Dreams Do Show


“All days are nights

to see till I see thee,

And nights bright days

when dreams do show

thee me.”


― Shakespeare; William, Sonnets



Elfje:            (Cinquain)



mathematically perfect

instruments unique sounds

what do you hear





as front follows front

cyclical weather patterns

hot cold rain hot cold




why is love such a common poetic theme ? ? ?
because love is such a hard thing to describe
philosophers go to great lengths to prescribe
but poets can explain the word in a dream

analogies, metaphors swiftly drip from the poet’s  pen
feelings physical, emotional and spiritual
mixed and matched with words lyrical
learned on the laps of the mothers of men

love is in the mind of the beholder
sensations essential to a time and place
objects or persons which we cannot efface
sentiments that grow stronger as they become older

thank you Shakespeare for the sonnet
for the purist it is truly mnemonic
