Trois-par-Huit
I was researching another form when I ran into this one. The Trois-par-Huit was developed by Lorraine M. Kanter. It is in a way an adaption of the French Huitain, but do not underestimate the form - it is more difficult than it looks at first sight.

The guidelines for this form:

*Gift2*The poem contains out of three stanzas.
         *Gift3* Two combinations are possible:3/3/2 lines and 3/2/3 lines according to the guidelines found.
*Gift2*The poem has eight lines in total
*Gift2*The poem has a rhyme scheme
         *Gift3* A/A/B/B/B/C/C/C No matter how the stanzas are divided, the rhyme scheme stays the same.
*Gift2*The poem has a syllable count
         *Gift3* 3,6,9,12,12,9,6,3 syllables.
*Gift2*The last line summarizes the meaning of the poem.
*Gift2*The poem needs to be centered!!!


My example:

Emptiness of the soul

Brain breakers
think! puzzled; mind shakers
there must be a key; it's hard to find

to solve this tough puzzle and satisfy my mind
word for word, layers of hidden rhymes I unwind.

Gone is the magic, like a black hole
my brain needs a new goal...
Soothe my soul!
