Having been to South Korea twice, but briefly, I fell in love with the culture there. Being a poet I was of course interested in their style. Knowing a very little about Sijo poetry the rhythm intrigued me and this is a westerner’s attempt to capture the essence and evocative nature of the metre:

Morning Rain

As soft grey mist disperses so weak autumn sun can rise
late dawn creeps behind the yet hidden hills unmasking all
clouds heavy with life giving rain blow in from other skies

Very best wishes – Denny Bradbury©2014
