Experimental Poetry Form: Hopping frog

This experimental poetry from is based off of the idea of a hopping frog.  It is meant to resemble a frog jumping down tree branches.

The form has six tercets.  The tercets represent the frog.  Each tercet has six, eight and then six syllables in their three lines.  The first tercet is on the left, the second is in the center, the third is on the right.  The fourth goes to the center, the fifth goes back to the right, and the sixth goes to the left side.  There is an extra space between the third and fourth and between the fourth and fifth tercets.  The position of the tercets, represent the frog moving down the tree.  The form looks like this:

Six syllable line
