Yes, it’s April Fool’s Day, but it is also  the first day of NaPoWriMo, where participants are asked to write a poem a day.  This is the fourth year I’ve participated. Today’s prompt is to write a lune, a three-line poem with a 5-3-5 syllable count.  In addition, most days I’ll also be following the WordPress one-word prompt, which today is the word “colorful.”

Three Lunes

I search for yellow,
whereas blue
comes looking for me!

Life paints a black frame
around white
to draw our eyes there.

That fuchsia flower
in the pond
floats on life and death.


Three Loons

The crying of loons
in chill air
turns the water blue.

    Brave you to take on a whole month of this 🙂 I love the sound of loons calling. It really is the sound of the great north-lands. At night, when they call across a lake deep in the woods, it’s a sound that haunts your dreams.

      Okay, Marilyn. Time to pay the piper. What state do you live in and near what town? If you don’t want to answer here, e-mail me. I seem to be not only face-blind but also location-blind. I know you’ve told me before, but I always think of you in Maryland!!!
