One could go on and on forever talking about anything, but I'll just touch on it here.

Lune Nonsense

Try these; they're fun. Similar to haiku, this poetry form is short and should focus on concrete imagery. But play with it how you like. Instead of keeping track of syllables, watch words. 3/5/3 is the simple format for the stanza.

Haze chokes me.
What happened to blue freedom
where birds soar?

Jalapeno stings my
chewed thumb, chapped lips, eyes;
more failed salsa.

Broken piano keys
remind me of unfinished songs
humming inside you.

Pizza bakes golden
while I hide away lonely,
waiting for you.

Smell dinner burn,
roasted like fiery potato bugs
camping last summer.
