I’m trying a form I heard of last night, called 5-2, which is a 5-syllable line followed by a 2-syllable line, no set length.  Let me know what you think of the form.

Ocean is witness
Wings, hair, parallel
Suspended in air
Waves wash close to us
Our hearts slow beating

      Yes, it’s a new form, and as soon as I saw it used I wanted to try it. Thanks Barbara!
