NaPoWriMo Day 1: A Lune in the Mountains

Printer-friendly version
Unlikely Stairs

Every day but one
was sunny
Guess which one I chose?

Fog or smog, is there
much difference
when the flowers bloom?

Steps taken toward sky
Weary legs
carry me up, up

To hidden places.
Lake below,
gray sky high above

Dark stone, bright walls—
our journey to

Jeongbangsa Temple

I was given a prompt to write a poem called a "lune", which is similar to the 5-7-5 syllable pattern of a haiku. A lune, however, can be 5-3-5 syllables or words. As you can tell, I went for syllable count.

Bonus: photos from my recent hike that inspired this.
