Sijo, pronounced sheejo, is a three to six line poem that follows a syllable formula reminiscent of a haiku, but sijo is far older than the haiku. Each line serves its own purpose: the first introduces the topic, the second line extends the topic, and the third line has a twist or surprise, such as a new sound, image, pun or humor, or play on words.
