You Can Write a Short Poem! Sijo

Most poets have encountered the haiku form before. Personally, I found that the short lines, combined with only three stanzas, made it hard for me to make a haiku that satisfied me.

The Korean alternative of Sijo offers a longer line, more natural in length to poets who, like me, have more syllables per line.

Check it out! MisFit would love to see some Sijo! Just consider that while the form might be interesting, don't feel compelled to stay within the traditional content.
