Now I am experimenting with the Choka form.  My understanding

of its structure is 5,7 X 4, then 7, followed by an envoi 5,7,5,7,7.

opposite to me.

But I still felt quite anxious.

A man with a dog,

confidently strode past me.

Cows, please don’t see them!

Last time you crossed the bridge and

I turned and fled for my life.
