Victory’s Eagle and Rhubarb Crisp: Revolutionary IMprov Blogging Sonnet

July 13, 2010

I saw an eagle soar
yesterday above my canoe,
and as I watched his grandeur
I thought, Victory, of you.

And last night,
again,
I thought of you when
I ate raspberry rhubarb delight.

You should come float.
Dip your hands in the water;
pet the goslings and river otter,
and let your soul go remote;

Feel the heal of earth, wind, sky,
and wave and laugh as the eagle flies by.
