like waves upon the beach – triolet for dVerse

the summer blooms within your speech
like wings of butterflies caress
your laughter calls and love beseech
the summer blooms within your speech
we are like waves upon the beach
the summer blooms within your speech
like wings of butterflies caress

Tonight at 3PM EST it’s open-link Night at dVerse. I felt like writing a love poem after finding that wonderful picture. And a triolet was what I felt like this February night.

  1. What an exquisite painting! It made me pause when I saw it and reminded me of Japanese paintings. I always enjoy your triolets, Björn, and this one is no exception. It is a beautiful complement to the picture.

  2. the summer blooms within your speech…. i wished we would always talk like this… a wonderful pic – love how you captured its weightlessness… a beautiful love poem

  3. I love the refrain – like wings of butterflies caress ~ Love the theme & triolet ~ (please check your link in Mr Linky as its different)

  4. Back to a classic triolet, and it soars & sings & illuminates the painting. It belongs in a gilded frame hanging beneath the wonderful painting; surely the artist would agree; you are ever the hopeful romantic.

  5. i like to think there is star inside a voice..sometimes shining ..some times..waiting..to escape..

    But moreover..that shining light..

    is brighter than ever…
    when folks..
    are
    not
    quite..and shining bright..along with
    light..and sound..in brilliant hues of
    life.

  6. I like the image of the summer blooming in your speech. We have been besieged by winter storms, and I had the chainsaw out yesterday to try and “unlandscape” the front lawn….

  7. Daintily Lyrical – I can hear you saying this in my head, Bjorn – it carries your distinctive musicality…

  8. I love triolets and you’ve penned a nice one. With remnants of snow still on the ground here the thought of someone whose voice could conjure up summer was wonderful to read. Peace, Linda

  9. Nice musical poem, and …I immediately composed the melody…imagine skipping – rhythm, melody – eee | ^ cc bb a eee | ^ aa gg f ddd | ^ bb aa g ddd| ^ gg ff e eee|….~ etc.

  10. a triolet in darkest februari, what could be nicer.
    I shall now have to search out the shape of the triolet and try one for myself.

  11. Loved it – and the picture. Like hanna said, gotta figure out the form. That’s one of my goals for the year – more poetry forms. Thanks for the link.
    I got my drink at the bar and am just wandering around the pub. Hope to run into you. Would save me the trip across the Atlantic…

  12. That picture is enchanting. My first reaction was that it was of a face, the butterfly forming the nose. Your triolet is beautiful and dreams of summer.
