April’s Poetry month – A Poem A Day #3

The Lune/ American Haiku – The lune (rhymes with moon) is a very short poem. It’s similar to the popular haiku form of poetry. While a haiku follows a 5/7/5 syllable pattern, the lune’s syllable pattern is 5/3/5. Typically, since the middle line is restricted to three syllables, it is the shortest line of the three. This gives the lune a curve on the ends similar to a crescent moon.

Lune Poems 3 Spril 2016

Love can motivate
As can hate,
each one can cause pain.

To ride on the wind
Leaving solid ground.

I know a secret
If I tell
It won’t be secret.

Monkeys will mimic
Ev’ry move.
Toddlers are monkeys!

To keep a secret
Mind your tongue
Once spoken, it’s news.
