Magic of the Night

I sit and breathe the magic of the night
The rustling of the trees as they sway
Black skies dappled with brilliant star light

My inner being becomes calm and right
Allowing my troubles to float away
I sit and breath the magic of the night

On the horizon a half moon shines bright
Reflecting on the water in the bay
Black skies dappled with brilliant star light

Watching as large nocturnal birds take flight
My eyes following as they fly away
I sit and breathe the magic of the night

A single butterfly comes within sight
On a backdrop of velvet it does play
Black skies dappled with brilliant star light

For some the evening is a place of fright
As for me I do not see it that way
I sit and breathe the magic of the night
Black skies dappled with brilliant star light

    THis is equally attractive as a Pantoum. Very musical. The enchanting beauty of the night is beautifully pictured. Nice work. Hugs to you Richard!

    I get so damn stoked every time I see that you have written a villanelle, because you wrote your very first one for my contest and it WON and was AMAZING! Just like you. ;) I have missed your poetry sooooo much, but I love the fact that you have still kept in contact with me during my absence on Facebook. I love hearing from you always. Hugs! :)

    Absolutely fine set of lines here! I embrace the night WHOLLY. Especially when I'm driving...wonderfully done in its setting & tone!

    I used to like night driving but now it gives me a headache. Thanks for the visit Drake.

    Indeed-- the final solitude and peace at the end of a busy day. I love your two keys meters in this Villanelle.."I sit and breather the magic of the night...black sky's dappled with brilliant star light"-- our Creator showing off again :)

    Richard...I read this when you first posted. It is beautiful in ever way...very calming and satisfying...magical. I love the night too...There isn't quite anything like going for a ride at night with the window down and the music playing. Beirut is magical at night. Lights as far as the eye can see. Lights of fishing boats and yachts on the sea and then you keep going up to the twinkling lights on surrounding hills. Your poem captured the magic well...the water..the stars..stillness..magic! :)

    Your city sounds beautiful. If you write a terzanelle let me know, I am happy to make suggestions. Becca Debbie and Russell really helped me out.

    Richard....I really want to do a terzanelle....:( I just can't get my head around it...It's like a Ottima Riva, right? I mean...you're so good at it. Any pointers? This form you did well in...What's new? ;)

    Thanks, most of what I write just pors out of me. This form really stretched me I had to make very specific choices to conform with the form. I am pleased you like it.
