We’re revisiting a form this week. The Dodoitsu is a fixed folk song form of Japanese origin and is often about love or humor. It has 26 syllables arranged as four lines of 7, 7, 7, 5 syllables respectively. It is unrhymed and non-metrical.
Find our previous example here: DODOITSU
Brought her trinkets of amber
pendant of fire that glowed
in darkness, shimmered in light
she left him ablaze
two apart, yet together.
souls apart, yet joined as one.
hearts a part of a great love.
such are random hearts.
