Inky black cold
blankets the white snowy ground
howling wind protests -
Where’s the moon
quiet behind the clouds as
shadows roll by.
The fire glowed
warm bodies licked the cold
behind closed doors.
The form that DVerse Poets’ Pub features today is La Lune. It is inspired by the haiku and has either of these patterns: the 5-3-5 syllabic pattern, or the 3-5-3 word pattern. I opted for the latter. I had nothing in mind until I went outside to get a package from the UPS man. The first lines described what I saw, while the rest were added to make a little story. My husband specially liked the last stanza.
Do visit the pub for more poetry.
