Sweet Sonnet Bird

When on the path of poetry I tread,
I rarely know the scenery I’ll find.
I hear a bird that sings inside my head
and measures steps iambic in my mind.

At times it seems a mountain that I climb.
I work but do not sweat. . . it’s more like play!
And each five steps I take, a word must rhyme
with one that’s ten feet farther on my way.

Although I often plod, I hate to rest;
I follow where sweet bird is wont to go
and often double back while on my quest
to find each turn of phrase most apropos.

But, oh, that words to match her melody
would come as swiftly as her song to me!

Just A Beautiful Day - The Curtal Sonnet Style

~Just A Beautiful Day~
(Curtal Sonnet)

Its dawn and I see the bright sun come out
And in the morning its tender arms still the night,
Breakin' the gloom as its light descends the clouds,
As sunshine extends all her fingers about;
And grass and trees cleanses with its bright light,
As its glow, keeps climbing the sky so blue

It seems to be sweeping all the gray clouds ‘way,
As ev'r so gently they move on their own a'cord,
Swirling and dancin' as they go ‘round the sun,
And I see the birds soaring above the trees
Well,it seems,this day will be full of fun.

Sonnet 1

A canvas high and felt traced tips
With background broad and tint azure
None posed in space with limbs being clipped
The sketch of liberty one saw

When pillars then in holes are tucked
Sore eyes in Gaya’s comfort seek
While plumes of sentiment are plucked
Love lingers on in love’s mystique

Time let the warble low to swoop
And beak like marble gloss to shine
Thoughts flicker on life’s endless stoep
In tandem with the sun that mimes

That morn when words and wheels are cleansed
 Found true and veiled in mortal condensed.

Sonnet Erratic- for contest

Sonnet Erratic- for contest

 When i saw a peacock i asked for a  plume
When the plume it gave i laid  it on the floor
When the floor was watered the green grass grew
When grass i fed to cattle milk they gave
When i drank milk i grew tall and strong
Now that i am tall  ladder is of no use
Ladder I sold in seconds sale in my town
Got a few bucks, i bribed the moon
As the moon came early, night spread soon
As night came, my time to sleep came soon
I am under the blanket, trying best to sleep
I now realised its impossible to buy sleep!
Till my actual sleep time came, I had to wait..
Oh my poetry friends read aloud and laugh
Let colleagues peep to see what happened..
If u are at home thanks for reading my sonnet!!!!
Fourteen lines u count it have i not kept the rule??
Sorry if u really counted there are few lines more !
Iambic pentameter has taken break to watch  a newly released movie and have pop- corn !
At home or office, have coffee with chocolate cream
After reading this poem you will need for sure!
Best thing i suggest is stop reading at this point
And get back to your work!!!!
To err is human, to forgive is divine
I tried to make u laugh... If i failed to do it.....
I repeat again...to err is human to forgive is divine

for contest :dont fight it...just write it!

The Goodbye Sonnet

Goodbyes are recollections of the dew
Of warmth that melted throughout the cool night
The blooming rose poems gifted by you
Stay mingled in waving palms still in sight 

Yes, we meet to depart and say good bye
Our surge of kisses are momentary
Your dimple in fact is a butterfly
Flowers you gave me are now nights starry

Go river go to your destined ocean
Fly bird fly the sky is there to take you
Brief too brief is our intimate session
Look how quick runs out all our time in hue

Hugs and cuddles in the splash of ocean
Light pales in the flight of the pelicans

A Sonnet of No Name


a)	Twisting - tangible all within my grasp . . .   
b)	Mystical - just a mere lisp of a word . . .   
a)	Captured - beheld such liken to a clasp . . .   
b)	Never such a beautiful sound like bird . . .    

Sorry I have lost it with this verse - Lets finish with something else . . .  

c)	Harken - yee cometh into my strong arms . . .    
d)	I yiven you gifts - and bestow yee more . . .   
c)	Cometh ma leof - I will seeth yee no harms . . .   
d)	Oust thy sorrow - cometh in clos’ the door . . .  
e)	Settled ma lass - I mea’ yee no alarm . . .   
f)	Oft fine table - for you - all yee can eat . . .   	
e)	I yiveth all - In yiveth my most smarm . . .  
f)	Settle ma lass – I yiveth yee na gleet . . .   	 

g)	Once nigt’ waned - the lass wer' quite settled . . . 
g)	Layeth forth - lass - cometh yiveth yee metal . . .  

I hold no responsibility for this "Shameful" attempt of a - "Sonnet"  . . . 
Was written while eating my bag of chips - sat on the car "Bonnet" . . . ; ) 

And "Yes" I did check the "Syllabels per line this time . . . : )

Sonnet of Resignation

Almost all of us most likely live our
Lives with a prosaic resignation
Like the same sunset and bland moonrise hour
Regardless of vast personal ocean

The pen has to be in pocket as such 
The shirt you bought for me has to be fine
As always now too, I love you as much
Our dreams have to be sweet although saline

Ice in bones and static haemoglobin
Wheels of carriage on accustomed railway
Roads inside parks teem with spilling trash bin
Trees and flowers surrender everyday

Just come home with the full packet of pay
Resigned to everydayness come what may

Sonnet from Your Hairpin

The pen I write with one day you gave me
The words I use would not perhaps have come
Had you not given me your misty sea
That flooded my rooms with splashes handsome

The time I come across every morning
The birds from hills and woods inviting me
Are whispers I have saved from your hairpin
Making me look at you in reddened glee

True you are no more in my hands and lips
And I get you when my breath is lonely
When sea is calm and in rest are tulips
In the purple whispers of time only

The river though has got robbed of its game
The restless neurones still now dance like flame
