Day 23 – Triolet on a Storm

Hello all, I’m trying out the NaPoWriMo prompt again today, as it was a structure this time! A triolet (where upper case is a strict repeat and lowercase a rhyme) ABaAabAB, in iambic tetrameter (duh-DAH-duh-DAH.-duh-DAH-duh-Dah..).

It’s one of my first actual attempts at a real structure of poem, so here’s to firsts!

The FIRST National Monument designated was Devil’s Tower in Wyoming. Wyoming was the FIRST state to give women the right to vote. Yellowstone (partly in Wyoming) was made the FIRST official National Park in 1872. The first coal mine in Wyoming was in Carbon in 1867. The first Dude Ranch in Wyoming was the Eaton Ranch, near Wolf. The Eaton’s also came up with the term “dude”.

Triolet on a Storm

The sky is dropping diamonds, love
they mist up from the foggy street
the ginkgo leaves gilding above
The sky is dropping diamonds, love
the winter calls through some sort of
hypnotic street-lit new moon suite
The sky is dropping diamonds, love
they mist up from the foggy street.
