#NaPoWriMo – Day Twenty – Last Trimester

You are here now, though not quite part of this world just yet.
Suspended inside me, you are growing into yourself,
becoming a person, becoming someone waiting for the first fall.

Our (optional) prompt for the day is to write 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.

  1. Oh, this is so sijoriffic, CF. Awesome write!
    I esp like the last trimester / first fall contrast.
    (Friendly proofreader note: Did you typo “though” in Line 1?)
