the sun plays hide and seek

Lune #17 of 25

the crazy wind blows
and sun hides
behind the shadows


*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 #17 of this project.

I’ve bitten my tongue–
can’t express
what I want to say

the perfect day to be laid out on the grass

look at that little heart
painted carefully on an
inanimate object . . .
I bet it doesn’t know
how to handle all that
blood pumping in one place
begging to get out.

do you think it wants to
trade with us?
does it feel?
will it be loyal?
could it break hearts?

look at it,
isn’t it the perfect day
to be laid out on the grass
waiting for someone to
come along and
rip that pumping muscle
clean from its chest?

maybe it’ll get up
before it’s too late.
it looks smarter
than we could ever be.
