Upon Writing This Sonnet

To write this poem my head takes on a role Akin to those of an actor unfold, Whilst mind and hand in unison doth stroll Along stringent directions to uphold. My muse able to call on devotion A belief in the power of one’s heart, As the ink flows creates the emotion Within the labyrinth of this fine art. Where choice words of common sense I do weave To ring in one’s head the understanding, Yet to wear my child’s mind on this my sleeve There marks the chart of my safe landing. While some words are clothed in mighty glory Others in rags enhance the whole story. © Harry J Horsman 2018

Hi Harry, You have epitomized the essence of what it means to pursue the task of sitting and putting down in prose the thoughts and sensibilities of one self. You can feel the unknowing beginning in the first line and then the on going cohesive coherency there after. And then the wrapping up with a conclusive resonance. :)

We are all reliably informed that Sonnets are relatively easy to compose...not to my way of thinking -- to my mind they are damned tricky! You have made a good fist of this, Harry - nicely done! My very warmest regards as always. :) john
