'Neath Starry Sky

by Barb Hensongispsaca

Triolet Contest Winner 
She tracks by night 'neath starry sky
while stalking prey so silently.
Though leaves no print, no sound, no cry,
she tracks by night 'neath starry sky.
When she attacks you hear her cry...
A scream that brings you to your knees.
She tracks by night 'neath starry sky
while tracking prey so silently.

Example #1:
My Heart Residing in Thy Chest

In response to Shelly's, "The Indian Serenade".

For, break it shall and so it must
My heart residing in thy chest
When placed in care of lover's trust
For, break it shall and so it must
Passion's ashes returned to dust
This lonely heart is laid to rest
For, break it shall and so it must
My heart residing in thy chest

Example #2:
In Mourning Black

In response to "All in Green" by e.e. cummings

Fair maid, clad all in mourning black
Rides off upon her golden steed.
A mocking gesture: heart she lack'd.
Fair maid, clad all in mourning black,
Sheds not a tear and turns her back
With no regrets for wicked deeds.
Fair maid, clad all in mourning black,
Rides off upon her golden steed.

Example #3:
Mourning Twilight

In response triolet to James Joyce "She Weeps Over Rahoon"

Embrace twilight and bid farewell
to passion's warmth and sweet caress.
A grave's prepared where she will dwell
embrace twilight and bid farewell.
O hear the mourning of her bell
that tolls for sorrows you supress
embrace twilight and bid farewell
to passion's warmth and sweet caress.

Example #4:
The Stars Will Shine

Don?t hold your breath, the stars will shine.
Make your wishes, and close your eyes;
Tonight?s bright view will be divine.
Don?t hold your breath, the stars will shine
And wink with the planets of nine
While starships zip through the night skies.
Don?t hold your breath, the stars will shine.
Make your wishes, and close your eyes. .
