Frozen Hunter: A Trilinea*
You’re a wild rose,
hungry hollow heart has hunted,
until it froze.

The Trilinea, one more haiku copycat from Berg‘s Pathways for a Poet, created by Nellie Amos. It seems a bit superficial to me since the defining feature is the word “rose” must appear somewhere in the 3 lines.
The Trilinea is:
- a tristich, a poem in 3 lines.
- syllabic, with syllable count per line, 4-8-4.
- rhymed, L1 and L3 rhyme.
- composed to include the word “rose”.
