This form is “Piku” ~ taken from the mathematical term “pi” (which is 3.14) and the poetic form “haiku” (a 3-line poem of a certain syllabic length). This form is three lines, following the syllabic pattern of 3-1-4 (in reference to the math term “pi”).  Get it!?  🙂  Makes for a very short, simple poem. Which, in its very nature, addresses the Theme Thursday prompt for today:  “simple”.  The picture of a mathematical equation is also a part of the prompt. It is what made me immediately think of the piku form.  [As a side note: it took waaay longer to write these “process notes” than it did to write the poem! LOL]
