Gogyōka (5-Line Poetry)

Gogyōka is a form of poetry that is new to me.

My efforts so far, last night and today:

Silence descended ~ they knew ~ to close their eyes ~ be still ~ allow sleep to take hold.

Once more returned ~ Secrets revealed ~ Shared truth ~ Trust ~ My positive side.

Red glow ~ stopping flow ~ wind gusts strong ~ Street Furniture ~ dances to song.

I enjoy this simple yet effective form, it hopefully will help to capture moments in time for my longer projects too.
