A triolet is a French form of 8 lines with ABaAabAB repetition…for dVerse MTB


wet scarlet leaves carpet cold ground

embraced with dew and kissed by mist

hidden in fog, pumpkins lie ’round

wet scarlet leaves carpet cold ground

ghost cows graze cornfield, make no sound

where earth meets sky in phantom tryst

wet scarlet leaves carpet cold ground

embraced with dew and kissed by mist

    you created a feeling of being kissed by nature’s love and wrapped in a warm embrace after the cold – so very lovely

    The covered ground is a sign that winter is just around the corner!

    Love a triolet… it used to be my favorite for, but such a long time since I wrote one.
