Coffee

Waking up to aroma
Of a gourmet 
array 
as you awake.
Some like it black
some take creamy.
Many stop and buy
that morning juice .

empty soul

an empty soul
with no story to tell 
no memory to share
only shattered emotions 
with no one to tell
just tears 
that can not be stopped 

Short Sonnet poem by Rahul C S| Details | |

Sculpture

a monolithic rock,
the patience of a sculptor,
belief of people,
battered & bruised,
with time, sand & wind,
nonetheless captured for a lifetime..

Short Sonnet poem by Clifford Woodell| Details | |

Crying Myself to Sleep

It's just one o'clock
On Sunday A.M.
And my thought process
Is getting quite slim
Eyelids are heavy,
Red colored, and rimmed.
Its now one-oh-two
On Sunday A.M.


Short Sonnet poem by J B| Details | |

complete

softly caress
the skin you undress
kisses so tender
while the candles flicker
by the light of the moon
until the dawn looms
in your arms I sleep
loving complete

Short Sonnet poem by Billy Bob| Details | |

Sonnet 18 and a half

Shall I compare thee to a piece of clay?
Thou crack and crumble in light of the sun.
Thy beauty’s all but washed and burned away
All of my love for thee has been undone.

beef stew

                       Cause I much rather have beef stew

Short Sonnet poem by Jeff Burris| Details | |

A Flower

I love the smell and softness
of a flower as it lay
spread in splendid color 
and sweet aroma stayed
like a virgins' kiss
with inviting touch
that gently opens
to give itself away.

Short Sonnet poem by ernie j| Details | |

Lilly

As I stroll along
A cobblestone path
A sight to behold indeed
Rows of flowers 
Adorn each side
Embrace such beauty to be
My fondest one
That I most gaze upon
Is the one
Angels call Lilly

Short Sonnet poem by Brian Strand| Details | |

A demi sonnet

No noise,silence,
the beating of my  heart,
alone,with my thoughts;
Without,I see the breeze,
soundless,active,alive,
slowly I awake,arise

to another day

you are...

you are a part of every hour
the light that shines inside
the song I sing in the morning
the poetry that I write
the wonder of each moment
a candle in my dark
a now eternal flame
burning in my heart

Short Sonnet poem by J B| Details | |

Valentine

lay your leg across me, so I can go to sleep
kissing me goodnight, so I will have sweet dreams
wrap your arms around me, hold me very tight
thank you for bringing Valentine's day...
back into my life
