Here are my attempts:
More ancient than haiku, the Korean SIJO shares a common ancestry with haiku, tanka and similar Japanese genres. All evolved from more ancient Chinese patterns.Sijo is traditionally composed in three lines of 14-16 syllables each, totaling between 44-46 syllables. A pause breaks each line approximately in the middle; it resembles a caesura but is not based on metrics.
Like lemon slices full of zing
to bathe my winter weary eyes;
Daffodils shout “Wake up! Stretch!
Push the heavy quilts away”!
Forced in a pot on a grocer’s shelf
They’re just a cold mid-winter tease.
Flip tail bushy paws twinkle nose trouble coming squirrel!
Some call him cute that scrabbling clawed hungry chomping gnawer!
He’s in my kitchen wall. Peanut butter & banana baits my trap.
If you want to try some it's not too late to join in. The Friday Poetry round up is hosted by Cuileann at The Holly and the Ivy. The hosting schedule is found in the sidebar at A Year of Reading for the next couple months. Enjoy your weekend!
