    The style of the poem reminded me of Haiku, a Japanese style of poetry written about the Seasons

      I do a lot of Haiku, they are three line poems in the form of three lines. The first and last line having five syllables the middle line having seven syllables. Making 17 syllables. The Tanka is similar but has two extra lines with seven syllables in each.
