I
love
walking
at midnight
as moonlight shadows
dance on the inky blue ocean
and watch as they sparkle and shimmer like tiny stars,
pirouetting gracefully like prima ballerinas with the ocean as their stage 

9/3/19
Writing Challenge 1, September 2019 - Eight Line Form
Sponsor, Dear Heart - Wiishkobi Ode
Checked with PS Syllable counter 1,1,2,3,5,8,13,21

I'm so proud of this poem so it's also submitted to Caren Krutsinger's contest
Also submitted to Tania kitchin's contest as I think it is probably the best poem I have written this year and is currently number one in the best new poems list. I would love for it to be considered worthy enough for a trophy win and  I also want to submit it to soup for consideration in their anthology

We often go for midnight walks not usually along the beach but along the shore roads:-) Hugs Jan xx

This conjured up such a beautiful picture, Jan. I am not surprised that you were proud of it and congratulate you on its success. I'm sure that Brian would be delighted to 'air' it too on his fibonacci blog.
