Winning Poem

The Lune: According to The Teachers and Writers Handbook of Poetic Forms (1987), "is a short form invented and named by poet Robert Kelly in the 1960s out of a dissatisfaction with our Western use of haiku." To replace the haiku, he devised a 13-syllable poem written in 3 lines containing 5-3-5 syllables respectively, and not restricted by Japanese traditions. Any subject, any thought, is fair game. You may use any number of three line verses linked together as one poem as long as you adhere to the 5-3-5 syllable rule! Kelly borrowed the form's name from the French word for moon because its righthand edge resembles a crescent moon. This means you do NOT centre the text. I will post an example as soon as I am able. Love & blessings...Cherry
