Wink and A Prayer


To prove how absolutely asinine I can be, I have challenged myself to write a sonnet a day for the next thirty days.

Here is today's.

Sonnet Two: Wink Wink

Last night the falling branches struck my dreams.
I woke with noisy ocean in my bones.
I'd seen great tidals fingering my seams,
And sailed back to sleep, and heard you groan.
The children woke and donned their little boots,
I trampled out in mine and cursed the snow.
I fear I said a lot worse words than shoot,
Cold makes me mean and cranky, as you know.
Today my dumb dog thinks I'll take her walking.
I tell her look, the snow's still coming down.
She suffers to comprehend when I am talking,
I suffer from a lack of Pho in town.
The tree that once skimmed heaven lies in grass
Please bring me tea, and tell me this won't last.
