Where the end becomes the beginning

In the water I would die, beginning a new life in thee,

my soul, my deeds, my love would be given to him.

On a journey to find the true me,

In the water I would die. Beginning a new life in thee,

the roads discovered, challenged me to be,

longing for a day, to walk by his side akin.

In the water I would die. Beginning a new life in thee,

straightening a broken soul, healing from within.

Today’s writing challenge, is a non-fiction piece inspired by the literary tool, the Triolet (tree-uh-lay).

The Triolet is a form of French Poetry, with the earliest examples written in the 13th Century. It is a stanza poem of eight lines, the rhyme scheme is ABaAabAB. That is, the first, third, fourth, fifth and seventh lines rhyme with each other, and the second, sixth and eighth lines rhyme with each other. It includes a punctuation trick in lines four and seven when lines one, four and seven repeat.

  1. I don’t understand the technicalities of poetry, but this sounded great to me. I loved the repetition of “In the water, I would die.” I also really like the hopeful ending!
