A Triolet a Day

Today’s Poetic Asides prompt was to write a “best ever” poem. Robert Lee Brewer wrote his as a triolet, so I just had to come up with a triolet response:

A Triolet a Day

When I wrote my first triolet
I got stuck on the rhyme
and struggled with what to say
when I wrote my first triolet.
Be the best form ever, I think it may
and I write them all the time.
When I wrote my first triolet
I got stuck on the rhyme.

And here is the first (or maybe almost first) triolet I wrote, that I was referring to:

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.
