Swept Away

The depth of your love
is reflected in your eyes
Hold me tightly - lest I drown

Writing Prompt
Write a Katauta poem.

The Katauta is an unrhymed japanese form consisting of 17 or 19 syllables. The poem is a three-lined poem the following syllable counts: 5/7/5 or 5/7/7.

The Katauta form was used for poems addressed to a lover. A single katauta is considered incomplete or a half-poem, however, a pair of katautas using the syllable count of 5,7,7 is called a sedoka.


By milky moonlight
your silky skin upon mine
ignites a great desire.
