Giggling Innocence: A San San*
Your sweet giggling innocence
screams, awakes asleep mem’ry.
Mind’s screaming silence now ends
as I hear soothing cadence,
your voice soothes chained spirit free.
Screaming silence now giggles,
your giggling innocence sends
soothing cadence that tickles.

Today’s prompt comes to us from TJ Kearney, who invites us to try a eight-line poem called a san san, which means “three three” in Chinese (It’s also a term of art in the game Go).
The san san has some things in common with the tritina, including repetition and rhyme. In particular, the san san repeats, three times, each of three terms or images. The eight lines rhyme in the pattern a-b-c-a-b-d-c-d.
I repeat giggle, soothe and scream. 🙂
