Morning Moon

Morning moon waning after night
pearly beams of light
vanishing in brilliant sun rays
as dark becomes day
in the evenings a wayward breeze
shadows dance with leaves
as birds take roost in swaying trees
yearning arises once again
a cool caress upon my skin
pearly beams of light, as dark becomes day, shadows dance with leaves

Author’s Note: The form I used today is the Oviellejo, an Old Spanish verse form (derived from ovillo, a ball of yarn). A stanza consists of 10 lines, with a rhyme scheme of AABBCCCDDC. The second line of each rhyme scheme, Line 2,4,6, is a short line of up to 5 syllables. The last line is a “redondilla,” a “little round” that collects all three of the short lines.
