Autumn - Dreams : Ya Du

Colourful bliss,
nature’s kiss, of
love is this to,
smother hues on,
our hearts when its all gone.
                                                                                                                     
Dreams of autumn,
now forgotten, as
soft cotton fibers,
woven spider web,
autumn dreams to far ebb.




Ya Du (Burmese Poetry Form)  : 4 syllable lines and a fifth of 5, 7, 9,or 11 syllables. The staircase rule applies to the four lines, and the last syllable of the fourth and fifth line must rhyme.There should be reference to the seasons since the word yadu means "the seasons”.

  1. The form is greatly interesting Vandana and you've woven magic into it...colors fading in hearts truly resonate with autumn's dream coming to an end...

  6. Yes, autumn has become a dream-gone-by...colors definitely grays and browns now and it's hard to remember the colors.
