Nonsensical Dreams (Sonnet)

Dear Friends,

This is only a practice Sonnet and for someone who writes about romance quite often (if you know me), a love Sonnet just wouldn’t work this time. So I incorporated one of my husband’s dreams and one of mine and created this. I mainly focused on Sonnet rules, rather than an enticing subject, so your feedback or critiquing is welcomed. If you notice any bloopers, don’t be shy, let me know. I’m learning, as this is a new adventure and of course, I hope this brings a smile, too!

Nonsensical Dreams (Sonnet)

Upon the hill resides a house so great,
Around each corner, hallways run for miles,
The rooms alone are like the size of lakes,
The space indeed creates a million smiles.

Inside its walls roam creatures of all kinds,
From lemurs to giraffes as tall as skies,
The scene itself completely redefines,
What should be truly isn’t all the time.

But just as quick as grins begin to form,
Fear takes their place abounding all around,
Cold sweats and shivers enter like a storm,
As spiders creep, the heart begins to pound.

Yet, as the sun begins to show its light,
Relief sets in erasing all the fright.

Love’s Decree

sunset 2 final

Your kindness
glows upon my world
pulling me into
forever surreal

When you give your love
my foundation shifts
like a gentle quake
I tumble in

Tenderly

you stir my soul
as a whirlwind
out of control

With you
I travel
the road to bliss
my heart’s content
a love so real

so I hope you don’t mind
reading it again, if you’ve

already seen it.)

Ruling

This obsessing has me fatigued
admittedly, you have me intrigued
For everywhere I look
you’re like a good book
I can’t seem to shake you
or bid you adieu
You live in my dreams
so real they seem
Invading my personal space
I need a hiding place
Your lips, your eyes
to be spellbound would be unwise
But, oh, how you make me feel
it’s positively surreal
I can’t commit to a declaration
of whether this is love or infatuation
although, I must concede to my desires
and the lighting of our fires
I’ve been arrested by your charms
as you hold me in your arms
My self control is missing
So sentence me to “kissing”

Just to see you smile

If I could,
I’d give you the sun
wrapped in joy and love
because it’s you
who I think the world of

I’d bring a cup of warmth
for your coldest days
and my eraser of compassion
would take away your pain

If only I could
you know I would

(a small, simple gesture is all it takes, sometimes)
Have a wonderful day! 

A Moment’s Peace

shade tree

Relaxation finds me beneath this tree
pondering life and sweet serenity
Butterflies do their carefree dance
in the air is the scent of romance

From where I sit in a patch of shade
squirrels scamper on the carpet of jade
Birds join in with a song or two
their melodies erase my moods of blue

Life bounces by, yet stillness abounds
calming every nerve with all unique sounds
Even so, complexities of living have me baffled
but deeply I feel there’s nothing I can’t handle

This pillar of strength shelters and embraces
while emotions change to different faces
I close my eyes to the whispers of the breeze
allowing my mind to finally be at ease
