Into Night’s Dwelling

In trance I feel,
when day and night meet.
Sky kissing the earth,
showering its eternal love.
Sun and moon on my sides,
one crimson red and other pearly white.

Songs of birds,
concealed by chirping crickets.
Nocturnal flora opens eyes,
welcomes night with a delight.

Sun dips in ocean,
like a mermaid, swims away.
Moon rises above, beyond the cloudy blankets.

Day to night and night to day,
I am in awe of nature’s glory,
just waiting, to be written in a story.

I’ll Never be Your First Love: Mirrored Refrain

In my darkest hours,
You hold me above,
And I know this,
I’ll never be your first love.

I remember you,
Like a tender kiss,
I’ll never be your first love,
And I know this.
With your every word,
My hopes fly like a dove,
And I know this,
I’ll never be your first love.

May you rise high and flourish,
Your success will be my peace,
I’ll never be your first love,
And I know this.

Sun Dance: Villanelle

Over the horizon sunrays dance,
sparkle like jewels,
granting a new chance.

In the embrace of an eternal romance,
feeding light to deepest pools,
over the horizon sunrays dance.

A gambogian hue in blue expanse
spreads warmth in cerulean cool,
granting a new chance.

As the day enhance,
and the beauty rules,
over the horizon sunrays dance.

Everything’s in trance
nature in their awe, drools,
granting a new chance.

Sun’s loving glance,
upon shimmering fields of cotton wool,
over the horizon sunrays dance,
granting  a new chance.

A Villanelle is a nineteen-line poem consisting of a very specific rhyming scheme: aba aba aba aba aba abaa.The first and the third lines in the first stanza are repeated in alternating order throughout the poem, and appear together in the last couplet (last two lines).

Wish of a Fish:Nonet

A fish inside the aquarium,
looks outside ,with its eyes spread wide,
chirping birds, glittering sun,
all having so much  fun.

Wishes ,she is out,
out in the sea,
to explore,

A nonet has nine lines. The first line has nine syllables, and each line after that has one less, until the end is reached with only one syllable.

The Castle: A Rondelet

The castle
Cloaked in snowy fur
The castle
Glistening under sun with razzle-dazzle
Guarded by knights of pine fir
Calmly waiting for her
The castle.

In Her Own Dream World

In her own dream world she lives,
with the love of her life.
Where all seasons arrive,
everything beams and survives.

Perfect to the core,
full of happiness and hope.
Each moment to adore,
just wondrous to absorb.

A carefree ambiance,

magical doors to heaven.
Splendid radiance so pleasant,
countenance of moony crescent.

Her arms around him,
it's not any whim,
this is the mere essence of her existence,
for in her own dream world she lives.
