Some successful authors are poor writers. Judgmentalism comes easy, as does my jealousy.
What’s a kimo?
According to this website, kimo poems are an Israeli 🇮🇱 version of haiku. Apparently, there was a need for more syllables in Hebrew. That said, most of the rules are still familiar:
- 3 lines.
- No rhymes.
- 10 syllables in the first line, 7 in the second, and 6 in the third.
Also, the kimo is focused on a single frozen image (kind of like a snapshot). So it’s uncommon to have any movement happening in kimo poems.
Muri’s “August Scavenger Hunt”
This kimo is for Murisopsis’ Scavenger Hunt, and it is the first of seven kimos that I am writing for my #APoemADay challenge on Twitter. I’ve scheduled it to be posted on that account in October. (I’m still trying to complete my entire year of daily micropoems far in advance.)
A kimo on the subject of jealousy is #2 on Muri’s list. I have to say that Muri picked some tough subjects for her poems… neither hate nor jealousy are themes that draw me!
