when love is around
words become music
breath feels like fragrance
hearts stop beating once in a while
brain disappears in cupid’s maze
Rules for a Gogyohka:
The form like the Japanese Tanka five lines long. There are no restrictive syllable counts though lines are supposed to be short and concise and end where the voice naturally breaks. Also other restrictions such as needing to use season words are absent from gogyohka. It is also okay to talk about feelings and other such human matters. Other than five short lines the only other requirement is to use sharp concise images.
