A New place to play... Celebrate Gratiteusday...
Last Tuesday's prompt was ...Things I Am Grateful For In Nature Prompt #3

I'm grateful for many of natures things
the birds, the bee's... well all creatures with wings
The way the wind whispers through pine trees
moon rise, sun set, they never displease...
the horse in the meadow, the fresh mountain stream,
the flowers showing off first signs of spring
the juice of an orange, the smell of a peach
the hummingbirds that fly just out of reach
You could say I'm grateful for all natures ways
Appreciating them all for all of my days

Today's Prompt is Kyrielle

A kyrielle is made of quatrains that rhyme. Each stanza (that is a quatrain) has a line that repeats, so a line from a previous stanza. That line usually (but does not necessarily have to) be the last line in the stanza.
Each line in the poem has eight syllables. There is no limit to the number of stanzas. Usually there are three or more stanzas.
Any type of rhyme scheme can be used. OURS IS...

When quietness surrounds my home

Each day I rise before the sun
the moon and stars decent begun
the perfect time to be alone
when quietness surrounds my home

My coffee cup is emptied twice
I try to make my words precise
Then check to see what flowers grown
when quietness surrounds my home

Birds break the silence with sweet song
feelings of peace are very strong
whispering winds ring chimes of chrome
when quietness surrounds my home
