Being

Sedoka

the night is not dark
when the moon and the stars shine
as the kind is meant to do

and people not bad
by faith and hope governing
the very sorry being



The sedoka is said to be an ancient Japanese poem made up of syllables. As I understand it, the poem is made up of two tercets of five, seven, and seven syllables each. They say "sedoka" means "head-repeated poem", which, I understand, means that the head of each verse, the line of five syllables, should be a statement which is built upon in the two following lines.
