The heavy fog slowly lifts in places Open patches of spring delight and resounds The look-out crow caws, joyous news abounds As rooster's crows lands in hollow spaces The rising sun warms pale skin with graces Awareness of a stillness settles around Coo of the dove seems to calm and propounds Thoughts surface above the calm, one races Wildlife has no idea of what's ahead They know not that storms could come and flood nests Dens, wreck havoc, seal their fate, end life's joy Humans bounce singing there's nothing to dread Weak, untested in the fire, growths arrest One incident will probably destroy Finis'

The look out crows bring the joyous news that spring is coming. Wow! Rooster's crows land in hollow spaces; exactly right. We have roosters behind us, and I do not hear them now. When it turns and warns of the possibility of what a storm could do, it is so on target. I have no words good enough, yet it's a fav for me.

Sara, every line of your graceful and glorious sonnet is a scintillating beauty. Gorgeous, expressive imagery (especially your third and fourth lines - love the clever word play) and the last two lines are simply stunning so far .. already a fave! Warmest wishes. ~Susan

Vous avez fini, dear Sara. A lovely finish. Your first half was so beautifully done. Now your additional lines gorgeously compliment the first half and completes your theme wondrously. Your thought that races perfectly expresses the concerned wisdom of your life experiences.. a superb sonnet my friend.

Susan, Your comments are uplifting. I still have six lines to go and have to decide which way I will carry out the thought that races. Sara
