This is my blog (now there is a surprise!). I will be sticking in it poetry, prose, random musings, things that take my fancy and more than likely lots of pictures of cats. I hope you find something to amuse and/or interest you here.

Air - a sedoka

A sedoka consists of two unrhymed three-line stanzas, each with a syllable count of 5 - 7 - 7.
Often these stanzas go at the same subject from different perspectives, but that is not a requirement.

Gaseous mixture,
oxygen and nitrogen
with trace carbon dioxide.

Blithely whimsical,
diaphanous and dainty
personified by the sylphs.
