Light and Dark (a triolet)

This distance from the light to dark
Seems thus the same as life to death
On this Sojourn I must embark
This distance from the light to dark
‘Til sounding trumpets hail to hark
A soul awaiting brighter breath
This distance from the light to dark
Seems thus the same as life to death.

  1. Wow Scott, you actually wrote something I was able to read twice in one minute !!! I feel an overwhelming joy at not being mentally exhausted after reading your post and enjoyed it too !! Well Done !!! Is this a new trend??

    1. Okay! I get it! Yep, new trend, short and sweet. I’m thinking of sticking to posting poetry only for a while as I’ve been neglecting it. Laughing all the way!

  2. nice write..my poetry ability is weak at best. I have never tried any of the forms that require rules. I admire your ability to write something like this and actually have it make sense
