A Vision

In midst of Natures bounty I espied Aside a stream, a gilded gleaming cage. Its tenant was a lifeless bird inside. Engrossed in thought in view of deaths image I deemed its death from thirst beside water. Within this cage were two metal basins one filled with food, and of course, the other. It’s like a wealthy man who’s locked within His iron safe, amid his heaps of gold; And perishing inside his house of ease Of hunger pangs and thirst as time unfolds. Then suddenly a bizarre vision seized My weary eyes, the cage became the bones Of Man, the bird, his prisoned heart of stone.

    I like the way this sonnet shifts at the end, the way you take turn at line 12 to lead into the closing. I also like the balance of sentence lengths, it contributes to the overall sense of flow. Thanks, Jim
