Written for:  Poetic Bloomings2 – InForm – “Pathya Vat” 

The Pathya Vat is a Cambodian verse form.

It consists of a quatrain (four lines) of four syllables each line.

Lines two and three rhyme.

When a poem consists of more than one stanza, the last line of the previous stanza rhymes with the second and third lines of the following one

take me away
let me forget
tremendous debt
I leave behind

all that baggage
I felt inclined
to keep me blind
to who I am

About purplepeninportland

I am a freelance poet, born and bred in Brooklyn, New York. I live with my husband, John, and two charming rescue dogs–Marion Miller and Murphy. We spent eight lovely years in Portland, OR, but are now back in New York. My goal is to create and share poetry with others who write, or simply enjoy reading poetry. I hope to touch a nerve in you, and feel your sparks as well.
