        The best three lines of poetry I’ve ever read! I must try it sometime.

          thank you, it's the Japanese haiku/senryu form ... not exactly either of them. The form has to do with nature: haiku. Or human nature, usually humorous, wry: Senryu.
          Some might not recognize it as such, it has a castle in it so it has a little of both human and nature.
          And I don't usually worry about the line length, 5-7-5, basically three lines.
          And then the tanka which means basically 'little song'. five lines with a "pivot" at about the 3rd or fourth line.
          These are popular I've seen on this site!

          The image came to me, and like the best things, I coiuld not help but put it down in writing, after a little paring of the phrasing.

          Thank you, all. Warm thanks.

            The
            castles
            of great
            Samurai,
            from height,
            frowned down
            upon obeisant
            towns, servants
            of each ruling clan
            setting in stone the master's claim
            when shogunate Edo was Tokyo's name
