an object of wonder

her hair frazzled in wisps of clouds,
she whirls through the nightly sky,
her moon of a bosom glinting, an
illumination of the passing lives.

she whirls through the nightly sky
ever dreamy, in her every dream
of the enchanted orbs of her eyes.

her moon of a bosom glinting, an
evanescent sight of the heavens
I see, in the rifts of her movement, an

illumination of the passing lives.
she is but a miser’s thrift, an object
wandering (I wonder at) through the sky.

  1. HA, nice to see you; and thanks for writing in the Trimeric Form. You have written a vivid scene using an excellent photo as inspiration. Each stanza adds effective details.

      How about a “moonstruck poet” instead? Hey, when I was here earlier, I had no idea that you would so masterfully serve the parameters of both dVerse & Toads prompt; crazy good job!! I had t write two different poems to get it done .
