Writing Exercise – The Lune

The Lune

By Ashley Lister

No time for foreplay
I want you
Let’s get naked now

The lune, otherwise known as the American Haiku, was first created by the poet Robert Kelly.  Kelly, seemingly frustrated with the English interpretation of the traditional haiku, adapted the form to a 13-syllable poem with 5 syllables in the first line, 3 syllables in the second line and 5 syllables in the final line.

I like this form because, unlike he traditional haiku, there are no restrictions on content or subject. With a lune the poet can be serious or humorous, solemn or playful, abstract or concrete. As an exercise to get creative writing juices flowing, the lune is an ideal entry-level poetic form.

Inhaling your scent
Then tasting
Leaves me wanting more

As always, I look forward to seeing your poetry in the comments box below.

  1. Sex is the subject;
    Need a verb
    So many choices!
