    The CLARITY PYRAMID form was designed by Jerry P. Quinn. It consists of two triplets and a single line, making a total of seven lines. This type of poetry generally center-aligned when displayed.

    The first triplet has 1, 2, and 3 syllables. The title of the poem is the one-syllable word of the first triplet, which is displayed in ALL CAPITAL LETTERS. This line is followed by a two-syllable line, and then a three-syllable line, both of which clarify the definition of the poem, or are synonyms for the title.

    The second triplet has 5, 6, and 7 syllables. Its design is based around a life event contained within the triplet which helps give a poetic view or outlook on the first line (title).

    The last line is 8 syllables, and is in quotations as this line contains a quote that defines the first line.

    Example 1 by Jerry P. Quinn:
    DROP
    dangled
    fall away

    brim bulging puddle
    pushing over the edge
    leaving its body behind

    "lowered by prying position"
    ----
    ----

    Example 2 by Jacquii Cooke:
    JAZZ
    in thought
    simply deep

    I once heard Coltrane
    His stuff, tight, astounding
    Never have gotten over such

    "His stuff is deep as the ocean..."
