Sort of a made up form..."Senrakata"
May 2, 2016 1:31pm CST
I thought that I knew of a poetry form that had the syllable count 5-7-7, but when I tried to look it up, I could not find it. There may be one other there, but I haven't been able to find the name. This poem is written with two verses with three lines each, their syllable counts being 7-7-5. I "slammed" the names of two Japanese poetry forms, the "Senryu" and the "Katauta" together and came up with "Senrakata". ~*~ All my strength comes from the Lord For it is the Lord, only He that can lift me.
