dVerse, poetry

What is a Triolet — Don’t Ask Me!

 

dVerse is asking for a Triolet with a rule of the meter is iambic tetrameter, that is, each line has four accented syllables with each accented syllable preceded by an unaccented syllable… (gulp! Hmmm!)

My attempt:

Very strange thing the world today
To rid itself of God
Why? — People just want to play
Indeed the world I see today
Will soon discover as they stray
Firing God not easy
A diverse world I see today
No wonder we feel queasy

OR

Very strange thing the world today

To rid itself of God

Why? — People just want to play

Indeed the world I see today

Will soon discover as they stray

Firing God! Oh how odd

A diverse world I see today

To rid itself of God

        1. Personally, I don’t believe God is pleased with anyone who is forced to pray, children or adults. Teaching children is a parent right not the same as forcing when their children are adults they can choose for themselves, that is God’s Will, we choose, its called FreeWill.

    1. Thank you so much! I am a newbie at creative writing poetry, but learning so much and loving it too! I was complaining to my adult daughter how I don’t understand other poets of what they are writing about, and she answered me, “Don’t worry mom, they probably don’t understand your poems either.”
