how fitting that she has no head body, voluptuous her legs and booty amply spread her brain superfluous prized for her shape, this nameless nude a fertile femme, as seen by dudes prized for her shape prized for her shape objectified, imagined lewd
centuries passed, now civilized fair ladies fully dressed enhanced their breasts and rears to size by wearing buttresses they’ve bought the lie, dominated by their men, their worth negated they’ve bought the lie they’ve bought the lie the patriarchs are quite elated
and here we are in modern times sexualized, sad to say with silicone pumped plump behinds bootylicious boo-tays not much has changed, here men still reign liberated only in name not much has changed not much has changed for babes and chicks and ‘ho’s and dames
The Poetry Form: The Trijan Refrain, created by Jan Turner, consists of three 9-line stanzas, for a total of 27 lines. Line 1 is the same in all three stanzas, although a variation of the form is not to repeat the same line at the beginning of each stanza. In other words, the beginning line of each stanza can be different. The first four syllables of line 5 in each stanza are repeated as the double-refrain for lines 7 and 8. The Trijan Refrain is a rhyming poem with a set meter and rhyme scheme as follows:
Rhyme scheme: a/b/a/b/c/c/d,d refrain of first 4 words of line five /c
peeper chirps muted by mist hov’ring o’er the stream twilight’s serenade
crimson streams of daylight fading moon ascending the eastern sky we bid another day goodbye my weary bones need no persuading; sleepy, I am quickly fading ’twas another amazing day filled with blessings, hard work and play with bits of kindness, love, romance someone to share it with, to dance in warm embrace, to slowly sway
now I lay me down in the stillness of the gloam to your breath purring
Décima poetry is a 10 line stanza with 8 syllables per line. The rhyming pattern is abbaaccddc. Using the 10 lines there are generally two ways to organize: The 10 lines, or breaking the 10 lines into two stanzas using abba/accddc.
The abba/accddc requires either a period or semicolon after the fourth line break.
i see you
they could see
you were much more
but they just saw a tree
not your vibrant, dynamic core
your roots winding deep beneath the earth’s floor
branches that stretched to the clouds, wild bursting bud tips
how you dance with the wind when tempests roar
shelter, haven, legend of yore
chopped down so callously
to build a door
but I see
For Tanka Tuesday’s Ekphrastic Prompt Challenge - The Diatelle - PHEW! Took me a bit of time to make it work. Fantastic form!!!
The Diatelle is a fun, syllable counting form like the etheree with a twist. The syllable structure of the diatelle is as follows: 1/2/3/4/6/8/10/12/10/8/6/4/3/2/1, but unlike an etheree, has a set rhyme pattern of abbcbccaccbcbba.
