The Wintered Soul Among Wisteria

One need not read her horoscope to know this woman's fate, and though wisteria cascades sweet blooms of lavender like snow outside her door, it's still Siberia pervading the dimensions of her mind, for not one fickle thought or patch of moss can thrive where bleakest shadows are enshrined. No bittersweet, no dew drops. . . only loss surrounds her heart. She tries to reminisce, but like a barren continent grown cold, she can't perceive one particle of bliss. She's clasping grief and cannot be consoled! Wisteria's perfume is in the breeze, but in her soul remains a winter's freeze. 9/24/14 For Janice Canerdy's Sonnet Poetry Contest

OUTSTANDING! The use of Siberia as a metaphor for bleakness and despair is excellent throughout. "for not one fickle thought or patch of moss / can thrive where bleakest shadows are enshrined." Her sadness is so pervasive she can't see or smell the hope of renewal Spring can bring. This is a definite fav for me. Well done, Sonneteer! ~ John

While looking up Sonnet in Forms I I found this winter gem. I especially love the title and the way your enjambment moves the poem along to the touching end. How deep is grief if nature fails to console. Sending hugs, SuZ
