NaPoWriMo Day 4: Prompt-ly

I didn’t think I’d be prompted by NaPoWriMo’s daily prompts but, indeed, today’s I especially like: writing a “lune,” a three line stanza reminiscent of haiku but not forcing our non-syllabic language into syllabic form so natural for Japanese. Instead of the 5-7-5 syllable count, lune uses a 3-5-3 word count. And since that reminds me a bit of Wallace Stevens’ poem, a slant allusion to the red wheelbarrow.

Like a child first seeing

a red wagon.
