The moonless evening
turns its back against the sky
and leaves it empty.

Perhaps the morning
will come back with its hands full,
holding up the sun.

Sedoka

The Sedoka is a Japanese form. It centers around the
idea of Questions and Answers. The syllabic count is
that of haiku (5,7,5) and there are 6 lines, 3 in each
stanza. The content can be of any theme but one
must question or mention something in the first, and
then either contradict or answer in the second. It's all
about leaving you guessing and making people think. I have also
read that each verse should stand alone as a haiku. Others say
it should be one verse of six lines.
