Trios & Tripartites

Working in 3s:

In the trio of collage-poems below, background color choice (red, green, blue) informs image/word content.

When organizing poetry into a series or larger manuscript, I often write in tripartites: maybe 3 short lyric poems or 3 sections of a longer poem.

Thinking in 3s also helps to structure a necklace series providing parameters, limitations & boundaries, i.e. taming creative chaos! 3 Jade Fish (below) are available @ Etsy | ZygosDesign.
