Dusty Memories

amidst my walls
a discolored rose
a wedding photo
a collection of memories
 
a discolored rose
a moment of mourning
as fragile as life
 
a wedding photo
of lovers once parted
united in the beyond
 
a collection of memories
coalesce together
a collage of juncture
 
 
 
 i found this form online and wanted to experiment with it...
 
Trimeric
Trimeric \tri-(meh)-rik\ n: a four stanza poem in which the first stanza has four lines and 
the last three stanzas have three lines each, with the first line of each repeating the 
respective line of the first stanza.  The sequence of lines, then, is abcd, b – -, c – -, d – -.

Your lines flow so wonderfully from one stanza to the next, it is like a lovely water fall that pauses briefly in a small pool before cascading onto the next. You made this form one I am inspired to try in the future Sandy. Mahalo!

Sharp verses in the vivid imagery pulled me right into the scene. I really like the poetic form you chose. Well done :)

perhaps one day i will...haven't really thought about it much :)

I've heard of similar style poems, Sandy. I like seeing you use different forms. But for me you will always be one of the most awesome of the free versers that I know. Love this one too.

Thank you Andrea...this style is similar to free verse except the one rule of reusing the lines from the first stanza in the remaining stanzas :) hugs

Go ahead and edit this as Trimeric. You followed the definition to a 'T'. It's gratifying to find an adventurous soul inside a natural Poetess.... Great work, sweetheart.... Jake

from what i saw it did not contain rhyme, meter or a syllable count...i posted how it was worded exactly beneath the forms...the examples varied and some had short lines, some had big...to me it's like a free verse with the rule of the first verse 2nd, 3rd and 4th lines beginning the remaining stanzas... and thank you for your visit Sara :)

languid in its expression and so heartfelt, sandra.. loving the sentimental falir of your pen!..:) huggs
