Moon shimmies the water

Meandering along

Misty nights at shoreline

Magical starlight strolls

Midnight’s curfew calling

Moments  in time caught now

Moonbeams spill, dripping light

Linking with dVerse tonight for Meeting the Bar where the form is  “Pleiades” which  defined as  a  seven line poem with each line beginning with the same letter as the title and having six syllables in each line. The title must be of one word only. I am stretching myself to do this tonight…as I am not one who is so good about adhering…or attempting poetic forms!

 I might hate it. Can’t decide. Leaning toward hate. lol.

    Moonlight reflecting, rippling on water is such a magical thing. You’ve captured the moment well.

    I was riding my bike the other day near a river and I looked over where it looped and thought of meandering – such a good word. This poem took me back to that moment – thanks

    The first line makes me think of belly dancing, in light of which, I find the description to be perfect.
