Frozen Hunter

Frozen Hunter: A Trilinea*

You’re a wild rose,
hungry hollow heart has hunted,
until it froze.

Today’s prompt is The Heart is a Lonely Hunter by Carson McCullers.

The Heart is a Lonely Hunter


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”.
  • titled.
