New Little Poem

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 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

Brand New Juuichi

This was inspired by the following prompt:
where the word given was “dance”.

loves to dance,
whirling and twirling
around in her
