A day in spring – Tilus for dVerse

‘Tilus’ in d’Verse …

Björn Rudbergs writings


spring’s giggling rivulets
are born in



among all the tadpoles
one became



hesitating breaking buds
leaves born in



skin-prison left behind
growing snake



Today in dVerse we are writing Tilus:

Tilus [tee-loo-hz] is a form created by Kelvin S.M. and falls under the category of micro poetry. The form is divided into two parts: the first part is composed of two lines following a 6-3 syllable count; the second part, a one-syllable word to close and/or complete the subject layered in the first part. The whole piece must, only, contain 10 in overall syllable count. The main focus of Tilus is on the world of Nature, and how it can open a new door to a wider understanding of life and beyond. The form aims to be epic in emotions expressed, more importantly, than to be epic in words.

  1. This is a lovely form, I also discovered it, like Bjorne from dVerse…I’ve added it to my shadorma prompt this weekend as a separator or ending for the londer shadorma. I love these examples they are very good! Do you intend on adding them to the little ones?
