July Challenge: San-San

This is another first-half of a poem for Jill’s July Challenge. It is in a form called a San-San, which comes from the Japanese word for three because it uses three words or ideas three times each. It is an 8-line form with the rhyme scheme abcabdcd. I have actually completed this poem but will post only the first half because I am curious about how you all might complete it.

How I would love to see a crystal ball,

But since the future’s not yet writ in stone,

Impossible to see it in advance,

I only listen to its crystal call.
