Starlight Dancing

First attempt at a Quatern

http://www.shadowpoetry.com/resources/wip/quatern.html

technically not quite right – need to work on the syllable count, but cool to learn about a new form (at least new to me)

In the starlight I see dancing
shades of silken blue and green
poets chancing on the darkness
wishing for the words come falling

closing eyes to pain and sadness
in the starlight I see dancing
smallest lights that draw us closer
hear the heaven’s chorus calling

bringing nothing in my hands
eyes raised to the moonlit night
in the starlight I see dancing
synapse follow nerves go prancing

joining in I write with finger
poised above what clouds have woven
symphony of moons enhancing
in the starlight I see dancing

    Hi Dee – you always introduce me to new writing ideas – will google Quatern after this! It had a perfect rhythm of dancing – a 4/4 piece!Beautiful imagery though. I love the idea of falling words. Thank you as ever for your visit and comments – never say never to that cup of tea! Jae

    thank Jae – the key is the first line is repeated as the second line in the second stanza, repeated as the third line in the third stanza and as the fourth line in the fourth stanza. πŸ™‚

      It’s intriguing to have the concept of the poem and for me, that usually means more of a stream of consciousness kind of thing, and then try to make it something beautiful within the structure, is interesting. It makes me be more disciplined which has never been my strong suit lol
