Winged Vanity: Day 20

Today’s NaPoWriMo prompt challenges us to write a ghazal. But I’ve already done this in day one of the marathon, and since I don’t like to repeat myself, I’m doing something else. It’s still a given form, though. Here’s my take on a unique type of Japanese poetry, the Gogyōka.

Gogyōka of Wings
by Kalyiel

Pigeons feel their way
Through the gorged foliage
My mind wanders
To the doubtful corner
Where drunken souls fly.
