Crescent Moon | Cinq Trois DecaLa Rhyme | Poem about Nature

Crescent Moon

Descending from jeweled midnight blue sashays a crescent moon,
Graceful shimmers of the silver crown, make hiding shadows swoon,
Besotted twilight whispers a song, into the silent night,
Settled on brown mushrooms, are crickets watching the charming sight,
Afar howls a raucous coyote, startling a hooting owl,
Splashing bright stars in crystal streams, playfully the Tiger growls
Gemini sparkles high above, underneath, the Lion prowls,
Bugs and bees, Toads and trees, swirl and twirl to harmonious tune
Riding on tangerine rays, sparrows commence their daily flight
Away she walks the moony beauty, waking up sleepy fowls.

I love watching the crescent moon, against the deep blue sky and dark shadows of the trees. Little Venus, the forever companion of the Moon, shining brightly next to it – this is one of my favorite night views. Today’s poetry form for A to Z challenge is CinqTroisDecaLaRhyme
