Also known as "The English Language Haiku", this form was created by Robert Kelly, a Professor of Literature at Bard College who was seeking an alternative to the common place 5-7-5 syllable count of the of the English Haiku. The Lune comes closer to the brevity of the Japanese Haiku in size, but drops many of the restrainsts commonly associated with the Haiku.
The Lune gave birth to another form the Jack Collom lune.
