The Moon In You

By: CelestialNinja


PROMPT: Sijo

The night sky is what brought us together, everlasting moonlight
You’ve been gone for a while now, but I still catch myself staring up
Up at the dark sky, looking at the moon, but always seeing you.


Peer Review

The way that from the beginning you tie in the moon to this love story or couple is really beautiful and makes the ending that much more painful because we know there's a reason for this character seeing their partner when they stare at the moon.


I'm left feeling forlorn! It's a very sad romantic sijo, the beginning is so romantic and sweet and then it just becomes so sad by the ending. That switch of emotions so quickly evokes strong emotion in the reader.

This was a really awesome sijo and I loved reading it! Great job :)
