This is in Hay(na)ku and Reverse Hay(na)ku form.

“Hay(na)ku is a 3-line poem with one word in the first line, two words in the second, and three in the third.

Hay(na)ku is considered a modern poetry genre, first presented in June 2003.  According to J Zimmerman, in a traditional Hay(na)ku, there are:

A tercet: 3 lines.
A total of 6 words: 1 in the first line, 2 in the second line, and 3 in the third line.
There is no restriction on syllables or stressed or rhymes.

Variations:

In the ‘reverse’ haynaku, the longest line is placed first and the shortest last. The total is still 6 words: 3 in the first line, 2 in the second line, and 1 in the third line.
Multiple hay(na)ku can be chained to form a longer poem.”

    Becca, I’m aware of this wonderful blogging friend, Victoria, who invites people to share all sorts of styles of poetry. Here’s a link to her site: http://liv2write2day.wordpress.com/2011/05/23/monday-morning-writing-prompt-the-month-of-may

    Her spirituality shines through in her poetry, her articles and comments.
