Dazzling dusk – Nocturna

Sugar drops melt into white stars,

Set in the fabric of black velvet sky.

Flicker brilliantly, these crystal shards

Whisper lullabies to fleeting clouds.

They spin across the misty horizon,

Guarding heaven’s gates, so proud

The moon dubious in her absence.

Dazzling dusk has just begun,

Waiting to lose her innocence.

Dear Readers,

This style of poem is known as a Nocturna. It is a 9-line french style of poetry, based on the “night” theme, made up of the following rhyme scheme:

a b a c b c d b d 

In the olden days, it used to be recited in the form of prayers.

Hope you all enjoyed it and let me know what you think!
