Triolets have been my thing, my poetry form thing, for a minute. Alas, it is time to move on. For awhile, I figured my next poetry form to tackle would be kyrielles, because they sound like songs and are French like triolets. However, tankas have snatched my affection away from the kyrielle, being the fan of alliteration...
Well, I guess that's not entirely true. I was about to say that being a fan of alliteration, I liked the idea of switching Triolet Thursdays, to Tanka Thursdays, but that isn't exactly alliteration now, is it? The 't' sound in tanka, and the 't' sound in Thursday don't sound enough alike to truly follow the rules of alliteration. The same applies to the 't' in triolet.
*hand to forehead*
Feeling all types of fraudulent right now.
Alright, so it's better to say I just like having the two t's next to each other then. Oh, and I don't have to feel forced to rhyme with tankas. Yes, tankas. I did intend to talk about them at the beginning of all this.
Anyway, here is my first one:
thirty-one flavored segments
except for English line breaks
breaking the original.
