Keola - Sonnet Most of the time when I'm under the sun, ought not to watch or, pass by on people, in confusion, the clock glued eyes outrun, a zenith star would soar up that steep hill. Sooner all will suspect that life's too brief, plus, die surrounds confidence merits life. I've improved rather than grasp my belief, and think I got the choice result fehl strife. Confuse not in the consequence head-on, direct my route, let that star point beyond, a scale that exacts stealthily who's drawn, bargain heightened the fact I did respond. I discovered they who do take time plans, firmly coiling so turning the clock's hands. *fehl: fault; flaw; failure 2021 December 06

Much appreciated, Beata, as TPS waddles on the concept for souper's inability to submit their new-fangled ideas, I say, throw it out there and let soupers give it a try my friend, Aloha!
