Men Goof, If Sly! - Sijo

To the symphony of rain and thunder, he struts.
Entranced she looks on;
With disdain he spreads the plume.
She, mesmerized by his beauty and variegated colors, is
And yet,when eyes meet, disinterest shines;
She knows,
Men goof , if (she remain) sly!

Prompted at : Tuesday title and Poetry stretch

This prompt is special for two reasons. Firstly, coz I have used an anagram of my blog title ( song of my life <==> Men Goof, if sly!)

And also coz I have used one of the korean style Sijo. I am not sure if I have given it a good try. but here is my first attempt!

It either consist of 3 lines lof 14-16 syllable. The first line introduces a theme. Second one elaborates on it and the third one has a twist in the tale :)

Few examples here..

The spring breeze melted snow on the hills then quickly disappeared.
I wish I could borrow it briefly to blow over my hair
And melt away the aging frost forming now about my ears.


Oh that I might capture the essence of this deep midwinter night
And fold it softly into the waft of a spring-moon quilt
Then fondly uncoil it the night my beloved returns.

So tender! I am gonna try more. I know this one is not upto the par.. but it is a start!
