Hello, all. I hope this twelfth day of Na/GloPoWriMo is treating you well.
Today, our featured participant is Katie Staten, who provides us with a humorous twist on Day Eleven’s floriography pompt.
Our poetry resource for the day is Ours Poetica, a poetry YouTube Channel, where you will find new video poems three times a week.
For today’s prompt (optional, as always), I’d like to challenge you to write a triolet. These eight-line poems involve repeating lines and a tight rhyme scheme. The repetitions and rhymes can lend themselves to humorous poems, as well as to poems expressing dramatic or sorrowful moods. And sometimes the repetitions can be used in deceptive ways, by splitting the words in a given line into different sentences, and making subtle changes, as in this powerful triolet by Sandra McPherson.
