Couriers, a Soji Poem

“Two Couriers on the beach. It’s the mail,” shouted lazy fisherman.

Fast clouds race in, only one courier reached the pier.

Grandmother laughed, “Not two. One Courier and shadow. Lazy fisherman faded no sound.

Notes

Soji (so-she) poems were created in Korea from the 14-the C. E. to present day.

Themes may be pastoral, philosophic, or dealing with the whole and/or with the various parts of the universe.

Usually three lines with 14 to 16 syllables. Modern poems are free verse.

Third line presents a “twist” but not in a witty manner.
