Today’s prompt is Library of Souls (Miss Peregrine’s Peculiar Children, #3) by Ransom Riggs.
The Lanterne is:
- a pentastich, a poem in 5 lines.
- syllabic, 1-2-3-4-1 syllables per line.
- is composed with no punctuation and no rhyme, each end-word should be strong.
- centered on the page. Since this is a concrete or shape poem, the length of the word on the page factors into the equation, syllable count is not enough to determine the selection.
- title optional.
