Life – Some Thoughts

Awaken, Ruminate – first & second Lai poems – #keeplearning

Leave a comment

sunset-172079_1280  Lai is a French poetic form.  It’s a nine-line poem or stanza that uses an “a” and “b” rhyme following this pattern: aabaabaab.

The lines with an “a” rhyme use 5 syllables; the “b” rhyme lines have 2 syllables.

I was walking towards home today and the setting sun shone into my eye. I was unable to focus on anything else, the sun captured my attention with its beauty.

I wrote my first and second Lai poems on this experience. They are titled Awaken and Ruminate respectively.

Experience something new today, relive the joy of nature….Have a great day.

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.
