Good day to you. Thank you for visiting this post.

With calloused palms follows Rondine poetic form, with 10 syllables per line. Its a poem about Rickshaw pullers and adapting to change.

Rondine is a French poetic form that follows 8 or 10 syllables per line (except for R) and the rhythm is

(R a)
b

b
R

where R is a refrain

I am passionate about poetry. The freedom to express a thought in as many lines or form that I choose, to create something that each person can 'personalize and visualize differently' - poetry, is truly an art to enjoy and cherish.
