The Ya-Du Poetry Writing Project explores a five-line Burmese poetic form.  Ya-Du poetry uses a climbing rhyming and irregular syllabic structure.  Unusual and rarely seen in the west, the unique form of this poetry presents a special challenge to poets, though the poetry that results is often beautiful and graceful.

All members and authors are invited to participate in this Writing Project.  If you think you would like to take part, please click on the "Participate" link in the banner above, where you will find the rules related to this Writing Project, links to information about ya-du poetry to help you understand this poetic form, and the submission form you are required to use when submitting your ya-du to The Authors Haunt.
