Alankar(Decor)-259 - Poem by Indira Renganathan
The Trilonnet is a 14 line invented verse form that doesn't claim to be a sonnet.
Created by Shelley A Cephas who offers two options in meter and rhyme scheme.
The elements of the Trilonnet are:
a 14 line poem made up of 4 tercets followed by a rhymed couplet.
metered, iambic, either pentameter or tetrameter.
rhymed abc abc abc abc dd or abc cba abc cba dd.
(Tetrameter- abc cba abc cba dd)
When some angels came in my dream
With widened eyes I was surprised
Wished to see them in real sight
And I told an angel one night
'Come in real all well this wise'
He promised to bring the whole team
Awaiting the angelic team
Daily I stayed awake well poised
But only in vain every night
Upset by no angel's true sight
I gave up my wish agonised
Every night I slept with no dream
Yet one day my nap felt bit nudged
God! ! no dream, at last all converged
- - - - - - - - - - -
(Pentameter- abc abc abc abc dd)
When a team of angels came before me
I didn't believe it as truly true
Pinched myself to test if it was a dream
One angel came smiling to talk to me
Told, 'come, to heaven we are taking you'
'Yes', I set out, but lo, caught by a scream
I thought I would not be seen by any
But mom screamed'who're they? where they're taking you? '
'To heaven' I said.Mom's eyes were agleam
Upset more I backed out with a sorry
But mom went with them throwing a wry 'you'
Missing mom was wanted in next day's scream
'How would people believe me and this news'
'Pray mom returns to tell about her cruise'
