Prompt Inspired Juuichi
Years ago, I developed a form of poetry called “juuichi” , inspired by the Japanese haiku.
“Juuichi” (pronounced jooitchy), is the Japanese word for eleven.
A juuichi is untitled, and has a set number of words rather than syllables.
Lines one and five each have only one word, while lines two, three and four each have three.
Rhymes are optional.
This juuichi was inspired by the following prompt:
lilac petals fall
onto the lawn
like sweet smelling
