Story a day: 2.9.16

Prompt: Today’s form is terza rima.

“A poem in which each stanza is rhymed aba, with the inner rhyme from one stanza providing the outer rhymes for either the previous or subsequent stanza: aba bcb cdc… or aba cac dcd…. The form can end in a single-line stanza, a couplet, or by referring back to the as-yet-unused rhyme from the first stanza.”

Sunlight on the water
Like gold veins in the rock
Little else still matters

Nature makes a mock
of quarterly concerns,
paperwork and empty talk

Upon the rock we learn
In mountains we reside
In the sun we burn

Thusly we abide
The metal world outside
