Hope your week is going great for each and every one of you.
Today I am doing a new form of poetry, well, it’s new to me anyway. The things I’m learning in this monthly poetry challenge!
The type of poetry is called “lune form“. The type I am doing was developed by Jack Collum. It’s a 3 line stanza. The first line has 3 words, the second has 5 words, the third has 3 words. It’s based on the Haiku. One can write a poem using just one stanza, or string a bunch of stanza’s together to make the poem.
What I have done is string a bunch of stanza’s to create my poem about wolves. Anyone that knows me well, knows I love wolves. They are such misunderstood and intelligent creatures.
I hope you enjoy my poem, and please leave comments! I love them!
Intelligent eyes shine
Endangered in many areas now
Unnecessary war fought
Trying to survive
In hostile man made environment
Is so unfair
Man could learn
From the ways of packs
Love, loyalty, care
Many different colors
Belonging to the same family
Acceptance is there
Each knows place
In the pack for efficiency
And for survival
They work together
In a tightly knit group
Wonderment to see
Howls sound out
Loud and eerie to humans
Talking between packs
Alpha male, female
Breeds to continue the lineage
Big happy family
Humans need humanity
When they deal with wolves
They aren’t enemies

Aw, coming from you I take that as a great compliment. Thank you tiny.
As you can see, I’m still trying to catch up. I loved the poem and enjoyed learning about the style. You did it well. I love all animals and hate how we have made their lives so hard. We can’t be human if we are not humane. Wolves are spectacular creatures with wonderful souls.
I love wolves so much. they are so misunderstood. Thanks Marlene. hugs my friend.
