The First Time I Saw…. Trifextra Challenge

A Love Poem to My Husband

A Love Poem to My Husband

The First Time I Saw…

Tilt of your smile,

Black of your hair,

Lilt of your walk,

Depth of your stare–

Heat filled me up

All else a blur

But this I knew:

You are him. I’m her.

 

A response to:

This week’s Trifextra challenge.  This week we are asking you to count syllables.  And words.  It’s a lot of math for those of us who might be more accustomed to dealing with words, but we’re confident you can pull it off.
We are asking for a 33-word response to the following snippet:

The first time I saw. . .

Here’s the catch: all of your 33 words must be one syllable each.  We’re going low-brow on your this week.  Or not.  Can you class it up under these restrictions?  Give us your best.

To clarify, we are giving you 5 words.  We want another 33 from you, for a grand total of 38. – See more at: http://www.trifectawritingchallenge.com/#sthash.MiIYUtYF.dpuf

  1. The rhyming structure adds to the cadence of the poem but, more than that, the message it conveys is powerfully life-affirming and beautiful. Well done and, congratulations on finding Love. :)
