A Sonnet of Conclusion: Romantic IMprov Email Sonnet

October 25, 2010

The romantic Oz ego/
gathers the poetic remains/
of verbal seeds cast across/
the ocean’s eternal waves.

She examines them closely;/
turning them this way/
and that. Hopefully believes words
written by the poet today.

She understands their power.

But she must now know he’s let go and moved on,
just like she did so long ago with her other one.

October 20, 2010

A friend told me she didn’t like to wear a hat, because she felt like it covered her mind and prevented her from getting inspiration. As I was driving to Utah, I took that one step further by driving with my convertible top down the entire way (even when it was below freezing on the Utah/Idaho border) … and I penned this haiku about how I can see more clearly with the top down:
You never know what/
possible visions you miss/
covering your mind.
