Urban Sonnet
Invented by:  Laura Loo Urbaniak. Sonnet form, with 10 syllables per line and a rhyme scheme of: ABABBB- CDCDDD- EFEFFF-GG 

She morphs into a sultry summer's morn garbed in a cloak of alabaster fog gossamer thin, and casually worn. And echoing the croaks of a bullfrog She starts to carry on a dialogue, with chirps too intricate to catalogue. Slipping on Her slippers of sparkling dew She inks an ebony horizon red, as the sun rises in a sky of blue. And shadows get resurrected from the dead while spiders dangling from a silken thread spin dream-catcher webs that fill flies with dread. Nature's a wizard of special-effects from scarlet sunsets and jungles of green to the colors of Her birds and insects. Wherever we go, She's already been, keeping Her rivers, seas, and oceans clean, but Her mood can change from wild to serene. I hear Her whisper secrets on the wind, like spring’s approaching, or the ice has thinned. (Urban Sonnet) 11/28/2020

Emile, I see a poem that traced roots back from an earlier dawn, What was felt, a Sonnet reaching for the sublime. -Richard

Happy holidays to you too my friend. Who was it that said? "I condone the spirit of "live for the moment and enjoy life." It's not a sin to be happy!" -You

Beautiful Sonnet Emile. This is almost a lost art form, but show a mastery. I especially love the first line "She morphs into a sultry summer's morn". Well done!
