      Blogs   05/01/2017

      Blogs are now accessible to Guests. Guests may read and reply to blog entries. We'll see how this works out. If Guest participation becomes troublesome, I'll disable Guest access. Members are encouraged to make use of the PMO Members' Promotional Blog to promote their published works. Simply add your latest entry to the blog. Include relevant information (your name or screen name, poem title, periodical name, hyperlink to the site where published, etc). If you have a lot of them and feel you need your own blog, let me know, and I will try to accommodate you. Members are encouraged to continue also posting their promotional topics in the Promotions forum on the board itself which is better suited for archiving promotions.

Tripadi in the Bengali Region is considered one line in three parts even though it is almost always written in three lines. So I guess you might say, each tercet is simply a full sentence in 26 or 20 syllables broken into lines.

The elements of the Tripadi are:

  1. stanzaic, almost always in tercets. A poem can have any number of tercets.
  2. syllabic, 8-8-10 syllables per line and sometimes 6-6-8 syllables per line.
  3. rhymed, aax bbx

    Surprise by Judi Van Gorder

    white flakes drift onto spring blossoms,
    disrupts the play of two curious possums,
    the surprise snow supplies a new delight.
