a rainbow in words- 8th


You are the bloom of my life
Vibrant, delicate, fragile
You are heavenly
Shame about the thorns

The dodoitsu is a Japanese poetic form developed towards the end of the Edo Period, which came to an end in 1868. As with most Japanese forms, the dodoitsu does not have meter or rhyme constraints, focusing on syllables instead.

This 4-line poem has seven syllables in the first three lines and five syllables in the fourth–and final–line. The dodoitsu often focuses on love or work with a comical twist. While my examples below do not have titles, I haven’t found any word on whether dodoitsu traditionally have titles or not.
