Dalit II (eloquence)

Though dawn has yet to break a thought
surfaces and must be spoken
Repeated here lest I forget
and squander this moment again


As a poet I’ve a keen interest in differing poetic form and syntax from around the world. From the Philippines then comes ‘Dalit’ – four non-rhyming lines of eight syllables , 32 in total. Jemverse features four examples yesterday, today and for the next two.

    wet feet
    the soul
    waiting there

    Dalit II – Eloquence

    Without moving her lips or mouth
    She communicated her thoughts
    He saw, he heard, he understood
    Best to avoid that raw subject
