Writing is like breathing to me

Writing is like breathing to me
A force that cannot be helped
Words and rhymes flow and swirl
Wisp through my mind, words unfurl
Imagination is my friend
Hand in hand, at the ready
Creating treasures and emotional stories
My heart and soul take all the glory
My eyes see the earth in all its beauty
And all its sorrow and sadness
Fingertips tingle and lyrics flow
Sometimes a tear down my cheek will roll
You see, writing is like breathing to me
Transforms my mind so easily

For contest – ‘Jack OUT of the box’
I have never written in 'Sonnet Form' before, I have enjoyed giving it a go!

    Emma so nice to have your entry. Soup doesn't teach you much about how to write a sonnet. Please check out Shakespearian Sonnet on you want iambic pentameter [10 syllables per line is a good can tweak this to that! I won't be picky about the meter BUT this site will help you much better.] Light & Love [There are many sonnet forms start with this one]

    Oops, I see you don't have Soup mail. Brian Strand told me there are many acceptable rhyme schemes for sonnets. Yours is new to me but I really enjoyed reading it! Brian is somewhat of an expert on sonnet forms. Love, Carolyn

    Oh yes, writing means so much to me as well, Emma. Always has. We tend to "think" as writers after a while -- ll the rhymes and inspiration swirling through our heads. Soup mail in a moment. Best wishes in Deb's contest. Love, Carolyn
