I quote from the prompt at dVerse Meeting the Bar:

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.

Uncountable species

Flora and fauna in




The best day of the year
for sunshine

    A triplet of Tilus; joyous, earthy, sensuous, calming; enjoyed our jaunt, and Tilus 1 grabbed my mind.

    ha. glad you got to enjoy the sun…been sprinkling here all day
    and supposed to really pour tonight…like 4 inches of rain
    there is something pretty amazing
    to the abundance of differences in the animals as well
