Excitement to Execution

Fifth day of this year’s National Poetry Writing Month. Todays’ prompt is “Lune”. 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. Happy writing! ” Here’s my first attempt at a Lune:


I am participating in A to Z Challenge 2014 where we write 26 posts in a month each day on one word from A to Z barring Sunday's. Today's word is "E".

I am conceived
out of love, not fear
excited they heaved

I am shaped
deep inside a hollow space
I am weaved

have webbed fingers
my organs grow big too
also fingerprints do

about five inches
my mother gets a clue
cartilage also grew

eyebrows and eyelids
my mother feels my kick
she gets crick

pound and half
now I am not weak
they check graph

open and close
I try to follow light
with my sight

layers of fat
are filling me out
making me stout

feet below ground
hounded and battered I’m slay
an infant lay

herebelow are my friends and co-bloggers who are also participating in NapoWrimo:

    1. yes Hrishi it sometimes gets the better of us while writing on such a subject, but it is very satisfying to make an effort, however little it may be, to spread the cause.
