    "Orange meets the blue
    The sunset’s colorful mixture I adore
    Its aspects of beauty are like the many droplets of dew
    It reminds me of my necklace made of peacock ore

    The sunset’s color I adore
    From its tones of orange mixed with purplish blue
    It reminds me of my necklace made of peacock’s ore
    Its emulsions of colors accrues"

    Do you have to completely repeat the line, since the first line of the second stanza isn't exactly the second from the first... woah that sounded more confusing than I had hoped for.

    I really enjoyed the imagery in the poem, and I liked the type of poem; I don't know how it slipped by me. I find it much more agreeable than a villanelle, though it reminds me a bit of one.
