Blown Away (a triolet)

dandelion

Hope just blew away on the wind;
I couldn’t hold onto its string.
There’s no love left here to defend.
Hope just blew away on the wind.
It’s finally too broken to mend,
and time to stop wearing the ring.
Hope just blew away on the wind;
I couldn’t hold onto its string.

ABOUT:
For today’s prompt, write a “last straw” poem. Everyone encounters situations in which they decide they’re not going to take it anymore (whatever “it” happens to be). It could be a loud noise, an abusive partner, someone taking the Pop Tart but not throwing the box away, or whatever. Write about the moment, the aftermath, or take an unexpected path to your poem.

POETIC FORM: TRIOLET
A diagram of the triolet would look like this:

A (first line)
B (second line)
a (rhymes with first line)
A (repeat first line)
a (rhymes with first line)
b (rhymes with second line)
A (repeat first line)
B (repeat second line)
