Prime the Pump for Poetry Month

Prime the Pump for Poetry Month:
Here's the prompt: Write an Englyn or two. This is a Welsh form. My niece Suzanne Iuppa, who lives in Wales, showed me this form, with modifications for our language. The Welsh language has a lot of innate rhyme in their words. So here is the directions: Englyn form is a tercet, with a total of 30 syllables, and an internal rhyme. The rhyme can be exact or slant.

This was accepted by Three line Poetry:

Sleep’s ragged breath ransacks our chilly room.
Full moon snagged in the sycamore’s branches.
Red star pulses on the radio tower.

M.J. Iuppa
