Xeroxed Moments: Rondolet (Letters from the Soul #24)

Xeroxed moments
Are too rare to capture in life;
Xeroxed moments
Makes one static with no movements
Gliding with the tide feels alive,
Cannot offer newness to thrive
~Xeroxed moments.

Note: This is a Rondolet. This is a French poetry form consisting of a single septet (7 line poem) with 2 rhymes and one refrain: AbAabbA. A is the refrain. A rhymes with a, b with b. The refrain is of 4 syllables and the other lines are of 8 syllables.

    Such a difficult letter to poem with ... and that too with a rondolet! I think you managed it well... YAM xx

  2. Whatever it's called, your poem makes an impact.

  3. Xeroxed moments - what a nice term you have come up with. Loved the short and sweet poem. And, learnt about a new type of poem - Rondolet.

    Do check out my first poem in the #AtoZChallenge. I've called it an Ode (no clue if that is technically correct though!)
    X-tacy of travel: An Ode To Wanderlust

  4. I'll pm you about this. Need to understand this one!
