In the Deep

mauled beneath the skin
faintest touch –
sugar glas fractures

rusty shadow play;
tragedy
left to rot in you

(5-3-5 syllabic Kelly Lune)

    • If you’re interested in such things, you might want to check out my “Haiku/Senryu” page and the book referenced there (though I’m not sure my description is entirely clear…needs work). Yet another way to think about short poem forms in English.

      • oh i love Haiku – i do them once in a while… just love the idea of packing huge things into small words. 😉 the kelly lune was so intriguing because it has an even harder syllable count (5-3-5 isn’t much) – and i love challenges. heh
        thank you so much, i’ll definitely check it out!
