    Lantern seems to be so simple, but I find them not so. However this is very good.

    I found my first and last word first...one syllable word which is not easy. But once I found them, the inside parts seemed easier to write.

    Thanks !! Wasn't as easy as I thought it would be. One syllable words with the same thought or theme was the hardest part.

    I like the form. And a nice effort on your part. I'll probably have a stab at this form at some stage, when The Muse deigns to fill me with inspiration.

    This was my first attempt. I think I will try a few new short forms..A Nonet or an Etheree?? I've written Haiku and Synru. Not very good one's but I followed the forms.
