What are some of the most interesting poetic forms?

In exploring the world of poetry, I've discovered a fascinating array of poetic forms that challenge and inspire. Sonnets, with their strict structure and expressive potential, have long been a favorite of mine. Haikus, originally from Japan, offer a minimalist approach to conveying deep emotions and observations. I've also been intrigued by the intricate rhyme and rhythm schemes of the villanelle and the pantoum. Lastly, I've found the free verse form liberating, as it breaks traditional boundaries and allows for boundless creativity.
