Tied With Blue Ribbon

Writing Challenge

This is Day 12 of my 30 Day Challenge.

Today’s writing task is to write a sedoka poem.

‘Sedoka’ is an old, obscure form of Japanese poetry. It is an unrhymed poem made of two three-lined ‘katauta’ with syllable counts 5-7-7, 5-7-7.

A sedoka is a pair of katauta as a single poem. As well as being a single poem, the two katauta should be able to stand alone.

Day 13 – Sedoka Poem

tied with blue ribbon
bundles of old love letters –
ancient kisses still attached

as I close my eyes
I feel your sweet lips on mine –
in my mind, you are still here
