Day Seven . . . we end the first week of National Poetry Month, almost 1/4 of the month gone, but 3/4+ yet to go!
Robert Lee Brewer's PAD prompt: "Take the phrase 'Urban (blank),' replace the blank with a word or phrase, make the new phrase the title of your poem, and then, write your poem. Possible titles include: 'Urban Cowboy,' 'Urban Warfare,' 'Urban Daydreams,' 'Urban Living,' and so on."
Maureen Thorson's NaPoWriMo prompt challenges us today to "write a tritina. The tritina is a shorter cousin to the sestina, involving three, three-line stanzas, and a final concluding line. Three “end words” are used to conclude the lines of each stanza, in a set pattern of ABC, CAB, BCA, and all three end words appear together in the final line." Maureen gives a sample tritina also.
Okay, here we go. Urban tritina #1.
