Sonnet #14

by butterflyzrfree

Walking on the long road when out went lights,
the bulbs had burst, a huge blackout ensued,
had walked this path for years, no change, no flight
could ask not why, of HIM that would be rude.
This road of sorrow, perfect place for me,
pining my love who had, for me, cared not
lost that love years ago, but could not see;
my head would rather wallow in the rot.
I had assumed that bulbs had made the light,
not that spiritual glow came from above
but ne'er looked into self for cause of fright
that what I most feared was the loss of love.

Now ready to climb what shines, that which we dream.
Things ne'er turn out just quite the way they seem.

Disarmingly honest, insightful and well constructed, Gail.

      How's this:

      The disarmingly honest
      insightful
      and well constructed Gail
      writes many a fine sonnet.

      ?????

      (Not quite a haiku, but as close as I could get!)

      Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy

I normally prefer more rhythmic pieces but I liked this poem, especially the the ending couplet, it was a good close.
