Wordless: A Wayra
©2016 Rosemawrites@A Reading Writer
An abandoned child,
a penniless new wallet,
bright eyes who sees but not read,
a long meaningless speech
those’re what I’ll be, without words.

In response to Blogging from A to Z Challenge: W is for Wayra
The Wayra (Quechua – wind ) is a popular verse form of Peru and Bolivia. It appears it originated in an indigenous Quechua language but has found its way into Spanish literature. It is a short syllabic verse form found at Vole Central and some other sites around the internet.
The Wayra is:
- a pentastich, a poem in 5 lines.
- syllabic, 5-7-7-6-8
