  • The Haikuette is another seemingly, American answer to the haiku and was introduced by Louise Sipfle in the Caulkins Handbook and included in Berg's Pathways...

    The Haikuette is:
    • a tristich, a 3 line poem. Each line must be a separate entity, yet must contribute to the whole.
    • syllabic, 17 syllables or less. There is no specified syllable count per line.
    • written without verbs.
    • unrhymed.
    • titled.
      You by Judi Van Gorder

      fresh freckled Lily
      sweet fragrance, pink and spicey
      your face in the sun

A big thanks to the efforts for Judi Van Gorder for a wonderful resource at PoetryMagnumOpus
