Longing for pillows
Clean new sheets, unmade bed
Sleep like death
A late lune for NaPoWriMo.
A lune is a sort of English-language variation on the haiku. There are a couple of variants on the lune form but I adapted the version of Jack Collum. His version of the lune involves a three-line stanza. The first line has three words. The second line has five, and the third line has three.
One can write a poem that consists of just one stanza, or link many lune-stanzas together into a unified poem. But I chose to write only a single lune.
I always feel sleepy nowadays. Now where’s that charm against sleepiness, when you need one?
