Drink of the channeled angel tears
through my long, hollow frame.
Blow into me the whispers of you
and I will play melody.
Will then you move in reverie
to the sound of your truth?
I missed the link up but was none the less inspired by Form For All with dVerse Poets Pub. Hosted by Samuel Peralta – on Twitter as @Semaphore, focusing on the form Sijo which I greatly enjoyed drawing within. Decided to share in this weeks Open Link Night. My gratitude always for the time you offer my words ~ Rose
“Sijo is composed in three lines, each line having 14-16 syllables, for a total count of between 44-46 syllables for the entire poem.
There is usually a pause in the middle, and this has allowed English sijo to be written in six lines, with each line breaking at the caesura.
The fact that sijo – the word is both singular and plural – are composed of only three lines drives the discipline of the composer to focus on the essence of their theme.”
