I don't think that I've heard of this poetry form before, but found it on a poetry site. A Jueju is a form that is a quatrain (four lines). It can be written with lines that have either five or seven syllables each. From the example I found, the lines do not (need to) have rhyme. ~*~*~*~*~*~*~ Ark landed on the mountain Noah and his family come God puts His bow in the cloud Will not flood the earth again. © Stacey Uffelman 1-24-6 ~*~*~*~*~*~*~ And I will establish my covenant with you; neither shall all flesh be cut off any more by the waters of a flood; neither shall there any more be a flood to destroy the earth. And God said, This is the token of the covenant which I make between me and you and every living creature that is with you, for perpetual generations: I do set my bow in the cloud, and it shall be for a token of a covenant between me and the earth. ~Genesis 9:11-13

I can't say that I knew what the form was called (other than a quatrain), but I do know that I have read and written plenty of them.
