fireflies and stars

Firefly twinkle and glows
Soft breeze in bamboo grove blows
The stars look down at them
Musing if earth is mirroring them

Rules of a Quatrain:
Did you notice that a quatrain is formed by two rhyming couplets? Easy! This pattern is called a a b b. The first line rhymes with the second (sky and by) and the third line rhymes with the fourth line (edge and ledge). Other quatrain patterns are a b a b,
a b b a, and a b c b.


Whether the Weather Be…


In the beginning, there was icy storm.
The people prayed and could not keep warm.
After that, there was foggy light
that waxed and waned through the day and night.
In the end, there were clouds that dreamed
of raining on Paris until it gleamed.
