Wildflowers – Tilus

We are challenged to write a form of micro poetry called Tilus in the most current episode of Carpe Diem’s Little Ones.

Created by Kelvin SM, the Tilus [tee-loo-hz], is divided into two parts.

The first part:
two lines following a 6-3 syllable count

The second part:
a one-syllable word to complete the subject layered in the first part.

Total syllable count
only 10 syllables

  1. This is a beautiful Tilus … as I discovered this micropoetry I was immediately in love with it and tried it of course. As I read all the responses on this Little Ones episode than I see that haiku-poets are very well Tilus-poets too … Maybe that’s because haiku and Tilus are almost family of each other, counting syllables and nature as the theme …
