Spring Afternoon at the Lake

Wind
ripples, 
Sun scatters 
light like diamonds 
across the water 

Birds  
glide through 
clear skies and 
sing perched in tree 
branches filled with buds 

Blue 
heron 
swoops down and 
regally stands 
at guard by the shore 

An arun is a fifteen-line poem in three sets of five lines. Each set of five lines follows the same syllable structure: starting with one syllable, increasing by one more syllable in each line.

  1. I used this same form yesterday! You have described the lake so beautifully – I especially like the last stanza with the blue heron standing guard.
