Trois-par-Huit

It’s the Saturday Mix – Lucky Dip at MindLoveMisery’s Menagerie. Today we are tasked with creating a Trois-par-Huit.

Trois-par-Huit (Three-by-Eight or Octa-Tri for short), a poem containing three stanzas of 3, 3 and 2 lines OR 3, 2 and 3 lines: 8 lines total with a syllable count of 3, 6, 9, 12, 12, 9, 6, 3. The rhyming pattern is AAB BBC CC where the last line is the title of the poem and summarizes the meaning of the poem. *Note: These poems are to appear center aligned.


 

You and me

Some say it’s meant to be

Flames to a moth: A Phoenix rising from ashes

There’s been too many near misses, burns and crashes

Hot tears cling to our eyelashes

It’s time we ceased to be

You and me.
