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.
