Jue Ju

The Sunday Challenge at Real toads is for writing a quatrain in the ancient Chinese from known as the Jue Ju.  In its English form, it has four lines that may be unrhymed or couplets.  Each line has five words, and its subject is suggestive of erotic love.

The crescent moon brightly smiles

Looking down upon our love

As her silver light wanes

Our passion grows in intensity

Be sure to visit Real Toads for more poetry.

  1. Building this around the moon’s smile is inspired, Teresa, and the waning and waxing fit perfectly. Great photo, too.
