“The Gift”


How may I give you

my unconditional love?

Pent-up, it is difficult.

Placed in this small box

it presses hard and escapes

this tsunami in my soul.

The Sodoka (a pair of Katauka) is a single poem which may address the same subject from different perspectives.  It consists of 2 to 3 line Katauka, the syllabic pattern 5,7,7.
