Snow Crystals~ Sedoka

     Snow Crystals

tiny cold crystals
mystery of innocence
a fragile dance by thousands

ivory key notes
reveal treasures of beauty
they dance into formations
                              River 12/10

Sedoka is two katauta poems put together. Each katauta is a 5 7 7 syllable count and can stand on its own. They can be any length and are considered mood poems-for feelings and songs.

Very beautiful, River, and complicated to fit your thoughts into such a strict structure - bravo to you for accomplishing it. I see "this many syllables" and my brain glazes over, hee hee.

And interestingly, the snowfall is so rhythmically silent, as if serenity is its music.
