So begins a week of Dalit
This Filipino poetry
Each four lines of eight syllables
Yet none here with rhyming stanzas

  1. I have never heard of “Dalit” –
    and am fascinated by it.
    The description is inviting
    and I am anxious to try it!

    4 lines –
    8 syllables each –
    no rhyme –
    no particular theme required.
    Fun! ❤
