His Life, His Love: Sailor's Moon

Above a cloud, in soundless, still tumescence,
a goddess rests; below her is the sea.
A strip of it is rippling luminescence,
a path of light in night’s serenity.
A solitary boat now passes through
the lane of radiance.  One man regards
the sky and ocean, both a cobalt blue,
and ponders inspiration of the bards.

For what could man want more than such as this -
-the tranquilness of dark in Luna’s glow!
At times he longs to taste a woman’s kiss
though he embraced this life so long ago. . . 

His gaze is fixed on her who shines above. 
He chose the sea. . . and moon became his love.

I get so confused figuring out rhyme schemes in sonnets!...Can you tell me what type sonnet this is?...There are so many and this is a real beauty as usual from you...Yes, you did inspire me to rewrite 'Sea Gypsy'...the original was intended for Nette's contest so I looked at it again and added another verse...Congrats on another 1st place win my friend! - Tim

I love the moon, but would never trade my wife for anything else: moon, stars, ocean or all the earth. But, a sailor's life is a choice for many, as you so beautifully write! RAY
