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 Tripadi is:
  • stanzaic, almost always in tercets. A poem can have any number of tercets.
  • syllabic, 8-8-10 syllables per line and sometimes 6-6-8 syllables per line.
  • 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.
