The lune is a form of poetry, originally created by English-speaking poets frustrated with the rules of the Japanese haiku. The common lune follows a defined structure either based on word count (3-5-3) or syllable count (5-3-5), the latter of which is used in the following poems. I have termed these "dilunes" because each work consists of two lunes separated by a word or short phrase running vertically between them.

About These Pieces

These pieces were created using words cut from the pages of an old dictionary. The dilunes do not exceed 6" in width or 2" in height.
