Forever love (Sedoka type)
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Moonlight sails across

Your flowing feminine frame

Like a lapping tide of love.

These eyes feel your pulse,

beating iambic rhythm,

singing an endless sonnet.

Sedoka is a Japanese verse form that evolved from ancient songs. They can be mood poems, similar to tanka, or they can tell stories in the manner of a song. Sedoka consist of 6 lines of 5-7-7-5-7-7 syllables respectively. Each 5-7-7 unit is called a katauta. Traditionally, the second katauta says the same thing as the first katauta, although in a different way. In modern English the syllable count is somewhat more flexible, and there is usually a turn, or change in direction, in lines 3 and 5. The turn in line 3 is sharp, and the turn in line 5 is gentle.

    This has such a strong connotation of secure and everlasting commitment, very deep sentiments portrayed here...

    When in love, the normal things become magical, like the heart of the other beating.

    This is the kind of verse that should be read out loud at a wedding, so beautifully done :-)
