NoHoldsBarredPoetryWritingChallenge Day 6: Happy Anniversary

Love Katauta 

the number six, one
off from completion, but six
years this day, you made me whole

*Dedicated to my cousin celebrating her six-year wedding anniversary with her husband today.

**This poem is a katauta (half-poem), a 3-line poem that follows either 5-7-5 or 5-7-7 syllables per line. Considered incomplete, it is usually paired with another katauta to form a sedoka, which acts as a question and answer conversation between two lovers.

Let me know I'm not talking to myself.
