Darkness clouding my mind
Deep in a valley of fog
Trees meeting in the moonlight

Light shining from the moonlight
The thickness of the damp fog
Throwing shadows in my mind

Blocking vision, was the fog
No longer sight, no moonlight
Slowing closing down my mind

Mind closed no fog or moonlight.

My words for this poem are Mind – Fog – Moonlight – seven syllables per line.

Tritina is:
Three tercets followed by a monostich.
There is no set rhythm or line length, but the lines should pretty much be isosyllabic (all have the same number of syllables).
Instead of rhyme, the tercets end with lexical repetition—three words that are repeated in each stanza in varying order. All three words also appear in the last line
The word order is: 1-2-3, 3-1-2, 2-3-1, (1-2-3)
