Dancing with the Moon: A Sijo

Today’s official NaPoWriMo prompt is to write a Sijo, which is a traditional Korean poetry form. It’s described as similar to the haiku, but the lines are longer and, to me, it seems more complicated. I like how this turned out but am not sure if it is technically correct. Here is a site that explains in detail how to write one. 

The moon, always up in the sky, exerts a pull on tides and souls.

Rising, falling feelings as she changes, forcing me too to dance.

She hears the hoot of an owl, or mysterious astral song.
