This page is dedicated to explaining the different poem styles that I may use. This list may be updated for further use. Use this page if you might be looking for a style to spice up your verse! Also, my poems are marked in italics.

A haiku originates from Japan, following a style with a specific number of syllables in each line. This pattern is 5-7-5. For example:
Haikus are clever.
Follow a five-seven-five,
And you might succeed.

Tanka also originates from Japan. The syllable pattern is instead 5-7-5-7-7. For example:
This is a tanka.
I like to play with this type.
Frolic on the wind,
Playing with words as I go,
And connecting all of them.
