(a Shakespearean sonnet)
A bloodstained bandit breeze dwindles the dawn,
arouses barefaced sun to blushing rise.
A gloomy, frugal courtship panders on,
as noiseless skysongs tease these jaded skies.
Last night, the tranquil skim milk moonbeams spilled,
forgot their green-eyed gossip for awhile,
brought forth a hint of lustrous starstain willed
of madcap bedroom eyes and swaggered smile.
The day’s a bump of blanket discontent
a summit of our gnarled and groveled gain.
But much to our majestic amazement,
life’s scuffle-sorted luggage bears our name.
O, let’s undress these storms of savag’ry,
and hobnob with this pretty-vaulting sea.
PAD, day 26.
Champion ode! 😉
Monumental excitement. 😉 (Thank you.)
I’m green-eyed with envy. You are dauntless. (And one day your list of De-generated-words may well rival Will’s!) 😉 Beautiful work, lady!
Oh! I love all of these words and how you wove them. They give me a smile.
How in the world you do it, I’ll never know.
These images and the form are amazing!
Love. Love. Love. Especially your couplet. LOVE.
The first stanza is my favorite. I feel like I got a sneak-peek at something celestial and naughty!
This has me grinning: “arouses barefaced sun to blushing rise”
Delightful – hobnobbing with the sea!
