Endless blue when I think too much
Feverish fatigue of not knowing it all sets in
So I borrow somebody’s evolved thought to say goodbye blue
An endless string of pearls is the image of the universe
In hopes of knowing it all, we greed for every thought
forgetting that each pearl holds the reflection of all the infinite pearls
So I focus on one thought this time, explore it in my dream
Glitched stream of consciousness, unbridled energy
Seeing reflections of the beginning and the end. All. In. One. Flow.
NaPoWriMo Day 20: Write a sijo. The sijo (Korean 시조, pronounced SHEE-jo) is a traditional three-line Korean poetic form typically exploring cosmological, metaphysical, or pastoral themes. 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.
I jumped at the mention of metaphysical and wrote this Sijo. Probably spent the most amount of time I’ve spent on a poem since I wanted every word to be there for a reason. Hope you all like it!
