THis style of poetry that's to be FRENCH counting the number of
syllables per line in a format of 5 lines on a style of 5-7-5-7-7
like this would be called Tanka poetry

From above i see =5
the earthly bound foundation =7
the people of love =5
also the greed in the world =7
will there ever be of peace =7

this also to be a great form of writing like the Japanese traditional
HAIKU of 3 lines 17 syllables in a 5-7-5 format

i found that the french way express likes use in a stanza where it
repeats from start to finish in a form of way

have anyone written in this style or know about this FRENCH way
of poetry scribing ???

yeah ! HODEE it's a French style using a format of such and many times you can
fine it in a stanza settings and one way i found it to be written is from start -to-finish
like matching on the same here is a sample

my loveth behold
today u pass through my heart
i can't think rapid
but u cascade within me
it's my heart you now behold

(The stanza speaks of a love beholding )
it's a really cool way of expression or emotional flowing
any form ,style, creation is good i am learning it more and more
and fine it to my likings and style, I'll try a few in poetry forum

TRY IT RIGHT HERE IN THIS THREAD FAMILY !!!!

Brutha Rich,
I've done a couple of these in the Haiku forum :


PEACE...


Deep within one's soul
a neverending stillness
God's sweet enigma...
abides in each one of us
ever vigilant of need



Much...
Peace & Love

It's been a good while, but this place has always been home. Thankful to be here.
Hi! I'm not as active on this account as I want to be. For one I tend to forget that this site exists until I check my email. Two, I'm currently in the process of building up a fine art site for Oklahoma black and native historical references. The references correlate with another site that will be a storytelling site that has not yet been produced.
Happy to be back and gaining more knowledge!
