Dance and Flood love's Sonnet


















Google Image



Waltz across my heart, oh blue sky, gaily
Let me put steps, oh white dreams, unfettered
Let me dance and be the sky, untethered
For here on earth life is chained, horribly
So dance the candid smiles we get rarely
Get flooded with compassion, unbridled
Come and be me, know the ocean here, trapped
Our whales and eagles echo candidly
Here shameless greed reigns, let’s be shameless too
Smile wide at rude faces and be happy
Flood the wicked with compassion and do
Forgive sinners, not the sin, be happy
Be the blatant envoy of nature too
For she’s the paper for life’s poesy

  4. I echo Mary's sentiments but after all it can't hurt and is better for us. Maybe what I mean is het them over the head with compassion ; )

  13. You surely have made this sonnet dance, even while addressing some of the ills of the world. I hope we can all rise to that level of compassion and joy.

  14. Nature has always been kind to me as I scribble my poetry down so I am a great supporter, sadly so many humans live but for the day and happily bequeath their children a chance of famine, flood and endless heartache. Hopefully we can also voice our concern in other arenas but with greedy politicians as well we are really in trouble.
