i’d be unperturbed, like mirror’s image,
if i see myself in you,
without doubting myself.
Poetry form :- Kimo (10/7/6 syllables)
More about Kimo :-
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. Source :- Writer’s Digest
