Dark Days of Winter - poetry

Welcome to the first edition of 2019 poetry challenge. Each month myself and a few others choose a theme and write a poem about said theme. It could be free verse, prose, haiku or any other form that we choose. I'm glad you stopped by and hope you enjoy enough to return, also be sure to visit the others and see how they chose to write about...

Winter Blues - poetry theme Jan 2019

Poem title: Dark Days of Winter

"Haiku" is a traditional form of Japanese poetry. Haiku poems consist of 3 lines. The first and last lines of a Haiku have 5 syllables and the middle line has 7 syllables. The lines rarely rhyme.

cloudy bleak dreary

sun has gone into hiding
depression sets in

Sijo is a Korean form of poetry. Similar to the Haiku except it has 14-16 syllables per line, only 3 lines and no more than 46 syllables total.

Dark days of winter grey skies above leaving me cold inside

masking the sun's rays leaving us cold and feeling all alone
darkness in the sky is there any end in sight please sun come out

Be sure to stop by the other participating bloggers and read their poems. Thanks for stopping by!!

  1. Not only do I love what you did with so few words, but I learned something new, I'd never heard of Sijo before.
