Compare The Cold Sunrise And Be Grateful: Revolutionary Blogging Sonnet

February 7, 2016

SoCal Palm tree sunset -- warm sea breeze at San Clemente BeachShe would send me photos/
of tall SoCal tropical trees/
silhouetted in the red sunset;/
dancing in the warm sea breeze.

As if to entice me/
to visit and to stay./
To warm my feet in the sand/
and watch the palm trees sway.

I returned the photo favor/
of a frigid, streaming sunrise:/
A frosted cottonwood silhouetted/
against cold blue mountain skies.

T’was not to tempt her, nor to say I was coldly sad,/
but to remind her to be grateful for the warm beauty she had.
Cold Sanpete County frosted cottonwood sunrise

Missing Me On The Beach: Romantic ConTEXTing Poem

May 31, 2010

How sad she/
only misses me/
when her toes are caressed/
by sand and sea./

Oh, that the warm breeze/
caresses/
that touch her shimmering tresses/
were from me.
