Water and Love : Sedoka (Letters from the Soul #23)

Mocktails cannot quench
The thirst of a tired tourist;
Only water can do that

Love alone can soothe
Burns and scars of the journey;
It deep cleanses like water.

Note: This is a Sedoka poem. Sedoka is an unrhymed Japanese poetry form with the syllable count: 5-7-7 and 5-7-7. A Sedoka often addresses the same subject from two perspectives. 


  1. Indeed yes only water can quench our thirst dear and only love can heal our wounds♥️

  2. Such a strong emotion in such a simple form. Lovely indeed and yes, it's true :)
