Bulldozers remodel neighbor’s home, fallen timbers unforgiven.
Pot-bellied men pin and tuck saggy bits, resurfacing structure.
Gaudy new facade exposes more faults than it conceals.
Happy NaPoWriMo Day20. Today’s prompt is to write a new poem form for me called a Sijo. This is a traditional Korean poetic form. Like the haiku, it has three lines, but the lines are much longer. Typically, they are 14-16 syllables, and optimally each line will consist of two parts – like two sentences, or a sentence of two clauses divided by a comma. The first line sets up an inquiry or discussion, the second line continues the discussion, and the third line resolves it with a “twist” or surprise.
