About This Poem

SIJO -Virgin-

#3~"Lost not forgotten" 
"A solitary star had gone astray, yawning before the dark, 
hiding; straight ward, waver the wink of light, slowly fading. 
By my window I shed a tear; I farm the fields of my soul."

"Above the winter masses, buried, I wait for the sun. 
Sweet smelling kitchen, the hunger rise, within, my tongue swings... 
Rise away from the table... noisily I yell for my bike."

#3~"Dreaming with the God's"
"Downhill of Mount Olympus, everything felt real.
In the orchard of my dreams, I am structured as a statue. 
Mr. Sandman made a fool, of my midnight summer dream."

Take it easy on me, i'm a SIJO -Virgin-

    Hi Skat, I know nothing about any poetry forms so I can't comment on the form itself. I do know what I enjoy reading and these three pieces I enjoyed. I know when I think something is well written, these three pieces were well written. Your vision in each comes forth with such ease. Have a good day. Catch you later. Your Friend always....MIKE.

    should read: ...oh what has the poet done to me to keep me chained to such beauty? You plant in that field of your soul seeds of beautiful emotions put into words for we here to enjoy in meditation. A way to say it that makes us see life in a different context, to farm the fields of my soul, Oh yes!

    one line: I FARM THE FIELDS OF MY SOUL. and WOW. If one line makes an emotion grow in the mind of heart, oh hat has the poet done to me to keep me jained to such beauty. bob a.k.a Robert Henry Poulin

    A SIJO virgin? not any more. lol

    Well for being a sijo virgin you write pretty darn well! I liked the picturesque emotion in the first one the best. But Down-under appealed to my love for biking in the warm of the day. You definitely have the right idea for this style of poetry... the last line bringing the first two lines to a nice conclusion.

    Well penned, Skat. i love the last sijo best. :)

    An interesting write.

    Exchange structure for romance Skat - it always works, but you've got to trust the resilience of your imagination - this poem is abstract for me and I like it so - a virgin with a voice - J.A.B. %
