I have never heard of this form yet I’ve tried to follow the guidelines to create a lanturne.
The challenge has been given by Colleen (Word Craft Poetry #TankaTuesday) This week, we have to write a lanturne poem or a series of lanturne poems. (A series gets you extra credit, by the way).
The lanturne is a five-line verse shaped like a Japanese lantern with a syllabic pattern of one, two, three, four, one. (1, 2, 3, 4, 1).
I have tried to write a series of lanturne poems.
If they call you,
others look grim
to stream of life
