Painting by Sandra M. Haight
The Wind and Sea The mighty wind unleashed its gusty song across the tranquil, undulating sea, and stirred her body with his breath-filled kiss. Set out to resurrect the dormant wave, with ever-gaining speed, began to ride her surface till it formed the throbbing swell. She came alive with joy from wind's strong kiss, and quivered to the music of his song to join as one...the wanton wind and sea. Vibrating life into the waking swell, as higher climbed the ever-mounting wave, the wind pursued its frantic, urgent ride. In rapturous communion, wind, and sea, succumbing to the magic of their song, together formed the wave with passioned kiss, and reached the grand finale of their ride; with great dynamic thrust, exploding swell, at last attained their thrill, the highest wave. Wind's lusty song has left the tranquil sea; its breathless kiss has bid farewell the wave to end its ride, and put to rest the swell. Sandra M. Haight ~1st Place~ Premiere Contest: 2019 Poetry Marathon Mile 11 Sponsor: Mark Toney Judged: 01/17/2019 ~2nd Place~ Premiere Contest: The Poet's Fire Sponsor: Gregory R. Barden Judged: 12/07/2017 ~1st Place~ Contest: Wordscapes Sponsor: John Hamilton Judged: 08/17/2016 =========================================== The Tritina form is a mini version of a Sestina but there are three Tercets of three lines and a final line which uses all three words; 10 lines total. The three Tercet's use the same three ending words in a pattern. I intermingled two Tritina using six ending words in the required pattern with the last tercet using all six ending words from both of them. 1st Tercet: 1 2 3 song sea kiss 2nd Tercet: 4 5 6 wave ride swell 3rd Tercet: 3 1 2 kiss song sea 4th Tercet: 6 4 5 swell wave ride 5th Tercet: 2 3 1 sea kiss song 6th Tercet: 5 6 4 ride swell wave 7th Tercet: 1 2 3 4 5 6 song sea kiss wave ride swell
