She falls through time
assumes a crime.
She’s gone to where
her heart finds home;
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 NaPoWriMo.net 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!
The woman roams, and the man is lost. This is amazingly on target.
You really have nice blog, keep it up.
Why thank you! That’s kind of you to say. I intend to keep at it!
Beautiful! Love those books! 🙂
Are you watching the series?
It’s been fun following it from inception, through casting, and now production through Diana’s eyes.
Yes, and I love it!
I was driving Diana from the airport to our writing conference last year, and we were stopped for 20 minutes by a paving crew. I turned off the engine and asked her about her cameo. 🙂 Lots of giggling ensued. It was probably the only time in my life I was happy to be held up by a flag person! 🙂 Every time I drive by that patch of road, I grin.
What a thrill! I’m jealous! 🙂
lol. It’s not much, but it’s all I’ve got! 😉
Sounds pretty good to me! 🙂
