Luna's Light - Constanza

A cobalt sky with stars so bright 
    Like dancing diamonds in array 
    Scattered across the Milky Way. 

And Luna with her silver light 
    Caresses every hill and tree 
    and sprinkles lights across the sea. 

Engaged with clouds in misted sight. . . 
    As she shares her equinox sky, 
    enchanted clouds soon drift on by 

Spreading shadows with glowing light. 
    A couple strolls nearby the sea; 
    lovers in silent reverie. 

A peaceful calm is here tonight
    A floral scent so sweet and fair 
    denotes that spring is in the air, 

And all is good, and all is right. 
    With grateful hearts they share their love . . .
    while gazing at the stars above. 

A cobalt sky with stars so bright 
And Luna with her silver light 
Engaged with clouds in misted sight . . .
Spreading shadows with glowing light. 
A peaceful calm is here tonight
And all is good, and all is right.

    Dear PS Members, I know my example poem for the Constanza has 6 stanzas plus the monorhyme but for Andrea's "Can you Constanza Contest" the limit is 5 stanzas with a sixth stanza being the monorhyme of the first lines of each stanza. I really look forward to helping Andrea judge this contest. Mahalo, Connie

    Beautiful Connie, like a great meal satisfies this fills me with knowing there are still parts of this universe that survive man's intemperate use of what was once so pristine. This form is fascinating too and I think you have created a masterpiece my dear! :) Love, Elizabeth

    Good piece of writing, Connie. You carry off well the personification of the moon. A peaceful and calming read. Interesting form, but I have to admit it's a bit above my station. Enjoy the contest with Andrea. :)

You had so many to choose from but the one I put at the contest page has always been very special to me. How many do you have? Also, I am happy to see you checked out my acrostic sonnet.
