Visit Tricia at The Miss Rumphius Effect for instructions.
The challenge this week is the Lune:
The lune is a haiku variation invented and named by poet Robert Kelly. The lune,
so called because of how the right edge is bowed like a crescent moon, is a
thirteen syllable form arranged in three lines of 5 / 3/ 5 respectively.(Adapted
from The Teachers & Writers Handbook of Poetic Forms.)
Here is my first quick response on a topic that seems impossible to escape for the last few weeks:
I am so very aware each day as I work with 7th graders:
It's all about me
As I think of my blogname and mourn again the physical absence of my father in my life, this more poetic topic yields:
Daddy's roses bloom --
I long for him still!
