2016 NaPoWriMo *Day 1*

Elements of a life

Inside and outside
Find me there
Window of the soul.

Stand behind glass thoughts
Eyes opened to light.

I feel everything
Empath world
Close doors to the pain.

And now, our prompt (optional, as always). Today, I challenge you to write a lune. This is a sort of English-language haiku. While the haiku is a three-line poem with a 5-7-5 syllable count, the lune is a three-line poem with a 5-3-5 syllable count. There’s also a variant based on word-count, instead of syllable count, where the poem still has three lines, but the first line has five words, the second line has three words, and the third line has five words again. Either kind will do, and you can write a one-lune poem, or write a poem consisting of multiple stanzas of lunes. Happy writing!

Your words are stars and I humbly thank you for shining your light for me....
