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).

  2. like a breath of fresh air that bit of sun that finds us...finds nature and brings new life...
