[532] The Divine Tide

What escapes us every day tires us⁣
But, is it keeping me alive?⁣
Eyes linger, mesmerised by stardust⁣
What escapes us every day tires us⁣
Warring feelings, which one to trust?⁣
A headless dove clutters my design⁣
What escapes us every day tires us ⁣
But, is it keeping you alive?

“NaPoWriMo Day 4: Today, let’s try writing triolets. 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.”

This one was the hardest yet. I usually forgo structure for feeling or rawness. In this one, I had to remain in the box, so I aimed for the stars.

  1. You did such an amazing job with the structure. I absolutely love the format, but at the same time you kept your usual mystical/magical flow…that is true talent!!! You know I love the way your titles connect :)…this one is especially powerful. Amazingly done, my friend…can’t wait to see what’s next 🤍🤗
