|Gingko Triptych in Stained Glass ~ Dawn Lee Thompson|
Today's challenge is to write a poem in three parts: each part separate from, yet dependent on the other two parts. You may select any form or style, from free verse to prose poetry - choose the form which best suits the vision of your final product, your work of art.
|Ignius Fatuus ~ Ariela Coco|
A while ago, I experimented by writing in three parts, both in free verse and prose poetry. Follow the hypertext, if you would like to read these examples.

This is not a picture prompt. The images you see here are offered as examples of the triptych form in art, craft and photography. If you feel inspired to write a piece based on one of them, please acknowledge the name of the artist.
Intriguing idea! I love your examples~ Off to play...with this idea! Thanks Kerry~
Great prompt idea. Took some thinking about, thank you.
I did love this one~it was a lot of fun.
Holy hell...that was a hard one. Keep em coming SA, and oh for the love of Mike...don't make them so easy would ya...lol.
Excellent prompt! Thank you! :)
I made a lame attempt using a photo!
I really did love this challenge and now really want to make this art form~ Thank you Kerry!
I was all set to work on this myself when an electric storm came up and seemingly hovered over the house for hours, forcing me off-line. (I've lost too many computers through lightning strikes.) I'll have to give it a go again tomorrow.
Definitely been there Kerry. I turn off the PC the minute I hear thunder. I love this prompt, and I have a poem that I've been working on that seemed to fit. I borrowed one of Ella's photos from her Sunday Challenge last month to illustrate it, as it was just perfect. Thanks, Ella, and thanks Kerry for this very cool prompt.
Very interesting challenge! The whole key for me was finding the link between the three parts, then it sort of fell into place. Looking forward to reading everyone else's offerings!
As ever, a glorious prompt, Kerry. I hope I've done it justice.
I'm late getting at this, after a busy, busy day. Too bad the busy day doesn't lend itself to poetry in three parts, so I'll probably post something tomorrow.
Very interesting idea, Kerry.
For some reason, this post isn't showing up on my blog feed. Hedge said it didn't for her either. We are still showing Susie's challenge from Tuesday as the newest post here.
The blog feed problem is my fault: I 'published' it by mistake on Tuesday, instead of hitting post options in order to schedule it for Weds. That's when it appeared on the blog feed. I quickly whipped it off and rescheduled but it will not appear twice as a new post.
My bad! I rely on the fact that people check in on RT daily ;)
Oops Mary, your link here leads back to Real Toads. Please relink, and I will remove the incorrect one :)
Somehow I missed this - have been tired, missed the boat. Love the challenge, Kerry, you do such wonderful challenges. Not sure if I am up to it, still exhausted, but sure enjoyed reading everyone's. Great work, kids!
Oh, yes, I was going to mention Mary's link, too.
And I did have trouble getting from one day's subject to the next, like some of the others. Got it last night, latish, and it woke me up during the night. LOL
Oh, how I loved this challenge! I wrote about something spring-ish, which we're now having here in NC with temps in the seventies and green growing things sprouting all over!
Man, did this challenge come just in time. I've been working on this iece for a month plus, but couldn't find a way to seal the deal.
love this prompt, Kerry... one I think I'll visit again
Great idea for a prompt. Has lots of possibilities, I think.
Finally linked up one ~
Thanks for the prompt and examples ~
