Locks Of Hair, Flowing: Revolutionary IMprov Sonnet

February 18, 2013

Locks of hair, flowing,/
cascade down her shoulders./
The sunlight catches it, glowing,/
causing suitors to be bolder.

She, fearful, hesitates,/
to take that first stride./
Having learned, too late,/
that it’s sometimes a bad ride.

Yet he, not spurned,/
presses on to know her more./
For in his wisdom he’s learned/
what trust and faith are for.

Those traits, correctly called upon, can unlock the actions/
that make fear undone and open up life’s passions.

Teach Me With Your Smile: Romantic IMprov Sonnet

January 11, 2012

 Will you teach me,

 and let me see

 how you’ll reach me

 without poetry.

 Send your smile

 from your sweet face.

 Rest your gaze awhile;

 fill my empty space.

 Talk to me deep

 with dulcimer tones.

 In my mind creep

 through touch, computers, phones.


 Then, at last, when we again meet,

 I’ll savor your wisdom with no repeat.

Pay Tithing first. Then,/
you learn how much you don’t miss /
it. That surprised me.
