I’m pleased at how many of you tried out this form. It’s not an easy one to turn into a poem that flows well, but you managed it 🙂
New theme tomorrow. A restful one as I’m battling with the hated promotion today and tomorrow.

Louise’s poem has elements of the harbinger, written in true fantasy style.
Mark of Moonlight – Fantasy Raconteur
Peter’s poem reads like the start of a folk legend that cries out for the whole story to be written. There is a full version of the story on his blog. Maybe he could post the link in the comments below? I can’t find it.
Ken’s poem isn’t so much a message as a portent of disaster. Chilling.
Kat and Janice are on a similar wavelength. Moons with messages.
Blame it on the Moons | like mercury colliding…
The Crow always complains about how difficult it was to write the poem, and invariably turns in something complex and darkly beautiful.
trilune (20160810) – Words and Feathers
Merril’s poem makes me think of the posters of trips to Mars I found recently on wiki. Strange and otherworldly.

Sarah’s poem is truly gorgeous. I’m pleased she came up with something so exquisite since she came up with the name of this form.
Phylor, who managed to catch up on the tilus challenge and write a rather lovely poem on the three moons theme, a trilune in free verse 🙂

Janice’s three moons carry a message we don’t seem to be hearing very well.
A ballad-style contribution from Damien, who managed to combine plumbing with poetry.
And a late entry from Kerfe, assuming I was going to be as late getting this post together as I often am. As often happens with late entries, this one is worth waiting for;

Hi Jane and everyone, here is the link to the full story/ballad/you name it: https://peterbouchier.wordpress.com/english-essays-and-poems-2/night-of-three-moons/
Thanks Peter. I know you sent me the link, but I can’t remember where.
I think it is in the replies to your original challenge post.
I’d have thought so too, but I can’t see it.
Very well then, it must have vanished in the haze of the night of three moons…
Or it’s playing hide and seek with me 🙂
Sounds like a new challenge 😉
Could be a new poem.
Thank you, Jane. It was a lovely prompt, and you’ve created a lovely form. I’m looking forward to tomorrow’s challenge, and hope today goes well for you!
These were extraordinarily beautiful. Jane, you’ve created a lovely poetry form. Well done to you and to all who participated here!
Pats on the back all round 🙂
I enjoyed all of these. I found it difficult to, as you say, get the flow. I think it was the challenge of placing one rhyme without making a stanza look like a run-on sentence.
I don’t suppose there’s anything wrong with that, as long as each segment of the sentence has its internal rhythm.
Bravo all round! Loved reading all of these and now new fellows to follow! Thanks Jane!!
There’s a new challenge tomorrow, and I can’t decide whether to make it a nice ‘soft’ one, or make you suffer.
Suffer little children in order to rise as poets!!! Make us suffer!
Although I’m off to Dublin on Thursday night for the wedding but may get time on the plane before the Irish ladies steal all my energy!!!
It’ll give you something to think about anyway 🙂
