The Rain~Song That Luc Bat


Dollar Photo Club

With you amidst the flowers

Filled with spiritual powers

The rain falling softly

Upon our moments together


Cover me in pink heather

In memory of that weather

That day among many

Those sacred moments of our love

Paloma introduces the Vietnamese Song That Luc Bat to us this week at B&P Shadorma and Beyond. Here’s the pattern:

“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).

I have been writing all my life but for the most part, it has been a secret. My parents did not believe writing was a good way to earn money so I hid my poems. Then one day, I wanted to comment on an essay that a friend had written and found myself with a blog. That quiet whisper inside said, "You can write your poetry and no one will ever know.". I knew nothing of followers and the like at that time. So, here I am trying to learn my craft and enjoying every moment of it. My personal details are, I'm 57, married for 39 years, have one grown son who is God's gift to us and last but not least at all, I'm a Baha'i which basically means that I love all humanity.
