Day 23: Tri, tri, triolet!

This is my first time writing a triolet and it was a bit of a challenge. I’m pretty sure I rewrote it four times until I was content with it. Here’s my attempt for NaPoWriMo:

We dance… in fields… of fireflies…

alone – away from strangers, noise –

our bodies sway… we touch the skies…

We, dance in fields of fireflies,

because of strangers’ nervous eyes.

We move and groove, they’re stiff with poise.

We dance. In fields. Of fireflies.

Alone. Away from strangers. Noise.
