I See You As You Drift

Cascade, a form created by Udit Bhatia, is all about receptiveness, but in a smooth cascading way like a waterfall. The poem does not have any rhyme scheme; therefore, the layout is simple. Say the first verse has three lines. Line one of verse one becomes the last line of verse two. To follow in suit, the second line of verse one becomes the last line of verse three. The third line of verse one now becomes the last line of verse four, the last stanza of the poem. See the structure example below:

a/b/c, d/e/A, f/g/B, h/i/C

I see you as you drift
In the light of the mist
If only the lake talks

The secret behind this
So I can be a part
I see you as you drift

I want to share with you
To be part of your world
In the light of the mist

And as you float away
Birds sing, trees sway, lake glides
If only the lake talks
