My sister emailed me this morning asking me to explain Iamb and Trochee.  Since I am hardly a poetry expert I have decided to Quote Wikipidia.

An iamb or iambus is a metrical foot used in various types of poetry. Originally the term referred to one of the feet of the quantitative meter of classical Greek prosody: a short syllable followed by a long syllable (as in i-amb). This terminology was adopted in the description of accentual-syllabic verse in English, where it refers to a foot comprising an unstressed syllable followed by a stressed syllable   . such as at-tach

A trochee or choree, choreus, is a metrical foot used in formal poetry. It consists of a stressed syllable followed by an unstressed one. such as wonder

The traditional haiku consisted of a pattern of approximately 5, 7, 5 on. The Japanese word on, meaning “sound”, corresponds to a mora, a phonetic unit similar but not identical to the syllable of a language such as English.

The lune is an American form of poetry similar to the haiku.  One way of writing a lune is to count the syllables: thirteen syllables are arranged in 5/3/5 format, five syllables in the first line, three syllables in the second, and five in the third.  A second variation of the lune is to count the words: three words in the first line; five words in the second line; three words in the third line.

I hope this helps out.  I am currently attempting to improve my poetic skills so I am learning more about “Poetics”
– you will find plenty of Lune’s and Haiku’s forthcoming.

Trochee Lune – poetry

In true yin yang fashion, I have decided to write a Trochee Lune
The opposite of Iamb Meter, Trochee is stressed/unstressed. And the Lune form is 3/5/3
enjoy- Los

Wonder Always Nino
Question People, Wisdom Gathers Forces
Sparking Mighty Fires


Iambic Lune – poetry

I decided to try something a little more challenging. An Iambic Lune. The Formal Contraint is unstressed/stressed and word count, 3/5/3.
