Disastrous free-fall Into consuming ashes of heartbreak, He landed with deafening thud. Wounded, spirits deflated Rivulets of tears, shed. He soon rose like the Phoenix To dizzying heights after Misfortune mercilessly clipped His mighty wings mid-air. Down, down, down to earth He plummeted, though Spared Icarus' fate. Then came his transformation, For love worked its glorious magic. Hemorrhage within him, stemmed. Now he soars the open sky With new wings sturdier Than before; right as rain again.

Nice, Edward. Saw a recent Tristich posted, got curious, and landed here. I imagined the form used as in old testament scripture, but I like the shorter lines here too.

Marvelous writing, Edward. I have not had much luck with the tristich, but you have succeeded admirably. I really enjoyed the references to classic personages. Good stuff!

Thank you very much, Milt:-) I haven't tried a tristich in a long time. This is probably my first this year. I wish you luck with them!
