Oviellejo #13

on the cusp

even when the moon’s waxing full
I feel her pull

a hint of stardust in the wind
drawing me in

the heat of day distilled in dew
a magic brew

to fill my empty cup anew
with dreams that linger into day
to light my path along the way
I feel her pull, drawing me in, a magic brew

The second line of each rhyme scheme, Line 2,4,6, is short line of up to 5 syllables. The last line is a “redondilla,” a “little round” that collects all three of the short lines.


New Moon

shadow moon
dressed in black
let the fiddler play a
lively lick…we will sleep
beneath the purple diamond
misted sky, dreaming

March Pi-Archimedes #20

equinox

it’s all about
balance
north meets south, daylight
meets
moonlit night, wormy and full,
spring on the cusp, blooming, winter nipping her heels

January Biolet #22

her brilliance cannot be muted
luminous mistress of the night
cloud swells magnify her light
even shaded, she blushes red
luminous mistress of the night
her brilliance cannot be muted

Lunacy

there’s a green cheese moon
high above a flat earth…cows
and cats with fiddles
