Than Bauk: (from Cambodia)

Three lines, four syllables each. And the fourth, third and second syllables respectively all rhyme. It's even shorter than a haiku, but a lot more structured. Traditionally, than-bauks are supposed to be witty and epigrammatic. Than Bauk may be linked together, so as to form longer, more complex, poetry.

I learned about this form on another site and wrote two, they were written awhile back, but the form was an interesting challenge and I thought I'd share.



Love Note

In your eyes I
see  a  sigh,  our
shared why,  and smile.






Epitaph read  
Upon Headstone:
"She, Fed-Up...  Fled!"

I was
in no mood
to deal with
either love
or death
both were dying
until I read
your smile

I've never read any quite like this and I need to say that you did an exceptional pen for yourself, Micha. I enjoy your heart, wisdom and creativity. You've blossomed in wonderful ways. I am so very proud of you.
