Variant Lune

Day 1

While the haiku is a three-line poem with a 5-7-5 syllable count, the lune is a three-line poem with a 5-3-5 syllable count. There’s also a variant based on word-count, instead of syllable count, where the poem still has three lines, but the first line has five words, the second line has three words, and the third line has five words again.

First post for national poem writing month guys. Enjoy! 😀

I couldn’t wait for tomorrow,

Said I would,

but couldn’t wait till tomorrow.

 

So I start my path,

Commencing once again,

as the year before this.

 

I begin my path, anxious,

ready to kickoff.

Ready as I’ll ever be.

 

I said I would wait,

wait till tomorrow,

but I break my rules.

 

I break my rules again,

now,not then.

What matters, now, not then.
