Short Journeys to Heaven (in Poetic Form)

Going back to my love for condensed poetry form once again, I have decided to write a sequence of lunes today. A lune is an adaptation of the haiku to the English language, and I have tried my hand at both versions of the form, the Robert Kelly (5-3-5) and the Jack Collom (3-5-3). And here they are:

dancing on the moon
one more step
towards completion.

at twilight
etched on the skyline –
devotion.
