Welcome to the home of the jorio, a verse form I created. It’s a very simple concept, which I’ll explain.

A jorio is 4 lines, with each line 4 words. As I’ve described it before: poetic cubism.

The idea behind the jorio is that I’ve always had the impression that people felt that poetry was long and complicated. I wanted to show that it did not necessarily needed to be so. A jorio is usually not that difficult to read. It is more often about the image it evokes, than a deeper meaning or symbolism. Though you can always find something…

Joria (plural of jorio) are moments in time, a feeling, an image. A fleeting instant captured into words.
