A dose of fetish. Good friends. An incomparable muse.
Hello Folks … this is Paloma with the latest issue of B&P’s Shadorma & Beyond.
For this week I’d like to introduced the Song That Luc Bat.
This is a Vietnamese form that means “double seven, six, eight”. Each four-line stanza begins with a rhyming seven-syllable couplet. This is followed by a six-syllable line and an eight-syllable line. To link multiple stanzas, make the next stanza’s seven-syllable couplet rhyme with the eight-syllable line from the previous stanza. Some people add an additional seven-syllable rhyming couplet to the end of the poem and call it a “song that luc bat sonnet” (although it isn’t a traditional sonnet).
E (8) […and so on…]
Traveler with lichen bark
crosses time through artist’s spark.
Though mind and tree have passed,
we three speak: Artist, Tree, and Me.
Artist sighs and bends his knee
underneath this weathered king.
Ancient Monarch, chanting,
demands the same from awestruck Me.
Of course, you may also write a shadorma (a non-rhyming six-line poem in 3/5/3/3/7/5 syllables).
Once you’ve written your Song That Luc Bac or Shadorma please tag your post: Mindlovesmisery Menagerie and B&P Shadorma and Beyond then add your link to the Mr. Linky App below.
Have yourself a great week!
