Sunday Sonnet!

Spent leaf (WP)


Impassioned pleas for mercy go unheard
When stifled by insane pursuit of greed,
Compassion languishes in tomb interred
As though from thence never to be retrieved;
Enfeebled sterile voices fail to stir
Bowels of human kindness to respond,
Vain cowardice shamefacedly demur,
By compromise their dignity long conned;
Faint, haltered hope, like gentle morning breeze
Imbues new dawning day with waking life,
Deflated spirit kindles to increase
Determination to o’ercome the strife;
As fleeting be our precious time unfurled,
As transient are the values of the world.

  5. Powerful words dear Bushka. So very appropriate for what’s happening in our world today. When I was in Wales immersed into the beauty of the Brecon Beacons, I was able to pretend that I was removed from it all…..:) Hope you are enjoying a lovely weekend, despite the madness. Janet xxx
