Time-worn gratitude – Eugenia


A pearlescent moon cools the night

and paints the sky with silvered light. 

clouds drifting upon wisps of trails

and spirits sing as earth exhales.

Her ageless beauty still prevails

she shares wealth and love without fail

her stamina a fairy-tale

sunrise sunset silhouettes sail.

The morning sun wakes from the night

and paints the sky with golden light.

 A gander at me –

I enjoyed a dedicated career in the insurance industry for over 20 years being rewarded both professionally and personally. Now it’s time for me to follow my dreams by doing things I enjoy…spending time with family, learning, sharing, traveling, writing poetry and encouraging others to pursue their goals.

“The Earth does not belong to us: we belong to the Earth.” – Marlee Matlin

The Duo-rhyme, a poetic form created by Mary L. Ports, is a 10 or 12-line poem, with the first two and last two lines having the same rhyme scheme, and the center of the poem (lines #3 through #8 or #10) having their own separate monorhyme scheme.

Meter: 8 beats per line, written in iambic tetrameter (4 linear feet of iambic) Rhyme Scheme: 10-linea,a,b,b,b,b,b,b,a,a and 12-linea,a,b,b,b,b,b,b,b,b,a,a

  1. Your metered 8 beats per line gave your words a cosmic flow, and magically accrued depth as I float through your poem….and these two lines really caught my eye…..
