A to Z Poetry: Lanturne Poems

A Lanturne poem is a five-line poem shaped like a Japanese lantern with a 1/2/3/4/1 syllabic pattern.



White
lily
blooms in the
garden after
rain.
 
 
Old
sea goat
sails into
storm’s eye one last
time.

Today’s Haiku


Haiku Heights April A to Z: Lily

Spring is here at last
Easter lilies are calling
To girls in dresses



Carpe Diem: Capricorn (“Goat-horned” The Sea Goat)

Old sea goat
Butting heads with the ram
Cosmic clash

  1. Love your Lanturne poetry. There is a Dutch poetry from called elfje that has 1/2/3/4/1 words. The syllables adds a different challenge. Liked your Lanturne better than the haiku. Hope that was okay. Actually sort of mesmerized by the new form…new to me.
