Under a Wistful Moon, a poem

I was tasked to write another fourteen line poem, but this time with a catch.  You cannot use the letter ‘e’ in the poem at all.  While I was writing, I could not help but wonder how I got into this mess… but after reading the poem upon completion, I have to say I’m glad I tried 🙂

 

Under a Wistful Moon

wistfulmoon

 

Wistful moon,
look down upon your fragrant shadows
in dazzling visions that tango
across our moonlit plains
rows of silky, sloping stalks
tilt longingly in oncoming winds
dipping and soaring, as if in a stupor,
drinking in a fountain of light
from a thousand distant stars.
I watch, without a sound,
and a soothing song stirs within my soul
I allow its hymn to touch my lips
and slowly drip against rays of moonlight
I sing, grass sways, and a tranquil moon looks on.

      I was surprised I could do it. Every time I tried to write “the” kept popping up 🙂 Thank you.

    Wow, very impressive! Who knew that a little rule like leaving out an “e” could have such major implications. I’m glad you wrote it too 😉
