Nature's Way Constanza Sol puts to sleep the hills with light while gloaming sheds all fading rays and brilliant colors change to greys when shadows darken them with night. The ocean turns from bondi blue to deeper shades of cobalt hue. Returning birds to boughs, a sight, singing melodies before sleep. In flocks they fly, their perch to keep, as twilight captures them in flight. Then comes quiet hours for romance and cheek to cheek, young lovers dance. While Luna tests our will, our might to keep control of passion’s love, with silver fingers from above when rising slowly to her height. To wee hours the poet will write until he glimpses dawn’s first light. Luna begins to fade from sight. Then all the birds begin to sing which conjures up the feel of spring. Sol’s rise again, conquers the night. Birds leave their limbs to welcome day and trees commune in their sweet way. Sol puts to sleep the hills with light when shadows darken them with night. Returning birds to boughs, a sight, as twilight captures them in flight. While Luna tests our will, our might when rising slowly to her height. Luna begins to fade from sight. Sol’s rise again, conquers the night. 4/16/2015

Virtuoso rhyming with lovely imagery. Tough to do. Don't try this at home alone...not recommended for the novice. Beautiful penning Connie.

Thank you Constance. With the layout like I have it it makes it obvious that there are two poems contained within the Constanza form. I am happy you like my form. Hugs, Connie

Wow Connie I'm back to read this stunning poem and see you have made the form even more challenging with an eight line monorhyme. I adore Autumn its my favourite season too:-) I'm adding it to my faves and I may be tempted to try a second attempt at writing for the contest!:-) hugs jan xx

Thank you so much my friend. The secret is to use a simple word in the monorhyme that has many words that rhyme with it otherwise it becomes quite difficult. I know it is not an easy form to write in. Many won't even attempt it, but some love the challenge. I so appreciate the Fave! Thank you very much. : ) xxoo P.S. The Constanza form calls for at least 5 stanzas but more than five are fine.

Thank you very much Emile. I often get to enjoy the dawn which is why I write about it so often. The moon also shares such beauty over the ocean, especially when full, that the lines form themselves. I always appreciate your thoughtful comments Emile. Aloha, Connie
