Tri-fall
I found the Tri-fall form at Shadow Poetry http://www.shadowpoetry.com/resources/wip/types.html

The Tri-fall form, a creation of Jan Turner, has three 6-line stanzas. Each stanza follows a specific line-syllable count of 6/3/8/6/3/8 and a rhyme scheme of abcabc. By directions of the form's creator, very little puncutation is required.

Here is my attempt at a Tri-fall poem:



dancing at the wellsprings
by Larry Powers


can you dance when the days
are dismal
and darkness hovers over Earth
when somber music plays
temporal
and alters the giving of birth?

can you write in the sky…
rearrange
the stars or chit-chat with the moon…
hear the wind’s bidding cry
or seek change
when songbirds whisper a new tune?

can you sprout healing wings
close your ears
to hate-filled words that sting and char…
hear the splash of wellsprings
calm your fears
and gain strength by touching the scar?
