Thank you, Don! I saw a challenge from Maggie (https://fromcavewalls.wordpress.com/2021/10/09/mlmm-saturday-mix-lucky-dip-lanturne/) about writing these really tiny pieces: 11 syllables to create the shape of a lantern! And the rhythm has to just right so that breking of lines is not odd. I loved it! Have ever tried writing a piece of poetry?
