Todays Prompt is finish this line with a Minute

Today we are doing the finish this line prompt. The rules are you must use this as the first line in your write. For a bit of a twist today we ask that everyone use the Minute form as well....
The Minute Poem is a poem that follows the "8,4,4,4" syllable count structure. It usually has 3 stanzas that are exactly the same. So: 8,4,4,4; 8,4,4,4; 8,4,4,4 syllables.

A traditional Minute Poem has 12 lines total. It has 60 syllables. It is written in a strict iambic meter. The rhyme scheme is as follows: aabb, ccdd, eeff.

The line is ...The moon-glow softly lit the clouds... OURS IS ....


The moon-glow softly lit the clouds
a lunar shroud
the nights beauty
for us to see

The garden where magic resides
love does abide
treasures we find
presence of mind

Here as the night glow gently sways
the magic stays
the moon glow sighs
Sun's on the rise

Many Thanks to Penny and Helena for joining in and helping us with lines and words for the past few day's worth of prompts... as always you all inspire us in ways we treasure !!
