This Sonnet Is Meant To Die


In hand clocked desert sands
Grain spread across the lands
Sky dived still reaching high

The sonnet meant to be mute
No word was it meant to say
All it wanted was to sway
A second longer than a lute

The sonnet meant to rise
Beyond a dark worn mask
Facing a bitterness dusk
Hiding in lights disguise

It never meant to heart
Though choked in the first breath
It never meant to flirt
Flirt with tokens of its own death

Poem of the Day

All sounds have been as music to my listening:
Pacific lamentations of slow bells,
The crunch of boots on blue snow rosy-glistening,
Shuffle of autumn leaves; and all farewells:
