Kimo – Day 5

the coming storm

an eerie shroud of silence chokes the air,
cool and wet this steamy night,
low clouds strobe gray on blue


Kimo Poems

Kimo poems are an Israeli version of haikqApparently, 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.
