Day 27 ~How to Write a Lantern Poem
OK, We are nearing the end of our challenge. Sorry this got posted later than 5am - life happens. So it's after 9 am AZ time, but we're doing a simple little Japanese poetry form today, a "Lantern Poem."
A lantern is a five line poem in the shape of a Japanese lantern.
The Pattern is:
Line 1: noun (one syllable)
Line 2: describe the noun (two syllables)
Line 3: describe the noun (three syllables
Line 4: describe the noun (four syllables)
Line 5: synonym for noun in line one (one syllable)
