Vers BeauCoup ~ Astrology..!!

Vers Beaucoup The Vers Beaucoup, a poem for created by Curt Mongold, which is French for “many rhymes”. Each stanza (you can have as many stanzas as desired as long as they follow the rhyming scheme) consists of four lines with a rhyming word scheme of: a-a-a- a-b-b- b-c-c- c-d-d Each rhyme can only use a MAXIMUM of three words. The fourth “a” rhyme carried over to the second line causes enjambment and creates a strong internal rhyming structure. (Definition of enjambment The continuation of a syntactic unit from one line or couplet of a poem to the next with no pause.) ~~~~~~ Astrology The stars, the Mars, destiny afar The scars of yesterday seem to come my way All the way. Even the moon, clouds strewn Like wispy balloon seem to mourn, ominous and forlorn . The searcher, deciphering future, to nurture And raconteur. Symbols and signs, falling in lines Astrological designs. Depicting life, joy and strife Or anything rife. Past wreak, prospect mystique.. . Fortune untold, fate uncontrolled that planets behold Young or old, only a seer and his peer With a crystal sphere or tantras and mantras Even using yantras, predict events or any ascents . Sometimes soothsayers play doomsayers and naysayers Asking us to conduct prayers. To create peace and release And increase a planet’s interjection or correct a defection Such complication! Makes astrology seem like mythology ~~~~~~~
