Poem: Triolet – ” White Sand.” 

A Triolet is a poetic form consisting of only 8 lines. Within a Triolet, the 1st, 4th, and 7th lines repeat, and the 2nd and 8th lines do as well. The rhyme scheme is simple: ABaAabAB, capital letters representing the repeated lines.

Make writing a Triolet more challenging! Make each line 8 syllables in length (4 metrical feet), written in iambic tetrameter (the more common way), or try it in pentameter (English version) where each line only has 10 syllables (5 metrical feet).

Please see Shadow Poetry for more information on this poetry form.


Thanks to the Daily Prompt for the word prompt object. My object is white sand.


Holding, the spheres in my hand,

Observing granules shine, glint.

Beautiful things to look at, white sand.

Holding, the spheres in my hand,

To glorious to understand,

Leaving this paradise, done stint.

Holding, the spheres in my hand,

Observing granules shine, glint.

  1. I enjoyed your triolet (I’ve never written one, and it sounds intriguing)! Love that you’ve used sand as your object, and with such a lovely descriptive scene:
    “Leaving this paradise, done stint.
    Holding the spheres in my hand,
    Observing granules shine, glint.”

    1. Not so bad. I thought hard at first to but you just remember for rhyme (a) – lines 1,4, and 7 are the same line. And for lines (b) lines 2 and 8 repeat. As for the rest of the lines follow the rhyme scheme as you would normally. Much luck. Looking forward to see you try this if you wish.
