Tri-sedoka II (introducing II)

by Jem Croucher

Sedoka, I thought
as in its syllabic form
it provides the structure to
be very precise
with the words I choose to say
and the theme I choose to give

Sedoka, I thought
Just thirty-eight syllables
to craft poetic beauty
be very concise
and think carefully about
all the words I want to use

Sedoka, I thought
Adequately fits today
and gives the reader something
as these words they rest
in these three given verses
to whet there an appetite


Sedoka is a Japanese poetic writing form comprising 38 syllables in a 5, 7, 7, 5, 7, 7 sequence
