A SONNET FOR RUBEN


Blog Posted:1/17/2014 6:12:00 PM

 

 

 

Playfully, I steal the Argentinian

 

away from reedy palm trees and waifish

 

sandbars, then gift him to the Laurentians.

 

Here, winter sasses each pine, a soft lisp

 

that sloughs quilted hills as we glide old trails.

 

He sees in Precambrian rocks trompe-l'oeils, 

 

then tips his hat at mordant cardinals.

 

We freeze as a stag appears, the viceroy 

 

of these woods. He is lost gentry who stows

 

sage verse, outlining seasons without words.

  

I coax my friend to build a woman of snow.

 

Wise, his craft, for he leaves her ungirded.

 

and from evergreen, he weaves her a bonnet.

 

I laugh, for from his grin smiles, too, my sonnet.

 

 

 

 

About this poem

 

My term of affection for Ruben has been for some time: hat man.

 

An Argentinian who now lives in a southern state, he recently commented to me he could not believe how cold it was where I lived.

 

I used to live in Quebec, and there is nothing quite as beautiful as the Laurentians in winter... well, lol, perhaps the Laurentians in the fall, all those trees, all those colours.

 

So I decided to ?take? Ruben there.

 

The Laurentians are... hmmm...like Quebec?s Appalachian mountains, a wild, rolling landscape, a natural beauty which can leave you breathless.

 

 

 

 

I was intentionally ambiguous in lines 9 and 10, as I am speaking of both the stag and Ruben. I can hear him laughing so hard right now that he fell off his chair. Me! Stag! WAAA HAA HAAA WAAA HAAA but, he might say, Yup. You got that right.

 

The rock cliffs of the Laurentians are hard to describe, made with this ancient rock that would surely inspire a thousand haiku. I think that Ruben would love them.

 Stone-Faced Sober

 

 

I hope you like it.

 

If anything puzzles you, ask away!

 

Hugs to my chum, Ruben, who playfully wanted a sonnet ... so I gave him one.

 

Likey?

    I see 2 faces in the rocks, she, gazing to the earth, and he, his head on her shoulder, looking up at her face. Ruben is going to love this. I am sure he already does, as I seen he wrote something but I haven't read the comments yet. I will do that now. love and hugs, Catie :)

    The second picture (Laurentians?) ... what a stunning place! I'll be there! Now, regarding "stag" ... : D the adult male deer is a beautiful animal ... BUT ... stag has many meanings and connotations: a castrated pig (not yet); unaccompanied at a social event (hmm, no, never); a speculator in stock market (I have no idea) ... I'll take the adult male (without the antlers!) : D!

    She said YES! I'll work it on it today while my girl is in ballet and then (a few hours later) her karate class. It will be on low simmer for a few days. Weekends here are a WHIRLWIND!

    I've asked Charmaine if I can do one for her, and yesterday, walking in the snow, alone, I "saw" about ten more sonnets for soupers. SONNET SOUP. Enjoy the spotlight... lol.... soon another lovely souper will have it shone on them!
    MacMillan Avatar Cyndi MacMillan Date: 1/18/2014 6:13:00 AM Block poet from commenting on your poetry

    I'd reworked the last line about 12 times. The one above is not the final (will have to change it) but the one in poems, is. I also will change the from evergreen, to with evergreen. I don't like the repetition of "From" and with xxxxx weaves has a nicer cadence.
    MacMillan Avatar Cyndi MacMillan Date: 1/18/2014 6:10:00 AM Block poet from commenting on your poetry

    And I see that romanticism there, too :D evergreen and weaving, I was giving the slightest "echo" of Greensleeves, but with you, lol, my friend, it had to be a hat. So bonnet it became.
    MacMillan Avatar Cyndi MacMillan Date: 1/18/2014 6:08:00 AM Block poet from commenting on your poetry

    This is why I chose Trompe-l'oil for your sonnet--sometimes YOU like to fool the eye... fool WITH the eye. Your cross is in my faves... some first could not see it, because it is the empty space that makes its shape! The loss!
    MacMillan Avatar Cyndi MacMillan Date: 1/18/2014 6:06:00 AM Block poet from commenting on your poetry

    And I so enjoy your haiku... not that haiku is trompe l'oil ... but sometimes we see art come alive with haiku. I remember losing my breath for a moment, sucker punched, when I read your "origami" haiku. What you saw in those folds... like art. Some things appear real, yet are not, a good poet captures this with truth-lines
    MacMillan Avatar Cyndi MacMillan Date: 1/18/2014 6:01:00 AM Block poet from commenting on your poetry

    awk, castrated pig? LOL. Nope. Perhaps, "Hart" would have worked better... and the connotation with that word. :D Now, what does "outlining seasons without words" mean... what am I "saying?" Those shape poems, without the words, just letters... I'm alluding to those, subtly. Did you see that? Wondering...
    O. Avatar Ruben O. Date: 1/18/2014 1:35:00 AM Block poet from commenting on your poetry

    I'll visit your page to FAV it, of course! : D

    I told you that I was not jealous! ; ) You should see my face at this moment! Im a little bit shy ... of exposure! I feel that I don't deserve this honor (actually, I deserve it; I'm just pretending LOL). Thank you so much for this "gift;" I'm going to print it to save it.

    ??? Last blog is still there, Bet!!! Do you mean from the home page? It's on the blogs page. I know, me<--blog hog. I wanted to send a hug to Ruben. Anyways, must do a few dishes and I have a goulashe in the slowcooker that must be stowed away in the fridge. HUGS! PS--my creativity is going in 40 directions at the same time

    how cool that Ruben asked you for a sonnet and you gifted him this. I once finished a sonnet of mine with bonnet rhyming with sonnet! I had written a sonnet on my hair. hahaha. I love how you use your enjambment, Cyndi. It's a sign of a sonneteer with flair!

    Thanks, I'm going to be gifting sonnets. I love sonnets... I can't believe it was about 2 years ago that I said I didn't like enjambment. LOL. Now? Couldn't live without it. Thanks, hon! :D

    :D Wonderful! I have just the place to "take" you... I'll leave it as a surprise, cause then the poem will "come out" faster, if you know what I mean. If I tell you, then I've released too much and the lines spill slower. Hugs Hugs!!!

    Charmaine, I have decided to do a large series of modern sonnets, each a gift to special souper, each a poetic abduction, so to speak, that places the poet in my locale . I... had one in mind for you. You are the first I have asked if I could write one. May I? Hugs, Cyndi
