SONNET

Sing weeping heart of woe
Of something too precious
Never found that sonnet
Numbed this memory
Ensued much sadness
Towards twilight of loss

A lover would read my proem

With plastic chicks and eggs upon it,

She looked a beauty in her bonnet,

And so I wrote an Easter sonnet.

OUT OF CHAOS

By chance,

with providence,

the randomness in life,

metered,and free verse becomes a 

sonnet.

tabb-SUDDENLY

Out of nowhere,an idea

   Then image;

Out of this picture,a sentence,

   Then a page;

Out of the verse,a sonnet,

   Then a rhyme;

Out of this art,a hobby

   So sublime

Without,I see the breeze,

Your Sister

Many a day your sisters face doth shine,
And never has her complexion dimmed;
Every time I see her, your beauty doth decline.
Your hair unruly like a tree untrimmed.

a new song

and it is soft and sweet

with its own special score

I hear in my head

in

a nursery home.
from cradle to heavenly home.
we roam the sea , froth doth foam.
battles we've fought, how many knots
gone yee.   Bees in a bonnet, birds sing a sonnet.
Heavenly home , free to roam , sea no more.



Short Sonnet poem by Doris Culverhouse| Details |

Wanting

Need

Revisited before and again

Dreams as pain

Longing like rain

On desert's dry sand,

Breeze in the heat

Refresh and hope

Words come like rain, flowing so naturally

Puzzle together a Monet

A sonnet

Wanting a dream come true.


Short Sonnet poem by Michelle Mac Donald| Details |

Poet Tree

A leaf that tumbles in the air

And drifts upon the ground.

A person who sighs and smiles

With eyes that speak no sound.

Poetry is rooted in the earth,

And flies upon the wind.

It is not a sonnet nor a verse,

Its a feeling from within.






Short Sonnet poem by Sara Kendrick| Details |

Just For Fun

Rhyme Royal is half as long as sonnet
Maybe more intriguing for brevity
What can be written from under bonnet
With only seventy syllables, test one's ability
Writing rhyme royal during aridity
The C rhymes could be a short summary
New idea to share that's arbitrary


Short Sonnet poem by Michael Dom| Details |

Inspired by Debbie Guzzie's sonnet March Goosebumps

March brushes past us, in its blustery haste



And we, who stand where Winters chill once laid waste,



Watch in awe, the breath of Spring ignite the earth.



Around cold Winters girth, warm Spring wraps its mirth.



We know, after every death, there is rebirth.

DREAM CATCHER (for Andrea)

DREAM CATCHER (for Andrea)



Lover of the sonnet she

And fond also of Etheree

Has her certain way with words

That one may catch semantically



I ken she is a kindred soul

Our lineal eddies mingle    flow

And seek out those who listen close

That we all might dream-catching go

 


Short Sonnet poem by Joseph Granda-Padron| Details |

Infatuation

Ummmm.

And the rush     of it

The song in your smile

Ummmm. I understand

The meaning of having

But never having

The thought of you here

And not.

Ummmm.

I dont expect anything     from you

But my      sweet sonnet      of 

Passion     Ill never possess

I wish youd allow me to.


Short Sonnet poem by MC MC| Details |

Verse Lines

Verse lines designed to delight

O, how these can ev'r cure

 the sorrows in the night

A sonnet to slip you into a dream

A limerick for laughs and a healthful beam

your soulful eye yearning to dance away defeats

as you hustle to absorb the rhymes and little upbeats.

Albatross



 
Masterfully mounting ocean winds 
unperturbed by turbulence.
Vibrant in the charcoal skies, 
looming o'er cream tipped surf.
Hear his song a shrill sonnet, 
a beckon to those lost at sea.
He pilots only eyes observant,
a luminescent visual cue.
Ushering hapless tide swept souls
 
Into the lands embrace

to bring me peace



My God for me-

or hope-less lives



My God for me-

wholesness,joy

My God for me...

Hung on a tree

A sonnet of love V

love is finding
someone trust worthy
someone with inner beauty
that special someone
to set me free
and make me happy
her beauty sparkles
each moment the stars twinkles
the sound of her voice playing me a jingle
saying am single
and ready to mingle
she is the love of my life
and i can't wait 
to make her my wife


Short Sonnet poem by Matt Ancient| Details |

A sonnet of love IV

time travels so fast
and we quickly forget the past
I  thank God at last
yesterday you were my baby
now my lady
tomorrow you will be my fiance
and later in life
i shall call you my wife
diamonds are forever
i shall put a diamond ring 
on your finger
for better or worst
we will be together
for our love is forever


Short Sonnet poem by Danesh Morgan| Details |

In a world of magic and logic

In a world of magic,

Silent speaks across the winds,

Where trees scatter news,

Of places with loving beings.



In a world of logic,

Gossips speaks together with sins,

Are spread by sweeten lips,

With countless sorrow and pain.

charles melody

I know a charles called melody
like the melody in my heart
the ink in my pen
A lighten ink
to ignite their passion 
A passion for change
the man in the center 
He's not a mentor
but an icon 
he bears the mark of the most highe
people call him charlse
but i call him sir
these is just a sonnet
but for him charlse melody

vignette-TYPO GRAPHICAL text

In 1894 EDWARD ESTLIN CUMMINGS was born
when capital letters were the 'norm'-
With inventive and original verse,
Gaps,spaces,drop margins he then did try
and much use of the lower-case i
EE's many  little poetic tricks
sure makes him my maverick!

Note Cyndi
one of my 5 line vignette form
changed to a demi-sonnet form


Short Sonnet poem by Brian Strand| Details |

A Mutual passion

No words, can true love express,
nor verse,fine sonnet or song,
the need,the longing to give;
No touch, can true love relieve,
nor kiss,cuddle or caress
the desire,to quench this fire
to have,receive and believe;
No comfort,can true love keep,
in letter or token lock
our longing to receive.

A sonnet of love I



As the lion searches for it prey 
So have i long for thee 
Sorry my anger drove you away 
For with you behind me 
Made me more comfortable 
Why did i act a fool 
You are adorable 
But i betrayed you 
I was carried away 
Like a feather 
I was discourage 
By the bad weather 
You were a good pair 
But i did not treat you fair

A sonnet of love VII

they say i do not live in a mansion

neither do i have

a huge salary paid occupation

and poverty is my accreditation

so i do not deserve love

but what is love

and who is love for

the poor begs for love

the rich mistreat love

some have it all

but they don't have love

others have love

but do not no how

to treat love

shades

the order of the iambic pentameter,

the chaos of the totally unmetrical,

the logical conception of a piece by Bach,

the frenzied wailing of the later John Coltrane,

the predictability of the sonnet form,

the convoluted voices of free verse,

the yin the yang, the shade the sheen,

and all the vibrant shades that lie between!

A form of words

oh love,love me do

with sweet poems,old and new

or odes that ring true



my darling,don't fret,

dearest heart my number one;

see how I've begun

with end rhyme we'll have fun,or

maybe sonnet or tercet



on no,not flowery words

too obscure and seldom heard,

such poetry's no better

than prose by letter
