National Poetry Month…When Words Become Heartbeats

First Day of National Poetry Month is to write a lune…a three-line poem with a 5-3-5 syllable count. There’s also a variant based on word-count, instead of syllable count, where the poem still has three lines, but the first line has five words, the second line has three words, and the third line has five words again.

 

 

prolix pleading of innocent prose
judge’s sentence…fifty
convicted of homicide by tongue
