Deep Caress

2008 Poetry

Heart beats in my chest,

with just the slight thought of you.

Your warmth fills my joyful soul.

Thump it beats for you,

pounding in heartfelt glory.

My heart is yours to caress.

Author's Notes/Comments: 


Sedoka is a 6 line poem composed of two katauta, or half-poems.
Each katauta has three lines and is complete in itself, and should
be able to stand alone - they follow a pattern of 5-7-7 syllables.
Two of them combine together to make a complete whole,
for a 5-7-7-5-7-7 pattern, for a total of 38 syllables.
