A lune is a sort of English-language variation on the haiku, meant to better render the tone of the Japanese haiku than the standard 5-7-5 format we all learned (and maybe loved) in elementary school. There are a couple of variants on the lune form, but just to keep things simple, let’s try the version developed by 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.
Slowly she spins,
Rhythmic movements across the floor,
Figures of eight.
The audience gazes,
Made speechless by the display
Of kitchen dancing.
