The Trinet form was created by Zion. The following structure should be repeated 3 times, if centered it results in a poem that looks like three crosses. This style does not have a specified rhyme scheme and thus can be rhymed or unrhymed.
Line 1: 2 words
Line 2: 2 words
Line 3: 6 words
Line 4: 6 words
Line 5: 2 words
Line 6: 2 words

What I Like
I found this form through Shadow Poetry and thought it looked cool, so I decided to try it. I like the visual aspect of the finished poem and the structure is fairly simple to follow. Since the poem resembles crosses, I tend to choose faith or hope based themes for these. Personally, I think it would be weird to write a Trinet on getting wasted or some such topic...
A Few Tips
Two word lines back to back can seem broken and fractured if you aren't careful. If you want more fluidity, I suggest thinking of the two word lines collectively instead of separately.
Trouble Comes (November 3, 2014)
After my sins manifest in light
Unaltered by dark shadows of night
Of wrong bubbling and boiling over
Burning everything in its short path
Of troubled times is the door
To perfection that existed once before--
