New To Me Poetry-Triolet: Memories Fade

Memories fade into the twilight mist;
*confusion-loss* sense of self gone.
Where was I when love first kissed,
memories fade into the twilight mist.
 
Children are treasures sorely missed;
faces of family and friends hidden by curtains drawn.
Memories fade into the twilight mist.
Confusion…loss…sense of self gone.
 
 

For Paint The World With Words “Be Inspired” challenge. This week’s poetry form is the Triolet. A triolet is characterized by having two stanzas of four lines each. The first line of the first stanza also serves as the fourth and seventh line of the poem. The second line of the first stanza also serves as the last line of the poem. It has an ABaA abAB rhyme scheme (capital letters denote repeated lines). There are no restrictions on the length of the lines.

Head over to PTWWW and check out other writers take on the challenge.

Hope you enjoy.

Happy Reading and Writing!

  1. Lovely! I really liked how your thoughts turned out into this poem. I am glad you took the challenge and did well with it! I especially like the expression element in the poem under ** and I feel that was cleverly repeated as a phrase in the second paragraph. Brilliant! Good imagery and nice thought along the lines. Overall, I really enjoyed reading this and thanks for your participation!

    🙂

    Keep writing:)
