I shall not waiver nor will I digress from gazing at these lambent hills of green where mounds of grass like cobblestones progress from creek beds where the ash and alder preen, their leaves like coins that shimmer in the sun, up to the graceful summits round and lush, that as the waning mists become undone and dissipate within the morning hush are bathed in iridescent emerald. My eyes are now redeemed of paining dark, though stars' asunder twinkling would herald the incandescent trilling of the lark. Indeed with eyes enraptured I confess I shall not waiver nor will I digress. 10/22/18

A great example for your contest Dale. Orphan is a great choice for your invented sonnet. It will be pretty difficult to top this beauty. I am a fan, as you know I was impressed enough to fave this first time I read it. Not sure if I can attempt this, but I am inspired. : )

Very nice indeed Dale! I love how you bring this full circle at then end, and the way the lines run on so effortlessly. It does sound such a blissful landscape to gaze at, in fact I couldn’t help thinking of The Shire (without the Hobbits though!) Well done!

Dale, you chose a stunning image to place above your sonnet. Your words that describe the grass like cobblestone and graceful summits, bathed in the iridescent emerald are a perfect match for the captivating picture. It looks like a scene from the UK in a calendar I just received. Excellent writing; you surely know how to compose a sonnet! Best wishes for the holidays, Carolyn
