This is an open invitation to those who are bold enough to try new forms of poetry. Actually a response from darkdatu, one of the enthusiasts in the Cinquain thread, this hopes to generate as much positive “riders” as the “train” did and a more cooperative dynamic on the site. Those who are inclined to use our native language may post their pieces at “Sijo – ‘Di Bagay”. It is also worth-noting that a fellow Filipino, Victor P. Gendrano, offers this link for a more detailed peek into the originally Korean poem http://www.geocities.com/vgendrano/sijo.html. The Sijo Ship is set to sail, jump on in.
“If I can’t handle your worst
I do not deserve your best.”
She did not sniff like a bitch.
He was not built true to plumb.
She could have put up with him but
he haunted like Hamlet’s father.
