Month 5:8 “Moon of the Magnolias”

“Moon of the Magnolias”
(revised 25 May 2011)

Heart murmurs
in panorama, vista
of trespassed grasses.
Petal fall — layering percale
damp from rain (flooding locks, levees,
remnant culverts). Cultivate, cultivate
tresses of Mayo’s lasses.
Yews shall layette the
pulsing furls.

What is a SELENE?   A poetic form invented by Therese L. Broderick (this blogger) which waxes and wanes — like Selene, the Moon —  in line lengths and in terminal vowel pitches. For a more detailed explanation, see this blog’s entry for “Month 5:7.”
