Two Dodoitsus (II – Sunday)

And so to the beach again
for ocean's cooling water
Sunday blisters relentless
yet this gift is here

Two Dodoitsus (I – Saturday)

Weekend and Saturday comes
and the mercury still climbs
Summer well and truly here
Felt within this heat

Tuesday Dodoitsu

For Tuesday in Newcastle
dodoitsu fits the bill
to capture what I'm feeling
as my boots I fill

[‘Dodoitsu’ is a Japanese poetic form with a syllabic sequence of 7-7-7-5. It’s traditionally non-rhyming although, with poetic license, this one does!]

Dodoitsu for Saturday rain

Concluding ‘The syllabic series 22’ from Jemverse (7 of 7)

Not that it ever left us
always there behind the grey
biding time for its return
drying up the rain
