Premium Member Reflections from a Toiling Sonneteer
One’s poetry not always will unfold
beneath its author’s pen as some suppose.
And poetry one is to yet behold
might slowly bloom before one plucks that rose.

akin to the rising sun— 
In contrast to lapis sky
enchanting lovers
strolling hand in hand on shore.
Moonlight coruscates on sea.

a dark duvet
drizzled sadness
