Sunday Sonnet!

New Day.(WP).


I did not choose this domicile to root,
Secreted by rough rocks and sunless trees,
Few passers-by venture this way on foot,
Though being in the leeward of sea-breeze;
My advent here divined by God of Chance,
Who grasped my latent life on Zephyr’s wing,
Where merrily I led a fulsome dance,
Unceremoniously me here to bring;
Within my nature lies the will to be,
No matter where or how I find myself,
Transmuted from potential into me,
According to the Oracle of Delph;
And now you see my pretty yellow head,
Intent on bringing joy, sans tinge of dread!

  5. Oh, such lovely flow and so appealing, it drew me in. Capturing, the line “Who grasped my latent life on Zephyr’s wing” flowed with your prose so well and led me to a whimsical enjoyment of today’s verse…

  8. I like the sense of joy and playfulness! Shades of Wordsworth’s ‘violet by a mossy stone’, too.

  10. I’m working backwards through the posts tonight, having been away a lot recently, and catching up on your beautiful prose is so apt, so true and so very peaceful, Bushka. I do so enjoy my forays into your world…
