Sonneteering


I wrote a sonnet. When asked if it would
rhyme- no. When asked asked for a meter, I could
not decipher why that was important.
Why make awkward the poem, an indent
after 10 syllables is limiting.
Can natural flow be found in such a thing
as a sonnet? Its a glorified fling
between some images and structuring!/
But soft! What light is at the end of the
tunnel? The sextet is softer by far.
Oh God! Its tones are sweet, its limits are
so wonderfully breached. Well. Could it be,
the octet, stretching back so won'drous fair, 
is no less for a sextet being there!

The End
