Apiphobia (A Trigee) - Poem by Dawn Slanker

For those unfamiliar with the 'trigee' form...you read the left half, then the right half, then follow the dots read the two halves together as a whole. It's 3 poems in one. The trick is that each of the 3 parts should be able to stand alone as a poem.

The Trigee form was created by TD Euwaite, founder of poetsofmars.com


wicked wing*ed creatures..............evil stingers flit and race,
dartin' through the veggie patch.....they quickly set a rapid pace
they target tender features..............while buzzin' 'round my fearful face
'cause I am an easy catch...............they tease and then begin the chase

    Enjoyed this form of poetry, although I just came here from your trigee Free Choice which is even more clever! (Or cleaver, as PT D might say) . (Report)Reply

    I've not seen this type of poetry before, but I enjoyed reading it. Very creative and unconventional. I may give this Trigee a try myself- thanks for sharing!
