Prides of Poseidon

When sea gods invisibly show their glory They’re escorted by their elusive sea army; Vow before them, their loud rhapsodic chords play, As heard in light of blue waves on summer day. Marvelous army with mighty spiral swords Hewed by sea gods, their magnificence- behold! Their trimmed trident’s tines conjure like somersault, Wish I'm sea god’s knight to ride on them and joust. Coastal birds herald their rare presence with glee With ineffable joy, breeze hums sweet ditty; Surfs break in applause beneath the granite cliffs As splendid narwhals’ display… nature breaths…sniffs~ Narwhals are great sea god’s mighty unicorns, They’re special sea army, prides of Poseidon! ©2015Leonora Galinta All Rights Reserved Sept. 25, 2015 10.25 p.m. (sonnet in 11/11/11/11) Second Place Contest: Impress Me With a Narwhal Poem Judged: 10/27/2015 Sponsor: My fave poet sis, Skat POTD:9/27/2015

It's alright my very dear friend, Robert. I've missed a lot more here at PS already and I've missed a lot of your great and wonderful writes. I should be the one to say sorry. But I'll try my very best to drop by this weekend, ok. Thanks a lot for passing by and your warm congratulatory comments. So much appreciated. Many hugs from me to you and your wife.

Hello Leonora, Still checking out your poetry here. Belated congratulations are in order here for "POTD"!! This is truly a special write indeed. I've done my share of sonnets too, but I must say this is the first time I've read one in a 11-syllable versification. Quite unique and quite wonderful. The high quality tone and tenor rendered by this type of meter helps to highlight further the fine imagery and perfect word diction of your sonnet. Another "7" + "FAV" in my book!! Best Always, Gary
