Trinet: Poetic Forms – Writer’s Digest

Well, after a week of looking at trilonnet, let’s discuss trinet, which looks similar but isn’t related in any distinguishable way. I found many examples and references to them online, and they were created by someone who goes by the name “Zion”.

Here are the instructions:

  • 7 lines
  • The third and fourth lines contain six words in each line
  • All other lines have two words on each line

Some poets choose to center the poem for visual impact. However, there are no other restrictions on rhymes, subject or syllables.
