Rondeau – Bedtime

April 18, 2009 § 2 Comments

sunriseMy weekend challenge to myself – try a new form with a specific rhyme and meter.  In addition, the prompt is to write about “an interaction.”




A drowsy sun, sunflower gold,

slips quietly into the fold

between the rim of earth and sky.

Soon, melon clouds are drifting by,

huddling close to fight the cold.


And as the indigo unfolds

revealing constellations bold,

Moon slides outside; the Sun glides by.

It’s time for bed.


Moon’s worshipers, both new and old,

inhale her breath: sweet, bitter, cold.

She winds her way across the sky

and eventually becomes quite high;
her silver tresses gleam like gold.

It’s time for bed.

    I’m always impressed at your productivity. And, quite frankly, a bit scared of this elf I should be listening to when I’m writing. I have a restraining order on that damn elf. The last time he was around, someone threatened to sue.
