Jealousy- A Kimo

the green monster rears its hideous head
fed by insecurity
and destroys happiness

Jealousy can ruin so many bonds. The green-eyed monster mostly arises from lack of self-doubt and self-confidence and it can led to disastrous effects if left unchecked. What are your thoughts about jealousy?

This Kimo on jealousy was written in response to the August Scavenger Hunt challenge hosted by Val at A Different Perspective. Val has given us 13 prompts lots of short forms of poetry to complete by August 31st.

Kimo poems are an Israeli version of haiku. Apparently, there was a need for more syllables in Hebrew. That said, most of the rules are still familiar:

  • 3 lines.
  • No rhymes.
  • 10 syllables in the first line, 7 in the second, and 6 in the third.

Also, the kimo is focused on a single frozen image (kind of like a snapshot). So it’s uncommon to have any movement happening in kimo poems. To know more about this challenge, click here.

This post is a part of the â€˜Blogchatter Half Marathon’ campaign.

  1. Oh that’s well said. I had to google whats a green monster, have not heard of it before 🙂 And yes, it can ruin bonds. I think there are lots of other reasons to be jealous too, but you have mentioned two strong points. Good Kimo!
