So the prompt literally dropped my jaw. A Lune. I had to write a Lune. What is a Lune?! Well, ‘A lune is a sort of English-language variation on the haiku, meant to better render the tone of the Japanese haiku than the standard 5-7-5 format we all learned (and maybe loved) in elementary school. There are a couple of variants on the lune form, but just to keep things simple, let’s try the version developed by Jack Collum. His version of the lune involves a three-line stanza. The first line has three words. The second line has five, and the third line has three. You can write a poem that consists of just one stanza, or link many lune-stanzas together into a unified poem.’ NaPo made it a bit easier for me to understand, thankfully. So here’s my very first attempt at it.
Love costs much
Feelings, thoughts, emotions, people, time
Worthy or not?
