Magpie Tomato Lune
iron vines cling tight
liberates spent fruit
Shout out to Magpie Tales for the picture prompt. Check out the link for creative takes on the picture.
Thank you to Robert Lee Brewer of Poetic Asides for his description of the lune. “The lune is also known as the American Haiku. It was first created by the poet Robert Kelly (truly a great poet) and was a result of Kelly's frustration with English haiku. After much experimentation, he settled on a 13-syllable, self-contained poem that has 5 syllables in the first line, 3 syllables in the second line and 5 syllable in the final line.”
