Slow Leak

There is a well that will not fill
despite abundant waters flow
and though the shimmer stars shine still,
there is a well that will not fill.
I claw along and bide until
a ray breaks through, but yet I know
there is a well that will not fill
despite abundant waters flow.

    Wow, you sure are talented Kris, I am going through your writes and each one is a gem indeed! This really flowed well and I enjoyed the sprinkling of alliteration too-- wonderful triolet! I could only hope to write one as nice as this! - nikko :)

    Kris, I love your writing. You seem to have an innate ability to write to strict form, yet allow your words to flow completely naturally. You give me something to aspire to as a writer. This triolet is just superb. Glad you joined the Soup ~ Sharon :)

    I notice Andrea's comment below. You should have entered a Triolet in her contest. You have the nice 8 syllable meter that she looks for in Triolets(well, or 10....but you really did well with these 8 syllable lines). This is a superb Triolet, I enjoyed reading it~Chris

    Hey, you can really write a triolet, Kris. I don't recognize this as one from my contest on movie scene triolets. HAve you done many triolets? Luv,Andrea
