Sonnet. Fragrance of My Heart

Your golden blossoms shake my longing heart

From my sweet sleep awakened dappled light

Remind me I have loved you from the start

A trembling kiss of dazzling aching bright.


But what if days of sunrise come to end

Or golden flowers wake too late to bud

Or heavy fragile stems begin to bend

And blossoms flutter fragile to the mud?


Then I will reach both hands to catch your fall

For just a fleeting moment of your beauty

Embrace the velvet raindrop of your petal

That lights in grace upon my lips so gently.


Whose fragrant love is sweet and more divine

Whose tender heart shines brighter next to mine



Prom Chaperone

After reading InfiniteZip’s Curtail Sonnet, I was inspired to try out that form of poetry.  🙂 It was fun anyway…This is based on my experience as a Prom Chaperone last night:

Prom Chaperone


Elegant girls with pretty gowns are texting

Fingers tapping restlessly under the table

Uncertain curls and bashful lips get no reception


Silken boys with gloomy dispositions pacing

A party-crasher’s side-eye glance gets her in trouble

Stirring some excitement in her expulsion


Young couples kissing in the dance floor shadows

Childhood friends are feeling new rejection

As playful groups dissolve in romance couples

And secret votes reveal  without a single doubt

A lesbian prom queen selection
