    Pov

    Thanks! The POV for the person in the poem is a young woman I know who is exploring her way outward.

    This has the distinct feel of a truism that might have been written in the 1800's. Perhaps even a bit earlier, but certainly from days when aphorisms were miniature morality stories.

    Sonnet for First Flight

    This morning, early rain so sweetly kissed
    my face, while all around me spicy leaves
    commenced to fall. The shifting air is bliss:
    a twirling cirque soleil that sharply weaves

    and flips. I long...

    Thank you, you are a dear to say so. Just tried it (see addition to my intro way above) and got shot down most horribly. I laugh at it now, and did then too, but it was still badly embarrassing.

    We're contemporaneous!

    Pub Goddesses

    Scent of a sweet, warm woman
    forever mingled with tomato tang
    deepened by garlic, broadened by rosemary
    sharpened by thyme.

    Lady of the Autumn Woods

    Why DID the chicken cross the road, you ask?
    No-no! 'Twas not to reach the other side.

    From the way the lines are written, I'd gained the impression Sandra is a kind of alter ego, perhaps a public persona, that, given sufficient energy, begins to take on a life of her own.

    Why thank you! That was one of those euphoric moments I get now and then. The poem was meant to help me remember it.

    An Empty House Remembers (sonnet)

    The empty house around me ticks and creaks,
    A moody end to evening's gentle rains,
    A brooding quiet as the daylight wanes,
    The secret language empty houses speak.

    What stories might this house...

    I ride in winter

    With thanks to the "The Rider" for inspiration.

    Who needs the grace of god, he jeered,
    when I can ride the autumn wind?
