I've done triolets before..how could anyone write one without knowing what it was? ugh..excuse my bitterness, I've been good for too long

That's okay Wind. I think our brains are beginning to fry from thinking too much....lol.....at least mine are. You're younger and have more get up and go.


Sue - thanks for the info on triolets...makes me wonder now if I really wrote one or not. Can you let me know if I did...or didn't? I don't know where it is....it did a pretty quick Passionate Plummet, but it's called Branches as well. Thanks, Chris

Well, I did what I  thought  was a triolet on Karen's witches story, but now I don't know if it was one or not, because of the rhyme AB thingy. And are not all of the first lines supposed to be capitalized....or just the 1st, 2nd, 4th, 7th, and 8th?? Tell me, somebody. Okay?
Thanks.

Ethel...from what I can tell, it looks to me like
you did it perfectly.  It appears that you followed
the rhyme scheme correctly, and the catitalization
is an optional thing.  Some people prefer to capitalize,
and others don't.  

And?...I LOVE your poem.

Thanks Vicky. I just went back and
edited it after I read some more about triolets. It said to make it harder, there could be syllable count of ten on each line. And, I fixed it where the third and fifth and sixth lines don't start with capitals.
Go see what you think of it now, okay??
Thanks.

Yep...it still looks great to me, Ethel.
I like it both ways.

Question though...are you seeing somewhere, where
it says that those particular lines are not supposed
to be capitalized in that format?  I'm not seeing that,
so I was just wondering.
