Goddess of the Moon

Goddess of the Moon

salient arc at night
silver light
heralds moon’s return

soft light in brilliance
glowing orb
heavenly Selene

lunar light lingers
palest arc
last receding light


Yesterday’s prompt from napowrimo.net was to write a lune.  Mine just happens to have a lunar aspect to it.  In Greek mythology, Selene is the Goddess of the Moon.
Lune ~ three lines with a syllable count of 5-3-5, or a word count of 5-3-5 ~ also known as American haiku
