Crescent Moon

Theme : Poetry Types 
Day 1 – A for Acrostic
Day 2 – B for Blitz 



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


Crescent Moon
Descending from jeweled midnight blue, sashays a crescent moon,
Elegant shimmers of silver crown, makes the grey 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 tigers growl
Gemini sparkles high above, underneath, the Lions prowl,
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.
