wow !!! the last day of the challenge !! & i posted every day !! i am so proud of myself. since it is walpugisnacht, i am posting a poem i wrote a few years ago … one of my first “new” sonnets.
apple blossom dreams. a night of drunken
misconceptions, lost in a vast orchard.
wondering, wandering, tripping, laughing.
a full moon, moving through mystery clouds.
the sky full of stars. a night I will not
forget, details lost within the maze of
low-lying branches. the sweetest fragrance.
the wind picks up & blossoms fall like snow.
i think i am lost. did i see your face
reflected in the moon amongst the clouds?
did i see your eyes sparkling with the stars?
the orchard opens into a corn field.
newly-turned earth waits for the fertile seed.
apple blossom dreams. love under the trees.
