Triolet Thursday - Triolet #11 (Writing Fairies)

Writing Fairies

Writing fairies, send me a writer's group.
Honestly, I'd rather have a mentor
apparently I am out of the loop.
Writing fairies, send me a writer's group
words grow stronger from working with a troop
pushing my poetry to the center.

What is a triolet? Check the [corny] video I made on the original post if you need some explanation.

ahhh, the triolet.

i'm not a formalist by any terms, but they help me when i have a hard time figuring out what to write.

oh, and good luck finding a writing group/mentor. i MISS not being in a workshop so much. it's HELPFUL!

(just posted a poetry podcast on my blog. check it out).

Cool, so I'm not the only person who writes them.
I had a group that I used to write with from a workshop awhile back, but they met during the weekday at now that I'm working full-time I can't meet with them anymore. *sigh*
I'll stop by and see the podcast.
