Sonnet: Flowers


Haven’t written a sonnet in a while, here it goes

Morning dawns and dew covers the grass
Light pours through the window above our bed
Gentle, warm rays of sun, rain down on us
Eyes crack open to softly kiss your head

Begin to wonder how I can show you
All the love I possess for my baby
What gestures prove my love for you is true?
Chocolates, poems or jewelry maybe?

Flowers represent how strongly I feel
Beautiful and fragrant in a glass vase
Delicate, precious and so very real
They brighten and liven up every place

So from my heart I gift you these flowers
And pray others have a love bright as ours


Sonnet: Frost

The cold air bites my face as I step through
My door and out into the blank winter
All night long, frost settled in and wind blew
Like a hungry bear angry and bitter

A thick sheet covering the world in death
And leaving everything quiet and still
Stealing all the warmth from bodies and breath
Seeking to smoother and seeking to kill

Yet mountains look as though topped with sugar
Children playing, building snowmen, sledding
Not afraid of the low temperature
And others survive by hibernating

Know that winter never lasts forever
Bundle up and wait for warmer weather

Never apart

So many colors thoughts and images
Floating in and out through me like a stream
Stories told through ever turning pages
You are always the woman of my dreams

I open my eyes greeted by your face
Feeling your body radiating warmth
And with my arms accepting your embrace
An endless well my love for you springs forth

Our love story is one for the ages
Forged from reckless passion and deep desire
Tossing out the wisdom of the sages
We each endured trials of stone and of fire

Now we hold hands and share kisses in dark
Our hearts are one never to be apart

Love like a storm


Love is like a storm on the open seas.
The vast open waters, the wind and waves.
Sailing on it is never with much ease.
You can sail without seeing land for days.

So why then would anyone ever sail?
There is so much danger, why take the risk?
Of being tossed about by a fierce gale.
Or the ship breaking up in the abyss.

The danger causes many to stay home.
Many never leave safe waters of port.
They are too afraid to ever go roam.
They long for the safety of the king’s court.

So only the sailors can ever know.
The golden streets of lost Eldorado.

Sonnets: Alone


I desperately want someone to love.

I mean a woman to have and to hold.

I’m beginning to feel cursed from above.

No special someone with whom to grow old.


Alas there is no one of that nature.

No woman with whom i can share my life.

No sightings of such a divine creature.

I am utterly alone with no wife.


A single young man alone on the road.

Walking the highway hoping for a ride.

As of yet no one stopped or even slowed.

So as cars drive by, I sit on the side.


My thumb is up and my heart is wanting.

But while all alone the task seems daunting.

Sonnets: Dark

Smothered in darkness, no light to be found.

Engulfs me like a night that will not end.

Unable to run I crawl on the ground.

So dark, on my sight I cannot depend.


My senses so dulled I can see nothing.

The sun will not rise, the stars cannot shine.

Confined in my cell alone, suffering.

I cannot speak but only moan and whine.


Give me a glimmer of hope in the light.

Please send me a sign that a life can glow.

Warming my heart and restoring my sight.

My soul needs some light in order to grow.


And so I will wait for the day you come.

To raise me from the dead, no longer numb.
