Like Sonnets Dripping From the Sky

Sometimes upon the bluesy blur
Of day bending with twilight’s sigh
It seems I hear a sort of whisper
Dripping from the deep'ning sky

Window-scapes fade to nothingness
And so time’s new day disappears
Into Bygone's big emptiness
Of Now spun into after-years

And I am torn; love-worn, the art
Of hunger and fulfillment vie
To touch the part that stirs the heart
With sonnets slipping from the sky

  1. Your words touch my soul. Love the line "Of day bending with twilight’s sigh"

    Janet, I'm wishing you a very Happy Christmas. May the sweet Spirit of Christmas fill every corner of your home with Joy.


    1. Thank-you SO much, Brenda.
      I wish the same for you!
      (Sorry for my absence but between baby-sitting and the internet not working it's been challenging to keep up!)


Thank-you for stopping by my porch! I hope you were blessed!
