I have recently got introduced to form of japnese poetry called Haiku... and have been quite facinated by it.
Haiku is a short poem, which has 17 syllables (5-7-5) originated in Japan, I really liked them. Because so much is expressed in so less words.
Just to put some examples the following are two haikus, from Basho, one of the most earliest known (17th century) Haiku writers.. (Note: Since these are translated they may not be of 17 syllables)
and bring to men a chance to rest
from looking at the moon.
Moon-light flower field
Daylight gives it back again
to a cotton farm.
I also tried my hand at one haiku.. and here it is
Trembling thunder, Brings downpour
And a New Green World
The above is 17 syllable :D
