Serving a poetic cocktail (Sedoka)

juggle mind for words
cherry pick appealing ones
and shake a tipsy cocktail

raise a toast for joy
let it roll onto your tongue
say "hey i got it all right"

Review Request (Intensity): 
I want the raw truth, feel free to knock me on my back
Last few words: 
This is my first attempt at a Sedoka which was introduced by Rula in the last few words of her poem...she enticed me to try she explained a Seduka is made up of two katuka being a 3 line verse with 5-7-7 syllable sequence hope i got it right

I can't help but feel (shaking) could be your first word to start this one off. Just a thought as we sure shake those cocktails right?

I have no idea of the form so I am affraid I cannot help with that, we shall wait for some experts, Rula will come I'm sure
Tipsy? Are cocktails tipsy? Try reading it as champagne instead just to see?
Make a champagne cocktail. I like working with you. I hope I have shaken your mind today...

Thank you...Teddy

Thanks for the read and your comment and suggestion. I will think about it during edit..

be well...

with Teddy. It just would seem natural to have it begin with shaking. I do think that tipsy is alright for the other line. Nice little Sedoka. They seem to work well according to what they are supposed to be, I don't remember trying this before, so I can't say for certain. ~ Geez.

Thank you for taking the challenge. I knew it is a piece of cake for aspired poets just like yourself.

The only thing you need to check is K.2 L.2 where you got one syllable less
May be something like: "let it roll (onto) your tongue"
An owesom writing as usual from your pen. I have nothing to say but much appreciation dear raj!


Poetry is when an emotion has found its thought and the thought has found words

Thanks for taking time to read and good to know I got it right except for one syllable less in K2L2 which i have now fixed....

be well....
