Resistance

©Lyn Crain


My mountain of defined definition
Clamoring to resist all boundaries
I proudly declare freedom, my mission
My mountain of defined definition
I cannot resist, it’s my volition
To deny any cast form, no foundries
My mountain of defined definition
Clamoring to resist all boundaries

I chose to answer in a triolet. Triolet is a poetic form consisting of only 8 lines. Within a Triolet, the 1st, 4th, and 7th lines repeat, and the 2nd and 8th lines do as well. The rhyme scheme is simple: ABaAabAB, capital letters representing the repeated lines. Make writing a Triolet more challenging! Make each line 8 syllables in length (4 metrical feet), written in iambic tetrameter (the more common way), or try it in pentameter (English version) where each line only has 10 syllables (5 metrical feet).

10 syllabic measure pentameter
