For the weekend, a sedoka I

by Jem Croucher

Weekend sedoka
Six lines to paint a picture
with bold stroke and bright colour
capturing content
as with privilege I come
and with gusto seize the day

  1. I love trying different forms of poetry. I will see what I can do with my experiment with Sedoka. Six lines to paint a bold picture… Fun!

  2. I loved the poem – and the invitation to try it. I did… and in turn, I invited others to try it, too.

If you enjoyed the poem. please leave a comment.
