Bussokuskiku New form to play with

Post by poeticpiers » Thu Oct 29, 2009 3:16 am

Bussokusekiku

6 lines
5 syllable, line one
7 syllables line two
5 syllables line three
7 syllables in the last three lines

Orientally
inspired I write poetry.
Exercise my brain
Look at things differently
If I can do it so can you

White chrysanthemum.
Signifying purity
One single blossom.
Typically Japanese
in its simplicity
Needs no explanation.

Savage warrior
who composes poetry.
Shows his softer side.
He must be a samurai.
A well trained brave fighting man
Writes beautifully of love.
