:pointr:Form of the Month:pointl:
The form of the month challenge for December is the French form, the bref double.  

Write-up info: Bref Double
The Bref Double
The bref double is a French form. It is similar to the sonnet, but it need not be written in iambic pentameter (it can be in tetrameter, hexameter, or any other meter you prefer). The rhyme scheme is also different from a sonnet. The bref double contains three quatrains (four-line stanzas) followed by a final couplet.
a/x/b/c
x/a/x/c
a/x/a/b
a/b
The x standing for a line that doesn't rhyme with any of the other lines.
An example:
Road Closed...
With crystal rain, the sky is filled
with diamond flakes that swirl and dance
to tunes that they alone may know,
unheeded by the ears of man.
The northern winds play havoc with
mere mortal plans, as drifts now build
their buttresses of pristine white
as if to mark some hidden plan.
This land is decorated, chilled,
and sealed for all to gaze with joy;
see all the children laugh, so thrilled
to witness Mother Nature's show!
Though my intent lies thwarted, killed,
my smile grows broad at so much snow!

I'm terza rima, and I talk and smile.
Where others lock their rhymes and thoughts away
I let mine out, and chatter all the while.

I'm rarely on my own - a wasted day
Is any day that's spent without a friend,
With nothing much to do or hear or say.

I like to be with people, and depend
On company for being entertained;
Which seems a good solution, in the end.</TD></TR></TABLE> What Poetry Form Are You?

I can't even type like that on purpose. With all I see on a daily basis, it hurtssss to write. XP

We're like twins with different ages and parents and birthdays and genetics! :o

That is so true, I mean, if it weren't for those minor details, I'd be splitting my pizza with you right now!!! :D But that's okay - because I don't like to share my pizza.

LoL . . . sorry, I can't keep that up for long. That was a pretty cool quiz you whipped up there. :thumbsup:
