Print Save Become a Fan
A romantic sonnet for a change.
Mist obscures, but pen procures a deep thought
Held like cloud in the roof of a forest,
So poignant and with so much energy,
The flight of a paradise kingfisher.
Wings beat the air, he darts like a sentence
Across a page of my life yet to come.
This letter holds that reflection of you
Poised to make its own journey to your heart.
Will you, dare you, breath those words I long for?
Have you feelings enough to say you’ll come?
The forest speaks of your presence, a time
When you were here before, the butterfly
That sat on your hand had no need to fly.
The mist hangs like a question mark, will you?
