2010 November PAD- Day 16

PAD, Day 16 already. The prompt is to write a stacking poem. I briefly thought about reusing my Day 4 “containment” poem, which also references stacking Matryoshka dolls, but decided that would be cheating. Anyway, I really wanted to write another triolet— I love that form! (And I wanted to speak like Yoda.)

Stacking Up

To write a perfect triolet,
first focus on the rhyme.
Then think of something pithy to say,
to write a perfect triolet.
If you’re not careful, get stuck you may,
it happens all the time.
To write a perfect triolet,
first focus on the rhyme.

(Note: “Triolet”, being a French word, does NOT rhyme with violet, but rather with “Frito-Lay”!)
