The Lighter Side of JzB

Every day visits*
From Moose, Goose, and Orb Weaver
All seized by Haiku

"Why moose and goose?" you may ask. Back on 2/04/13 Pirate wrote a haiku with an elk in it, and I responded with
one with a moose and then included him every day. A few days later in comments Mystic asked "Where's the goose?"
So I started including her with this post on 2/07. A week later on the 14th, Mark Readfern
asked for and received a spider. The rest is history.

*Well, most days, anyway. Grant me a bit of poetic license.

Some Poetic Lunacy

Visiting the FSF Midnight entries, I found a very ambitious entry by ninotaziz, where she composed a haiku that also fits the form of Collom's lune structure. I had no idea what this was, but she provided a link to Thursday's dVerse Poets post, where all is explained.

In short, named for the poets who devised them, we have two varieties of lune, English language haiku derived verse forms.
- a 5-3-5 syllabic Kelly lune, and
- a 3-5-3 word Collom lune.

Here a some attempts at both forms.  Kelly lunes are deliberately crescent shaped, while Collum lunes seem to my eye to be gibbous.

Update: Belatedly I see, alas, the link widget expired yesterday.   Oh, well.

                        There are two kinds of
Lunes I see
                         Let us share them both

Lune and Lune
They're an oddly mismatched pair
For our sharing

                At midnight lunar
Crescent shines
                Light with no color

~  ~ 

The midnight moon
Now waxing gibbous far above
Casts gray light
