Ronovanwrites Sijo – Grace

You should use the word in the title of this post as your inspiration as either a theme of the Sijo or in the poem itself.

There are:Three Lines,14-16 syllables per line. A total of 44-46 syllables for the entire poem.

  • The first line of the Sijo usually sets the theme.
  • The second line elaborates on the first line.
  • The third line brings the poem matter to a close.

The setting can be nature, a favorite season, or some event of your day. Something, as I mentioned above that can be contemplative in nature. Within each of the three lines there is usually a pause.

The Concert of Aging

Grace was fading as if a dream, once being a symphony

Now a cacophony of mixed noise, hurtled in space surround

Brittle bones and awkward movements, complete a life’s orchestra.
