——–

Contemplate and speculate, 

Absorbed in careful thoughts explore.

Searching within, why am I torn?

Decisions difficult await.

——

I’m no philosopher ruminating,

Wonder without, within my core.

Contemplate and speculate.

Absorbed in careful thoughts explore.

——-

Thinking, wears one out, unsated, 

Answers true or some folklore.

Scientific explanation, something more?

Faith and the heart have their say made.

——–

Contemplate and speculate 

——–

What is wrong and what is done right?

Consumed by such thoughts of inner voice.

The problem: always, forever, having choice

Sometimes the wish to never think fights.

——-

Float away, grace whirlpool, without sight.

Easier to be blind than make your choice.

What is wrong and what is done right?

Consumed by such thoughts of inner voice.

——-

Is there strength in your heart, might? 

Or do you follow whoever’s voice? 

Let others think for you, make choices.

Choosing right, requires foresight.

What is wrong and what is done right?

    1. Thanks so much. Glad you like. I’m not sure what the syllable count for a rondel was I just assumed it 8 syllables to a line? But I looked on Shadow Poetry and it didn’t have a syllable count ( a specific meter) so I think as long as you kept the rhyme pattern, you can do whatever meter you like. Iambic pentameter for instance, since it’s common. I use my fingers and count out the syllables as I write, and check My poem at the end a time or two to make sure the syllable count is correct. Hope that helps 🙂

      1. Mhm.. thank you for sharing about your way of approach I’ve picked some points. And one thing I feel crucial is to have a relevant pair in Ab, the one which refrains, and especially A which could give an anticipatory beginning and a satisfying end.

  1. “Choosing right, requires foresight.” — amen to that! You ask some deep and probing questions in this piece. It’s a perfect to spark profound thoughts. I need to go think about some of the questions raised 🙂

  2. I find these lines especially compelling:

    Float away, grace whirlpool, without sight.

    Easier to be blind than make your choice.

    Speaking to the difficulty in facing decisions and decision-making. The repeated question of “What is wrong and what is done right?” is also thought- and heart-provoking. This is an excellent study of the Filipino word and the poetic form!
