Embrace the Progress


Sedoka is a traditional Japanese unrhymed poetic form
comprising two three-line ‘katauta’
with a syllabic sequencing
of 5/7/7, 5/7/7

Bold and beautiful
They’re leaning on each other
Sympathizing and learning
Learning how to thrive
In a world of white privilege
Embrace the progress

Femininity
Can be carried way too far
Masculinity can, too
Appreciate self
Enjoy unique attributes
Let’s all embrace the progress

Thanks for visiting JanBeek
See ya tomorrow

I invite you to try your hand at a Sedoka.
It’s fun! See a sample at this link:

Wordless Wednesday’s Tanka


Wordless Wednesday

book lot

Wednesdays are wordless

According to some bloggers

But how can poets

Contain all the bubbly words

Springing up inside of them?

 

A tanka is a form of Japanese poetry
that follows a syllable format.
Unlike Haiku with only three lines,
Tankas are composed of 5 lines.
Lines 1 and 3 have 5 syllables.
Lines 2, 4, and 5 contain 7 syllables each.

Try your hand at a Tanka!

Line 1- 5 syllables

Line 2- 7 syllables

Line 3- 5 syllables

Line 4- 7 syllables

Line 5- 7 syllables
