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. 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.”

        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.
