Exploring Poetry ,WEEK 10 -  of exploring poetry on my journey.It is more or less like TREKKING.Say, a poetry trekking....few joined me in my trekking in the past making my experience an enjoyable one...and I am still awaiting more to join me in.

This week : COUPLETS

How to write a Couplet :
1.A Couplets is a simplest form of poetry
2.It consists of a pair of lines (only two lines) and they rhyme.
3.Each line consist of the same number of syllable.
4.The last word of each line rhyme
5.They usually form a complete thought.

William Shakespeare ,the greatest poet of all time has written his sonnets which usually end in a couplet.

Below my poem for theme Food

Food that nourishes the mind
Preserves knowledge for mankind

Food that fulfills the body
Nurtures one's growth steady

Food that is fed for the spirit
Gathers patience to be with

   Food for body , thought and soul
   They fulfill the Human's Life whole

(An excerpt from the main poem written for Jingle Poetry
