National Poetry Writing Month 2016

It begins! I am days away from finishing my graduate degree and have some bandwidth in my brain for delving into poetic expression. 
Join me on the NaPoWriMo 2016 Journey! 


For Day 1, I bring you the Lune, also called American Haiku. So, here’s both a Kelly Lune with a 5-3-5 syllable count  AND a Collom lune with a 5-3-5 word count.

Alarm clock
gone! no whimpering
late again.
Bird song shifts peaceful slumber
Blinking gritty eyes
Awake! Day dawns fairly surprised.
