queen of sparkle
lady mighty mirror.
of silver luminescence
across the ocean.
set with you
my sterling sails
across a sea of night.
The word for the Quadrille today at dVerse is tinsel, is hosted by Mishj and made me moon-wild. Since today is Saint Lucy’s day I should probably have gone wild with the tinsel of Saint Lucia instead.

Oh how I love the voice and repetition of this poem…you can feel the admiration and how dear Luna is cherished
“sea of night” is a lovely ending
Oh, fantastic lines!
Wow, an ode to the mistress moon. I see her glowing, queen of sparkless in the night!
Fantastic alliteration here, Bjorn. Poets love the moon.
Imagining you reading this enchanting poem in my ear and swooning.
nothing as good as moon bathing to conjure a poem as lovely as this
Wow, this is a fantastic ode, Bjorn. 🙂
Holy shamoley, Björn. That is incredibly beautiful.
Fine work indeed, Bjorn! I esp liked the alliteration in the 3rd “Moon.” Very cool adoration. Thanks.
This poem screams to be read aloud.
All of it is wonderful, but ending with sailing across a sea a night is the icing on the cake.
Incredible as always with your micro-lines, thumping through my mind like a heartbeat shot through with quicksilver.
Wow!! Very nicely done🙂
Can i marry this poem? Luv this
P.S. HAPPY HOLIDAYS
Fantastic. I feel like I should take the poem to an Irish Pub, stand up on a chair, and recite it; so full of erotic whimsey and affable alliteration.
Moon, my glowing princess,
queen of sparkle duchess,
lady my matriarchal empress
Great to see the wonder of the moon all depicted by great lines befitting that of a fine lady
Ooooo I love this!
Lovely use of the word “tinsel”. I really enjoyed reading this poem.
To not be carried away by the “empress moon” would be to have a heart of stone: she is the “soft seductress” of our nights. You’ve given us a feast of beauty in 44 words, Bjorn.
I love that—also your very clever closing lines.
A flowing love poem. “Lady mighty mirror, tinsel-temptress”. Great alliteration for extra glow. The moon has you under her spell.
What wonderful sounds in this!
Nice use of alliteration, and joy to read aloud.
A wonderful poem. It feels great and we all can relate. There is only one moon for us all.
Björn, how can one not love this! Absolutely beautiful.
Love those last four lines.
A love song almost, the tinsel the moon casts ever allusive and glowing. Lovely words, Björn.
I enjoyed those 3 particularly, brilliant!
Bjorn, you can feel how this flowed from you, loved tinsel-temptress and sterling sails. The whole poem was magnificent and made me smile.
It is indeed, all these things!
Really love the ending of your poem. I’ve always loved moonlight. Setting sail across a sea of night with the moon – love that!
Next go-around … make me a tinsel temptress!!!
I love the assonance of the ‘ess’ ‘s in this – beautiful poem.
