simply, is a five-line poem, but a unique twist of such a poem is to have the number of words in the number of the line: line one, one word (the title), line two, two words, a description, line three, three words that tell the action, line four, four words that express emotion, and line 5 recalls the title in a single word. There are many variations of this type of poetry, so no need to be structure bound, a quick way to express for the writer, and a sudden glimpse for the reader. Look for it here:

your heart and mine

Here you'll find ideas about how to hone your craft as I practice mine and lead you to some of my favorite published poems and poets.
