NaPoWriMo – Day 1 – Chaos

exquisite chaos
bound in symmetry


Catching up on my NaPoWriMo challenge – Day 1. This is no way to start the month, but yesterday was UTTER chaos! I am using the Lune (The Lune is a short form: 5/3/5 – no other rules, may rhyme, any topic) as my form of choice in response to the challenge:
Daily prompt (optional, as always)! Sometimes, writing poetry is a matter of getting outside of your own head, and learning to see the world in a new way. To an extent, you have to “derange” yourself – make the world strange, and see it as a stranger might. To help you do that, I’d like to challenge you to write a poem inspired by this animated version of “Seductive Fantasy” by Sun Ra and his Arkestra. If you don’t feel after watching it a little bit like the top of your head’s been taken off, and your thoughts given a good stir – well, maybe you are already living in a state of heightened poetic awareness!

Daily Lune #30

A final Lune to close out the month of June. I’ve enjoyed this micro-poetry form. Thanks to Jane Dougherty and Willow for joining the daily challenge. 😊

whisp’ring breeze
dew diamonds misting


Daily Lune #29

green man beaming
from atop his lush throne
gaia in ecstasy

justice cannot come
soon enough
for the exploited


Two Lunes today…one a la syllable and the other, word count. I had a bit of photoshop fun with today’s picture. Of course there was not a face in the foliage, but there was definitely a presence of the Green Man himself, I am convinced of it…see if you don’t agree. This is the original photo I took from my vantage point at a pharmacy drive-through…

…can you see him? Or maybe I am still a bit loony from this week’s strawberry full moon! 😉❤️😉

full moon drowse
from sleepless tides of lunacy
to sun rising
