A New Life ( poetry challenge – Trinet )

Poetry challenge: Trinet poem.


The Trinet, created by zion, is a form with these specifications:

Line 1 – 2 words

Line 2 – 2 words

Line 3 – 6 words
Line 4 – 6 words
Line 5 – 2 words
Line 6 – 2 words
Line 7 – 2 words

Repeat this pattern 2 more times, if centered correctly it looks like three crosses

Here is my effort at a trinet , hope you like it :

A new life

Heart beats

Tear drops

The first signs of new  life

Smiles of happiness in the room

Mother’s treasure

Father’s pride

Giggles galore

Innocent charm

Bright eyes

A mind oblivious to evils around

The true meaning of unconditional love

Sleepless nights

Wet nappies

Parenthood begins

Daytime slumber

Playful nights

A  test of patience and endurance

The reward of a toothless babble

Little sacrifice

Unending joy

Eternal bliss
