Fall Lanturnes

I’ve been playing with a form called the Lanturne which was a prompt on Margo’s blog.  The form is five lines.  One syllable, two syllables, three, four, then one syllable again. 

leaves
blowing
in the wind,
yellow and red
fall.


wind
blows waves
through the trees,
spray of color
falls.


First
fall leaves
turning red;
summer heat can’t 
last.
