thơ bốn chữ: Life & Light


I have not lived
A year now gone
Living a normal life
Time spent in dreams


I absorb the light
I expel a shadow
I slow at night
I want to glow

The elements of the thơ bốn chữ (Four Word Verse) are:
Stanzaic, written in couplets, each line has 4 words.
Rhymed or unrhymed, with tonal inflection.

Weekly Theme:
Vietnamese Poetry Forms

(Vietnamese poetry is mostly tonal, something that cannot be replicated in English. I apologise for this shortcoming.)
