In Honour of the Moon

The sky is shattered glass in dead of night,

Crackling and pulsating with splintered light;

A mass of constellations burning bright

And scintillating in shimmering white,

In honour of the moon, Earth’s satellite.

My response to Jane Dougherty Writes Poetry challenge #50: Fifty

For the fiftieth challenge, Jane has given us some simple rules: a single stanza of five lines of ten syllables each. The five end of line words all rhyme, so Jane strongly suggests picking  a selection of rhyming words first. The image for this challenge is entitled ‘Constellations’.
