Thursday Photo Prompt – Cracked Ice #writephoto


passing by the cracked ice on sea
sun sets on this blue world
sailing on the water bleakly
climate change, what we hurled
what have we done, everything’s changed
the whole thing appears misarranged
what have we done?
what have we done?
like a couple being estranged

passing by the cracked ice on sea
on my own with my boat
don’t know why you left me, I’m free
and I’m keeping afloat
what have I done, you can’t forgive?
have to put into perspective
what have I done?
what have I done?
harsh destiny I have to live

passing by the cracked ice on sea
as all my years unfold
I have been through life adversely
different phases being scrolled
what must I do, to be content?
with my sins I start to repent
what must I do?
What must I do?
adjust my life how it was meant*

* The Trijan Refrain, created by Jan Turner, consists of three 9-line stanzas, for a total of 27 lines. Line 1 is the same in all three stanzas, although a variation of the form is not to repeat the same line at the beginning of each stanza. In other words, the beginning line of each stanza can be different. The first four syllables of line 5 in each stanza are repeated as the double-refrain for lines 7 and 8. The Trijan Refrain is a rhyming poem with a set meter and rhyme scheme as follows:

Rhyme scheme: a/b/a/b/c/c/d,d refrain of first 4 words of line five /c

Meter: 8/6/8/6/8/8/4,4 refrain/8
