Yearn: A Ya-Du
©2016 Rosemawrites@A Reading Writer
Chill starts the year
winter’s here to
comfort your heart,
freeze the pieces torn apart.
Let cold build back
your heart’s track to
attract and feel
it’s once hot fire
ready for spring’s fresh desire.

In response to Blogging from A to Z Challenge: Y is for Ya-Du
The Ya-Du is:
- syllabic. L1-L4 tetrasyllabic (4) and L5 may be 5,7, 9, or 11 syllables. 4-4-4-4-(5,7,9, or 11)
- stanzaic, written in no more than 3 cinquains.
- rhymed. The form employs a climbing rhyme in which the 4th syllable of L1 rhymes with the 3rd syllable of L2 and the 2nd syllable of L3. L4 and L5 end rhyme.
- dedicated to the seasons and the emotions they evoke.
