Resurrect us again

within the midst of darkened summer nights
a gossamer wind whispers through the trees
a melancholy melody benights
your soft whispers attuned within its breeze

i feel your gentle touch atop bare skin
as i dance with shadows in moon's dim light
pirouetting around what could have been
beneath the slow dance of yesteryear's plight

i close my eyes beneath your lips' caress
where memories hold tight your tender kiss
to live in the moments time can't repress
i slip back through the years and reminisce

i lose myself within memories calls
until summer's thunderous storm befalls

This is so much more than a sonnet...it is a mood, a song, a vision of splendorous romance. A Fave from me Sandra. Congratulations on your podium win! : ) xxoo

Wow thank you John for you kind comment, hosting the contest, for the win and helping me expand my writing on new horizons! I only have one other sonnet and for me they are difficult so this made my night

For someone who writes mostly free verse you wrote a wonderful sonnet, Sandy. I have written many poems reminiscing about past loves, maybe it's a sign I'm getting old...but I'm still young at heart. Good luck in the contest my friend. John

Thank you Gordon, it's only the second i have ever written, and rhyme has always been challenging for me! I appreciate the feedback and you very kind comment :) hugs

Perfect 10 syllables per line and perfect rhyme in quatrains. I always find sonnets difficult. You did a marvellous job. Best for a win. Hugs
