Lune Poem

The lune is a short form of poetry invented by the poet, Robert Kelly. He was dissatisfied with the Western ways of writing haiku and came up with this method. It is a 13 syllable form arranged in 5-3-5 syllables in 3 lines. Here is an example:

Gold shines on the sea

invites me

to dance with the sun
