Moon Kiss

Whale on oceans surface with full moon

Moon Kiss

-Linda Lee Lyberg

When the moon kisses the sea
The waters are peacefully still
And night becomes so bright.

The stars all make their plea
We must shine on at our will
When the moon kisses the sea.

 

The whales all sing with glee
As mother moon’s sonnet fills
And night becomes so bright.

 

The night birds fly and soar free
To dance to the sonnet’s trill
When the moon kisses the sea.

 

The ship takes shelter in the lee
And slows to behold the thrill
And night becomes so bright.

 

Then all the colorful fishes flee
And chase the swimming krill
When the moon kisses the sea
And night becomes so bright.

  1. I hadn’t thought of the moon kissing the sea before, but now that you mention it I won’t forget it. I like how you added three rhyme words into this version of the villanelle rather than two. I think that was an interesting modification. I may try it myself in a future villanelle now that I see that as a possibility.
