“Daveda’s Dix-Par-Deux”  is a new style of poetry I invented on 03/04/08 …the style consists of 2 rhyming couplets of 10 syllables making up each line …then a line of 2 syllables (the 2 syllable lines must sum up the 2 couplets they follow) …2 more 10 syllable couplets and another line of 2 syllables …you can do as many as you wish!

Love to Share (Daveda’s Dix-Par-Deux)

Surviving this life is not always kind.

Look up to heaven and open your mind.


My friends, just try, this is not hard to do.

Know in your heart; He’s always there for you.




It’s not difficult to find the right road.

A place awaits you to put down the load.


God picks up what is too heavy to bear.

Lighten your fear He understands despair.




He has much love to share with all of us;

to those who believe his way; He will bless.


If you look you will find what is waiting;

love for the son of God is elating.

“Daveda’s Hybrid Cascade”

Cascade: a poem with an eight syllable count. The first stanza repeats itself as the ending line on each of the following stanzas. There is no rhyme required, but I have added rhyme to make it a Daveda Hybrib Cascade.

 Raging Fire



Tranquility is my desire;

Cannot exist with raging fire.

How many times must I forgive?

With constant fears how can I live?

Essential for this heart is love.

I request from you, Lord above.

Quiet and peace I do require;

tranquility is my desire.


It gets more difficult with time,

as I’m no longer in my prime.

I need your guidance to inspire;

cannot exist with raging fire.


Please help me Lord; to understand.

I am desperate; hold my hand.

The time past, is not to relive.

How many times must I forgive?


This weary heart has suffered pain.

More anguish will drive me insane.

There is much love I long to give,

with constant fears how can I live?

Never straying far.

Riding with me in my car;

Tiny teacup star.
