A form of poetry, similar to that of a haiku, however words rather than syllables are counted. The form, is 3 5 3. The image that should be seen in the shape of the words should be a crescent. No rhyme or meter is needed. The lantern also has a similar form, though is slightly longer.

Words are poetry
Alive with image and sense
Each one unique
