Rainbow dreaming (Shakespearean sonnet)

by - Mr. Darcy   Jan 5, 2017

~ Rainbow dreaming ~

A bird singing upon the summer wind,

Along my corridor into the sky:

Enjoyed the worldly bounties on the wing,

But, then the sun did shrink, I know not why.

Who hath stolen this most sacred light,

And cast my mortal sack onto the fire?

A vision of you, reaper dressed in blight,

Removed my summer gifts with razor wire.

I glare with eyes of scorn oh darkest greed;

And drag your carcass in the flames of death.

Unlike your empty soul I'm like a seed

And this tough seed will take another breath.

~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~

In a blue sky a cloud so dark may bring,

A storm, but rain makes green of ev'rything.

~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~

~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~

    You know what caught me to read this Sonnet...the layout the spacing between each line. Usually Sonnets verses are written in stanzas and yes they look cluttered to me but that is how its written. But this just felt a bit more nice to read and not seem cluttered.

    The poem itself holds a lovely accent of English if that made sense. Its feels realistic and pleasing to read along with a flow..good write!
