Sun and Moon Crash (NaPoWriMo 2017, Day 8)

This post will serve prompts for both NaPoWriMo–Day 8, and TJ’s Household Haiku*.

“…our (optional) prompt. Today I’d like to challenge you to write a poem that relies on repetition. It can be repetition of a phrase, or just a word. Need a couple of examples? Try “The Bells” by Edgar Allen Poe, or Joy Harjo’s “She Had Some Horses”.”


If sun and moon crash

Blinding night with falling shards

We’ll dance on splinters


We’ll dance on splinters

Fallen shards, love reflected

Music of sun, moon


Night hold this sun, moon

Wind plays eerie tinkling chimes

Shadow frames Love’s face


Crashing notes ~ sun, moon

We dance amid fallen shards

Music splinters hearts


Heart’s music splinters

Sun and moon crashed with your death

Dancing blind ‘mid shards

  1. Goodness gracious ! I am taken away by the sun and moon crashing , the dancing, the shards and the music, the love and the splinters! Marvelous times a zillion!


  2. I enjoy how you work your haikus like this RL. I always have to read them over a few times to make sure I didn’t miss anything. They always blend so seamlessly into one poem.
