They

NaPoWriMo Day#4: 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.

 

Two shy faces

Talked from across the hall

It was love.

 

Two shaky hands

Squeezed their quaking hearts out

They were scared.

 

Two bold strides

Taken tentatively by trembling feet

They were brave

 

Two dazzling smiles

Which were impossible to hide

They were happy

 

Two silent tears

Fall when no one’s looking

They were memories.
