White: A Wayra

They say we’re yin yang.
I had a white, pristine life,
while yours is the blackest black.
But then what are colors,
when it comes to world of love?

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
  • unrhymed.

  1. You pose an interesting questions. Perhaps, live is the many changes or shades of grey between black and white or maybe love is like Dorothy living in Kansas in black and white, and waking up in technicolor in the land of the munchkins. Nice work!

  2. All I can think about is a caramel-colored cup of coffee? 😝 Those coffee beans are roasted so perfectly. Yes, what are colors in a world of love when love is a spectrum. Lovely poem dear!!!
