Lost word – sedoka

by Jem Croucher


I was a lost word
Bereft, I had searched in vain
for inclusion in a verse

But on this last day
my searching is completed
and I take my place with pride

Day 7 of 7 in the Jemverse ‘Six Lines’ event – a sedoka a day for 7 days.

A Sedoka is an unrhymed poem of Japanese origin comprising two three-lined Katauta. A Sedoka has a syllabic sequencing of 5/7/7, 5/7/7.

I hope you’ve enjoyed this mini-sedoka series. I run similar events on Jemverse from time to time, so please keep reading daily.
