(A Tritina For the Doppelganger within)
Tiger roaming free, a predator or prey?
Interminable, a quotient of your star
The teeth, my dentistry, agitate equivocally
Correlative in mien, virulent smiles perch equivocally
Dismiss thou ubiquity, thereupon apace; hie sweet prey
Lest ephemerally glint thy fulgent star
Ingénue, esurience wrests hold my star
Unseen tenets stir equivocally
E’er toggling ‘tween predator and prey
Sweetest Prey, beseeching star, fates aligned, equivocally.
Over at D'Verse, Sam Peralta is hosting Form-For-All and has introduced us to a pretty fun form, the Tritina. In short, it's somewhat related to the popular Sestina. For more, I urge you to take the time and read his excellent write-up of the form, including the history of the form and a brief bio of it's originator. Once finished reading Sam's article, click on the Linky and check out the Tristina's created by the other poets at D'Verse. And, as always, if you feel inspired, create a Tristina of your own, and then share it with D'Verse.
Another quick note:
Been kind of off-line past couple days, well off the computer anyhow. I was able to read all the comments that came in, but never had a chance to properly thank all those who congratulated me on joining the D'Verse staff.
It is an honor to step behind the bar and am looking forward to, hopefully, creating some really interesting and inspiring posts. Everyone over at D'Verse is top notch, and I've always felt that way. In fact, I've always felt like a part of the D'Verse crew, which I'm sure I'm not the only one to feel as such. I assume this is due to the engagement of the staff, who've ever only been respectful, educated, and willing to share/inspire/expand what and who they are, with... well, basically the world.
So, needless to say, but I am thrilled to be joining such fine poets and more importantly people. Anyhow, thanks again to all those who offered their thanks and support, sorry about not replying personally to each, but did want to make mention here at least. Ok, enough about me. Head on over and get your Tritina on!!! Cheers.
