Scribble Sundays: Sijos, Senyrus, Sestinas
Sijo is a Korean poetic form older than haiku. The traditional for is three lines of 14-16 syllables in each line. The modern form is six lines of 7-8 syllables each.
Here’s my attempt:
Sitting at my writing desk, the birds sing their songs outside
Their message is clear, translate their melodies into a poem
The page remains blank except the scritch-scratch left by their feet
