but if I hung the moon . . .

Lune #8 of 25

Moonlit Night in Positano by Anita Rée – 1922-1925

if I hung the moon
you’d notice
my heart is there too

*A lune (rhymes with moon) is a very short poem. It has only three lines. It is similar to a haiku. A haiku has three lines, and it follows a 5/7/5 syllable pattern. The lune’s syllable pattern is 5/3/5. Since the middle line is limited to three syllables, it is often the shortest line of the three. This makes a lune curve a bit like a crescent moon.

For the next twenty-five days, except Saturdays and Sundays, I will share a lune with each of you. This is Lune #8 of this project.
