Moonlight face-timing

(a Jue Ju poem)

 

lost gaze - moon pale - Li Bai scenes

blank stare - night bare - drin king sins

name blink - bright shine - hope ful hymn

face looms - sweet tears - mo bile screens

      so much tradition, a lovely poetic form
      we ruin it in translation, but hey
      we can't all learn Mandarin.. lol
      so glad you enjoyed it dear Poet, thank you!

        L.B. I have to say I am not familiar with this form but thank you for introducing me to it. Beautiful.

          yeah I thought a poet of your merit would enjoy it
          it is wonderfully tricky
          hard to get right, if you want to take it seriously
          but a lot of fun trying..
          thank you!

          Elated by fine collection of words. Nicely composed.

            thank you! dear Poet
            (Li Bo/Bai/Po
            is one of my absolute favourites
            and this is a modern twist
            as reply, to his best known poem
            glad you enjoyed my effort)
