I learned of a poetry form, the Rictameter, through Linda J Wolff, the author of https://urbanpoetry2017.com/. Below is an additional link for the form, with specific instructions regarding lines and syllables.
With winter’s rain
Water color pastels
Cherry blossom’s pink mini-lights
Will flourish, then fall pale like different snow
Seasonal patterns ebb, fast flow
Heart’s canvas ripples, drips
Hold brush steady

Rictameter is a scheme similar to Cinquain. Starting your first line with a two syllable word, you then consecutively increase the number of syllables per line by two. i.e. 2, 4, 6, 8, 10 Then down again, 8, 6, 4, 2 Making the final line the same two syllable word you began with.
