For NaPoWriMo/GloPoWriMo 2016 – Day 7 (to prompt)
Today’s prompt is to write a Tritina (see below for the explanation).
Lightly dusted feathers
Memories of moments past
Left dwindling in dark places
Carried from their places
Drawn by flights of other feathers
Crooning gently from their gestational past
As time now leaves behind all past
Bemoaning echoes of lost places
Asking nothing new from feathers
Yet feathers still collect the past and hide now in new places

“The tritina is a shorter cousin to the sestina, involving three, three-line stanzas, and a final concluding line. Three “end words” are used to conclude the lines of each stanza, in a set pattern of ABC, CAB, BCA, and all three end words appear together in the final line.”
For added fun I created a repetitive pattern for the first letter of each line in each stanza plus other technical patterns – I’m sure you can spot them! Let me know if you do….
I know… I’m nuts!:)
