She falls through time

he’s everywhere

assumes a crime.

She’s gone to where

her heart finds home;

leaving  despair

he waits by stones

then moves along,

lost while she roams.

New life, new song

Heart home, the past

She learns she’s strong

her love slips from her grasp

tears her  in agony

The question must be asked

Is it him, or is it me?

For this is destiny

A journey through time

to find her love sublime.

Today’s prompt is to write a terzanelle: a cross between a villanelle and a terza rima.  I chose to write on Outlander, a little awkwardly! lol  But I only have half an hour to spare for this, so don’t be too demanding.  😉  The rhyme scheme is

fAFA or fFAA.

    nice loose terzanelle, the triplets and quatrain perfect. I’d love to have seen if you’d had the time to apply the repeating line rule also, but I totally know about time crunch. I can’t believe you got that poem out in 30 minutes! Brava!

  2. The woman roams, and the man is lost. This is amazingly on target.
