Poetry Forms Easily Explained - a work of Bianca with additions by kansaspoet
A form that I found by accident... the JÃ¡nakÃº. (pronounciation: hay (na) ku )
The forum owner of "The World in Chapter and Verse" writes:
"The form was invented by Eileen Tabios. It is simple: A tercet comprised of one, two- and three-word lines. Variations can be created from the basic form.
The form was Inaugurated on June 12, 2003 (Philippine Independence Day) The form became popular and now It is used by poets all over the world. "
So... the explanation is very simple: a tercet comprised of one, two and three word lines. The example shown on the webpage is a poem written by Ernesto Priego...he wrote a book using this form.
Just a day in Spring...
blossoms you see
stealing peanuts away
in the tree
find their food
shelter against sun
every single second
my back yard
day in Spring.
