Blackbirds

Blackbirds crying,
Beaks pierced with rue; wing tips broken
Blackbirds crying
Frail songs born on air and dying
And frail sounds no voice has spoken
Tiny beating hearts laid open
Blackbirds crying




Shiver

Shiver of hips
A twist of silk sends coins flying
Shiver of hips
the rhythm poised upon her lips
Dancer, her seven veils sighing
silk upon her bronze skin lying
Shiver of hips
December Form Challenge, 2012 :iconkiwi-damnation::iconprojectdfc:

December 11th: Rondelet
The rondelet is a french form consisting of two rhymes
contained in a seven line stanza. Line one is the exact same as
the 3rd and 7th lines. The structure is:
line 1 - 4 syllables - A (the same as line 3 and 7)
line 2 - 8 syllables - b
line 3 - 4 syllables - A
line 4 - 8 syllables - a
line 5 - 8 syllables - b
line 6 - 8 syllables - b
line 7 - 4 syllables - A

I wrote two.

Really beautiful work - two very different takes on the same form, and both brilliant technically and as pieces of description :D

Didn't know about this type of poetry, seems interesting...

Loved the first one, immediately reminded me of a song called "Broken Bird" C:

Great work :heart:
