Moonlight Magic For Friend Konstantin

Rating: 5.0
Moonlight magic

cherry blossoms pink and white.
springtime beauty show.
satisfies my appetite..

a beautiful sight.
softly the breezes blow
thus creating tricks of light.

at night the moonlight
adds to my delight
the blossoms seem to glow.

it is my birthright
I can come and go.
I choose to visit by night.

to enjoy the sight.
wander to and fro
in ecstasies of delight.

night: my favourite
why, because I know
the cherry blossoms pink and white
will be bathed in silver light.

Tankanelle a form devised by Board Flak
