Sarah, Lovely And Loving

Rating: 4.8
Sarah, lovely and loving, offered
her hand, a simple hand, nothing
more. If her hand had held flowers,
or money, or food, I would smiling
have grasped it. Instead it was only
her white hand, pulsing with life.
Sarah took the moral high ground,
and left me sloshing in the swamp,
soon to realize the cost of love
to those, like her, who give and give
beyond the needs of the moment
toward some larger goal of kindness,
patience and fulfillment for all.
But she turns back and sees me floundering.
That pure hand is tarnished rescuing me
Daniel Brick
This sonnet was intended as an exercise in iambic meter but it became much more

Sometimes I remain awestruck and think what to write about a poem like this which is so deep and soul searching.

This is discernment, my friend. A discernment many of us do not see nor feel. Dang, you're good. 5 star rating though that is a paltry rating for a poem of this magnitude. I favored it as well cuz I want to read this again and again to remind myself what a real poet is

You said---This sonnet was intended as an exercise in iambic meter but it became much----you are so right. This is so elegant and insightful and so filled with your talent more
