A Medley of Poems
from a new garden to the old moon
Today, I have just a few recent glimpses of things around me.
My newly planted flowers have now become a garden.
The moment my blooms
become a garden is when
hummingbirds feast there.
The warmer weather has brought out small night-creatures.
Foreground sounds ~ I hear
night cricket chirps, then pauses,
chorus in background
Although I often compose my poems with phrases flowing together past any line breaks (technically known by the French-derived term enjambment), I decided to create this tritriplicata as a series of discrete phrases defined just by the line structure.
Luminous just ere dawn,
Holds conversation with her neighbor,
As they set.
For more tritriplicata poetry, here is the poet that created the form!
And don’t forget to order your copy of The Hillside Diary!
Wow! Thank you for the kind mention! Much appreciated. And, I like the poetry. Great idea to use the limits of the tritriplicata to create separate sentences. It's hard. Very well executed. I love the imagery of the moon having a conversation with Venus. Makes me want to go out and have a look at it, even though I'm not sure if I could find (or even see) Venus.
Funny thing: when I read the garden poem, I heard your voice reading it. One of the many benefits of my podcast :).
