Earth Glow

He’s a creature small and lowly. See him move along so slowly - an earthworm. He has no fins that he might swim, nor wings that wind might carry him. He’s earthbound. And yet there’s something you should know. God made him special; he can glow like *earthshine! *Earthshine is a newer word and synonymous to Earthlight, which is a natural phenomena of sun reflected off earth particularly on dark side of crescent moon. This form is a derivative of one called The Compound Word Verse

This is another gem. Beautifully written and informative . The concept , rhyming and flow are excellent, a hard task in this limited form. A super 7 on this one and fully expect it to place very high .

the earthworm is at the center stage-not a lowly creature-but a friend of man earth- shine is aptly used to depict its phosphorescence . "Earth glow" is most appropriate title . Love Andrea XXX rajat
