Rondel is a French style of lyrical poetry that is made up of two quatrains followed by a quintet totaling 13 lines (4 - 4 - 5) .
It has the Rhyme Scheme of ABba, abAB, abbaA where the capital letters are the refrains or repeats meaning that all 'A' are identical (All "B's are identical too)
The meter is open, but typically has eight syllables.
There are several variations of the rondel, and some inconsistencies like sometimes repeating the second refrain at the end of the last stanza (making it 14 lines) turns your Rondel into a Rondel Prime or “French Sonnet”.
It is often written in iambic tetrameter meaning that there are four feet in the line
Japanese people have wonderful taste for arts and crafts.The Haiku which we refer in poetry too was first invented by the Basho, a great Japanese poet.Similarly many arts and crafts like Bonsai cultivation , Martial arts, Origami ,Tea cermony and Ukiyo-e are few wonderful art inventions which are admirable and wonderful to learn from them.
Japanese practice an art form called Bonsai cultivation which means they cultivate miniature trees that are grown in containers.They focus on long-term cultivation and shaping of one or more small trees in a single container using techniques like pruning, root reduction, potting, defoliation, and grafting to produce small trees that mimic the shape and style of mature, full-sized trees.
Poetry , mimics Tree
Inflicts Bonsai Resemblance
I am happy to write poetry (unpublished other than what is here) about the Japanese arts and cultures and submit them to Help Japan With Poetry.Those of you who are interested can submit your creative stuffs by clicking the above link.
Warrior , he is the One Wandering around the army field Wringing their withers out Watching over 24 hrs a day Wondrous defender of the country Walking over the challenges thrown to them Wisely through his dedicated body and soul Where he stood on the border feeling Worthy of guarding his love at home Worship , his love .....

Join my MEMEand be a part of Exploring Poetry This week : SHAPE POEMS
Shape Poems are an unusual form of poetry that describes an object and is written in the recognizable shape of the object ranging from as simple as an apple to more complex form as human form.I have done few interesting shape poetry (other than what I have blogged in my blog-book) on myKindle publication Edition 1(you can see it above).
There are two types of shape poetry namely
1.Twisted Shape Poetry :
These poems are easier to write and will be ideal for children's to have fun with it.They are written using words that are twisted around the shape to make a desired form.
2.True Shape Poetry :
This type of poetry is much more challenging than the above.Here,the poet uses the poem's differing line lengths to create the desired shape.The main focus being that the words are arranged to bring visual effects to the poems.They are different form conventional or traditional poetry yet a fun way to challenge yourself.
I love Shape Poems .You love them too ? Wanna try them now .After do write one , Link your shape poem "url" either in add link or in the comments below and " Grab your Trophy".The winner will be selected randomly and will be announced publicly.
They still create side-effects very slowly and steadily
Known to the humans late , occasionally alarming croons
To bring strong effects just to extinguish the life fully
Mobile phones ,a boon in communication technology
Clogs the communication between the nerves of human mind
That this waves is already disturbing the Ecology
Extinguishing tweeting sparrows,one of the bird kind
Beware!The stress will find a way out to release its tension
Today the earthquake,tomorrow many more to witness
For every action there is an equal and opposite reaction
Let them not happen, awake before they create any mess
Anything in over-excess is sure to dump the Earth
So use inventions just right to neutralise the Nature
Saving like an ant , guarding us from any dearth
Like saving water and saving energy for the future
All Resources got from Nature should go back to it
Make our home Nature friendly, lets work forth
Optimization! Find and make ways to inherit
Lets join hands to defend ourselves, " Our Earth "
I always have a tendency to be struck with sadness whenever some calamities happen , be it a Earthquake, a Tsunami, an accident ,a hijack or terrorism anywhere on Earth.Apart from humans attacking humans ,the nature also shows it wrath to us. Who should we blame?The former,the humans should be inculcated with the meaning of love and power of helping from birth to minimize terrorism .The latter ,we all should join hands including the former to save ourselves .A bit of what I can do and wanted to do is this post.
Your words have Powers.Someone reading it changes somewhere .You and I,we both witness the wrath of Nature.We both have the duty to volunteer and save what we can. You may be a Poeter , a Writer, a Blogger, a Photographer , an Artist or even just a normal Reader.Whomever you are , just spread the message in your own way.
You might link whatever you had done after reading this post in the comment section below or you are free to take any badges ( from below)and use them in your blog , its your wish.
Pi means "Greek letter or Ratio of circle's diameter to its circumference" and is denoted by π ,the value being 3.14.Archimedes named the "number eventually to be known as pi" the Archimedes Constant.
What is Pi- Day ?
Pi Day is a holiday commemorating the mathematical constant π (pi). Pi Day is celebrated on March 14 (of the date's representation as 3/14 in month/day date format or 3/14 in month/day date format), since 3, 1 and 4 are the three most significant digits of π in the decimal form.
What is Pi-ku Haiku ? Pi-ku Haiku:
First line: 3 syllables
Second line: 1 syllable
Third line: 4 syllables
Pi-ku Haiku 1
Beauty of Pi
The true beauty of pi lies in its flexibility.Most of you would have seen the Movie or Read Dan's Brown s "The Da Vinci code".There you can see how beautifully Pi is taken into next level comparing its beauty and relationships with human forms and nature.

Gone out , the soul from the body completing its journey of human form Haunting the minds with memories of the past , with those of regrets Outsmarts human brains with notions of its presence Spreading unsolved mysteries of one year old past life remembrance The Bermuda disappearance ,Secret rituals and Creepy movements
Souls that tries to communicate the Humans,the messenger to unravel some lock That the creator ,somewhere had hidden within the zig - zaw journey of life Open space existence,UFO's appearance ,Where does these all leads to ? Roaming in a dream of characters assigned for some unknown projects Years rolling in the wormhole , swapping lives and looking for that one lock

What is a poetry? If some one asks me this question, I have two answers with me.The former being Poetry is an ART where we paint the pictures with our words and the latter is Poetry is my self-expression. Here I mean self -expression because I try to relate (fantasize ) myself with the characters I write taking into account all aspects of life
