one by the other
horizon to horizon
a shared light, free of shadow
ere the fall of night
and early in the morning
sun and moon in an embrace
As a birthday gift to myself (and my lovely wife, of course) this sedoka
was created by revising The Night Is Ours, my poem from yesterday.
A Sedoka is an unrhymed poem composed of two katauta. A katauta is able to stand alone, with three lines and a syllable pattern of 5-7-7. A Sedoka therefore has the syllable count: 5-7-7, 5-7-7. Each katauta must be able to be read independently, but also create a cohesive singular work in the Sedoka.
