Those Eyes

Those Eyes

( A Terzanelle Poem)

.

.

One look into her eyes, I know not where I went.

Those sparkling jewels are wide windows to her soul.

There is no part of her that is more heaven sent.

.

And searching in those orbs to find love is my goal,

That I might see the fire there that burns for me.

Those sparkling jewels are wide windows to her soul.

.

And what more happy true love finding could there be?

To shelter in the essence of that shining light,

That I might see the fire there that burns for me.

.

In evening time, that is the prayer I speak at night,

To be forever lost in deep pools of her eyes,

To shelter in the essence of that shining light.

.

In vision-lock my eloquence sinks into sighs.

I kissed away tear drops that make my heavy heart race

To be forever lost in deep pools of her eyes.

.

In those marvelous moonbeams that glow through her face,

One look into her eyes, I know not where I went.

I kissed away tear drops that make my heavy heart race.

There is no part of her that is more heaven sent.

.

Author Notes
A woman’s eyes captivate me. They can entrance me. I can get lost in them.

I wrote this Poem after reviewing the poem, Fading Memories by Gary D. Harding. That inspired me to write this one, as I was intrigued by the style.

This is a Terzanelle, My first to be exact. I’m really not sure about it. So please feel free to give me some constructive pointers.
A  Terzanelle uses the three line Tercet stanza as th foundation to the format. It then takes a hop-scotch approach to rhyme and refrain. The middle line of each stanza is repeated as the third line of the next, until you get to the concluding envoi. That uses the first and third line of the first stanza blended with the last rhyme pattern. This creates a complex rhyme scheme.
The Rhyme Scheme is (a-B-A, b-C-B, c-D-C, d-E-D, e-F-E, f-A-F-A). The capital letters indicate the lines the repeat.
The poem is written in Iambic Hexameter
