Today to try writing Dalit:
Four-line Filipino poem –
Depends how you pronounce your words!

Each line has eight syllables.

His smile is so captivating.
He exudes love in his long life.
Look deeply into his sweet eyes –
Let his wonderful smile melt you.

Try it!

    I’m not a poet but here’s my attempt:
    Your face glows like red roses.
    That sit on a red runner.
    They match your lips and red shirt.
    Lifts spirits and warms my heart. 🥰🌹

    • There must be a name for the four-line verse that has seven syllables on each line. I think it’s a “septet” or something like that. Your verse is beautiful, dear {{{Laina}}}. You ARE a poet!

    Big Montana Sky blesses us
    With friendly folks always around

    Ranching life bringing home the joy
