Jealous – A Kimo

free me from the bondage of my fear dear

i sit here nervous and scared

is she better than me?

 

for Val’s Scavenger Hunt prompt #2 Kimo – on the subject of jealousy (https://murisopsis.wordpress.com/2021/07/30/looking-for-an-august-scavenger-hunt/)

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.
