A Prayer

Today I am combining memes and joining Real Toad’s challenge from Saturday challenge to write a tritina.  They define it as:

It is a ten-line poem with three tercets and a final line, featuring three repeating, non-rhyming line-end words, like this:
The final line contains all 3 words as 1-2-3
I am also sharing with the Tuesday Platform since I’m so late.
Finally, I’m linking to d’Verse Poets where the Tuesday Challenge is to find beauty in ugliness.


petaled head bowed in prayer
once brilliant colors now muted
flower sings a silent song in death

nature’s beauty not lost to death
a flower’s promise my prayer
internal beauty never muted

the years pass; the heart muted
the soul resists a bodily death
goddess answers my prayer

prayer’s promise never muted by death

  1. Lovely combination of prompts. I especially like the message in this line…”internal beauty never muted”. Thanks for joining in with the prompt.

  2. Yes, I’ve been encountering problems with comments and this explains it. Blogger and WordPress are estranged cousins!! You skill in this rhyme is impressive. For me, restrictions in format have a stultifying effect, and I admire others who master them so well.
