This form of poetry is known as Tanka. It’s a genre of classical Japanese poetry. Tanka poems consist of 5 lines with a total of 31 syllables. The pattern is 5/7/5/7/7. Have a look at the one I’ve written and let me know what you think.

Such Sensual Senses

Eyes for only you

Cologne goaded me so much

My breath caught each time we touched

Sounds of love galore

Should we ever kiss once more
