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


Never apart

Leave a comment

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

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 to God 3

Words are flying at me, piercing my heart,

From those who despise me and some I love.

Arrows fall so thick the sky appears dark.

Raining down with poison tips from above.


My soul wounded from relentless attacks.

Broken and damaged not sure I’ll survive.

Spirit withered, body weakened, heart taxed.

Hardly a sign that I am still alive.


I whisper your name hoping you hear me.

Praying my words are lifted on the wind,

and to your kingdom it carries my plea,

so you might save me before my sad end.


You alone can rescue me from this fate.

And redeem me, standing pure at your gate.

Sonnets: Dark

Leave a comment

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.

Sonnets to God 2

A whirlwind swirls around me all the time.

Pelting me with rubble, debris and trash.

Even those I love just seem to malign.

With all the commotion I collapse fast.


Face crashing to the earth, mouth full of dirt.

Hands grasping the ground for anything real.

But each breath and each movement only hurts.

Agonizing, no longer want to feel.


Rolling to my back my eyes burn with dust.

Tears begin to cleanse them like sweet fresh rain.

You spirit breathes life in me as a gust.

Finally I can see the bright sky again.


There is your face, kind and generous.

Your love is healing, your mercy endless.

I love sonnets. I’m not saying mine are amazing or anything, I’m just saying I love them. Writing them, reading them, and now posting them. I started writing some to God, inspired by the psalms. Here’s the first one I wrote.

God I am lost without your guiding hand.

I act as though I know where I’m going.

But really I’m just wandering this land.

And hide the fact to keep it from showing.


Still, knowing this I ignore your spirit.

And go where my lying heart would take me.

It always seems to land me in a pit.

Where my soul languishes in agony.


If only I could learn to follow you.

And keep your laws and decrees in my heart.

When trouble comes I would know what to do.

At last I would see your light in the dark.


Please keep calling me though I walk away.

Hopefully I will answer you one day.
