Rondelet: Open Your Eyes

Open your eyes.

The world will consume you,

Open your eyes.

Stop believing all the lies.

There are so many things to do.

The world, waiting for your breakthrough.

Open your eyes.

A Continuation of My Experiment in Poetry.

As I have mentioned previously I ad no idea what I was getting myself into when I started on this journey to learn poetry. I knew the words had to rhyme but I was un aware of how many types of poems there were. Nor was I aware of the sophisticated rhyming schemes. But I has had written when I began I would continue to hone my skills and write poetry.

Though I must confess that I am getting a bit boggled down in the confines of learning poetry. And it is a bit stifling to the inspiration. I will love it when I have completed my study of poetry and can return to just writing poems. But it is good to learn so much about poetry.

This is a Rondelet Poem. I was unable to find the originals of this type of poetry beyond that it is 15 th century France.

I have included the link so you could read about it from wikipedia. Again I do not feel comfortable enough with the subject matter to present it to you myself. For some reason I do believe the word Rondelet means small circle which is clear form the structure of the actual poem.

Inspiration

It is the same as it has always been on HP. I try to inform, entertain and to amuse. Some of these poems are meant to be light hearted. I don’t believe nor would I want to read poems with lot of gravity. Sometimes poems can be amusing and entertaining as well. I am certain I will write both emotional poems and light hearted ones. But right now as I write I am specifically attempting to get the structure down.

I never considered myself a poet. And I am still only a novice at attempting poetry. It is rather frightening for me to try something new and I feel quite out of my element. But I trust you my audience to have patience with me as I take these baby steps into the unknown and attempt to learn poetry.

As always my audience is my inspiration and I profoundly appreciate your input and readership.

If you enjoyed this poem please vote it up.

I did enjoy it and find myself, along with you, taking baby steps in learning poetry and all the different forms there are. It took me quite awhile to realize that not all poems have to rhyme -- that was really difficult for me to adjust to. I wish you all the best in your poetry venture.

I have a question, JT -- are you also a sketch artist? I love the sketch of yourself (that is you I assume) and the one at the top of this poem. Very nicely done. I wish I could draw to illustrate my own poems.

Hi Phyllis,

Sorry to disappoing it is an image from google. I sight the source as google images. But you are correct I also draw but I am more of an oil painter. Atleast I was before my Mother died. I have had a hard time ocncentrating and getting my head back into the space of oil painting again since her death.

I am literally writing my way back to health ad hopefully I will be able to start oil painting again as it would be be very therapeutic for me.

Thanks for the question.

So you paint as well?

JT
