Saturday Mix – Lucky Dip, 7 September 2019

Welcome to the Saturday Mix – Lucky Dip, 7 September 2019!

For this week’s Lucky Dip, I have reached into my mystery bag and pulled out a Trillonet. The topic is up to you!

You may be thinking to yourself, What on earth is a Trilonnet?

Luckily, Shadow Poetry has an explanation…

Trilonnet, created by Shelley A. Cephas, is a 14-line poem made up of four three-line verses of 8 syllables (iambic tetrameter) and one rhyming couplet or four three-lined verses of 10 syllables (iambic pentameter) and one rhyming couplet.

Each 3 line verse is an unrhymed triplet. Each triplet has a rhyme scheme of abc. It is related to a sonnet in that it made up of 14 lines. There are 2 rhyme schemes for this form:

abc abc abc abc dd

or abc cba abc cba dd

This form is written in either iambic tetrameter or iambic pentameter.

Example of Trilonnet

Example #1:
Summer Daze

A summer chill not often felt
when sunshine is so strong and bright
in season of delight and fun.

Oppressive heat, it has been dealt
as tempers flare, burn and ignite;
dog days of summer are not done.

Each year to wonder how we’ve dwelt
with heat while waiting for the night
to end the sweltering hot sun.

So hopefully we will not melt
before fall comes and ends our plight,
a respite from the heat is won.

The summer months have slowly passed,
humidity is gone at last.

    Sarah, I think that there may be a problem with your Mr. Linky button.
