Ronovanwrites Sijo – Perfection

  • 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.

***

They say beauty is in the eye of the beholder, perfection seen

Perhaps such possibilities are fleeting, trick of the mind’s eye

And the vision is ruled only by the heart, the true view.
