Jealousy, rebellion and hatred

An attempt at writing structured lines

Jealousy – A Kimo

Came across a picture of them, love struck.
Jealousy, the green devil
Stood by my side again.

****

Kimo poems are an Israeli version of haiku. Most of the rules are still familiar:

3 lines. No rhymes. 10 syllables in the first line, 7 in the second, and 6 in the third.


Rebellion- A Lune

Suffering and pain
Once again
A rebel was born

****

The lune is also known as the American Haiku. 5 syllables in the first line, 3 syllables in the second line and 5 syllable in the final line.


Hatred – A Hay(na)ku

Hatred
Spreads fast
Like a pandemic

A Hay(na)ku is a 3-line poem with one word in the first line, two words in the second, and three in the third. There are no restrictions beyond this.


I tried my hand at a few forms of poetry under the August Scavenger Hunt challenge hosted by Val at A Different Perspective. Val has given us 13 prompts lots of short forms of poetry to complete by August 31st. To know more about this challenge, click here.
