It seems I only see you
when you come into my dreams.
I hear words, conversations,
remember what I learned back then.
Lessons never seemed to be lessons
when working by your side.
This is my response to Ronovan Writes Sijo Wednesday Challenge #19: Dreams.
Sijo (a Korean verse form related to haiku and tanka)
~ three lines of 14-16 syllables each
~ a total of 44-46 syllables
~ a pause near the middle of each line
~ first half of the line contains six to nine syllables
~ the second half should contain no fewer than five
Originally intended as songs, sijo can treat romantic, metaphysical, or spiritual themes. Whatever the subject, the first line introduces an idea or story, the second supplies a “turn,” and the third provides closure.
Modern Sijo are sometimes printed in six lines.
