#TheWombwellRainbow #PoeticFormsChallenge. It is weekly. Week Twenty-three form is a Bengali form a #Tripadi. I will post the challenge to create a first draft of a poetic form by the following late Sunday. Please email your first draft to me, including an updated short, third person bio and a short prose piece about the challenges you faced and how you overcame them. Except when I’m working at the supermarket I am always ready to help those that get stuck. I will blog my progress throughout the week. Hopefully it may help the stumped. Also below please find links to helpful websites.

A Bengali poetic form.


Tercets (or three-line stanzas).
Lines one and two end rhyme with each other.
Lines one and two have eight syllables.
Line three has ten syllables.

Poem may consist of one tercet or many.

An alternate version of the tripadi has the same rules as above with the exception of the syllables per line. Lines one and two have six syllables and line three has eight syllables.

I am indebted to Writer’s. Digest for this information
