Lake vs. Beach

Written for:  Go Dog Go Cafe - Donna Matthews triolet form challenge

 Triolet Poetry

8-line poem
Eight syllables each line

The rhyme pattern looks like this: ABaAabAB – A and B are refrains


Lakes are calm and fun to swim in
but there's no setting like a beach –
crashing waves and seagull's harsh din.
Lakes are calm and fun to swim in.
Beaches fill my heart to the brim.
Let's write our names in sand, side by each.
Lakes are calm and fun to swim in
but there's no setting like a beach.

I am a freelance poet, born and bred in Brooklyn, New York. I live with my husband, John, and two charming rescue dogs–Marion Miller and Murphy. We spent eight lovely years in Portland, OR, but are now back in New York. My goal is to create and share poetry with others who write, or simply enjoy reading poetry. I hope to touch a nerve in you, and feel your sparks as well.
