3 Sijo: a poetry reading

The second line group syllables in the same pattern three, four, four. And the third line is a group of 3543 syllable groups. The lines of the poems have been broken into six with two sets of syllable groups per line. The first two CJ that I'll read are sort of pair and include similar lines rearranged for perhaps a different meaning or effect. And the third Sea Joe is one of the first that I ever wrote. Please let me know what you think

Hey. This just popped up on my feet, and I wanted to thank you. I've never heard of the Cgl format, and I there's so much longing and so much presence at Duality is really beautiful for me to listen to, and I loved all three of them. Did you say? Join me in soul. Like, so u? L? I'm not sure I heard that right, but let me know if that's what you said

I find that having a form or having a structure to a poem or something to follow really freed up my creativity, I guess, or trying to make sense of poetry, because I find poetry very confusing, to be honest. I'm more of a fiction writer, so I like structure, I think. And as far as your question, yes, I used the word soul, Seoul, meaning Korea itself

Thanks for clarifying that. I thought you meant Seoul, Korea, but I wasn't sure, and now it all places so perfectly. I also think global orientation makes things so interesting when we think about our work and where it lies in the universe and people hearing it in different places at different times, and how beautiful and universal poetry really is. So to conjure up that invitation to meet you there, it just it was it's beautiful. And I assume that, but thanks for clarifying

These were all so, so lovely. Thank you. For them, there's just this tenderness and this hope interwoven throughout each one. Very beautiful

I really like the balance of these pieces, and I mean that sort of in terms of the accident, the sound, the sort of meter of them. So know you've spot something. I'm going to go and look it up and get to work on this form. Thank you, Jacqueline. I really enjoy your presence on this app

You. Hey, Jacqueline. I just wanted to say I really, really loved this, and I am so intrigued by this form now that I can't wait to have some time to go and actually explore it a little bit. These were beautiful, and they're haunting and tender, and I'm just so excited about this form. So thank you for sharing this
