Sunday Sonnet!

Sunset colours (WP)


Farewell, dear friend, the best was not to be
That souls with common cause shall live as one,
The reason, now, is not for us to see
Until the running sands of Time be done;
Sharp pangs of pain grave grieving hearts pervade,
When peaks of expectation come to naught,
Temptation space of emptiness pervade,
And solace in alternatives are sought;
Let moments linger long to cogitate,
Like Nazarene bent writing in the dust,
Allowing dismal mood to dissipate,
Facilitating Hope to nourish Trust;
To part, brings past events into review,
To meet, opens the doors of vistas new!

  6. Your writing is terribly refunded. I have a sense of a message about going through the process of feeling and grief and not fighting it. Elegant as always Tasha 🤗🤗

    This has my head in a whirl – looking over the edge into a mystery. Very shapely sonnet, Elliott, and some lovely alliteration.
