Michael, I don't think I have seen an acrostic sonnet before so well done firstly on that. You always seem to Excel yourself but I guess you have to sleep of roses sp to speak before you can do the club workshop.
I guess the moral of the story is 'love will save us if it's true love that is , from any beasts, poison or anything else that gets in the way.
I only gained a grasp on this format just over a year ago. Before this, I was unaware, and I guess wary of them. I feel, that by persevering with them, this has improved my other forms too. The more colours a painter has to hand, the better the painting, right?
me too like hellon is not a fan of sonnets but I started to like it Coz of Sir Ben and also You. ..
I like this tale like piece ..so powerful and and the imaginary was epic. .. very fine choice of words and for that you deserve a 5/5 vote. ..
Thank you guys. When I say these words out loud, I hear iamb, but now I don't know. I just write to how it sounds to be and try to start it off with an unstressed sound - 'try' being the operative word! lol
Thanks, again. I really do look to you both to highlight these details.
Luce, I might just take your advice - knowing me, I will write a perfect iambic sonnet for once! lol
Michael, I liked this a lot. Not only did you write an acrostic but through in Sonnet just for the heck of it? I liked the story line, dark, brooding but yet love in there too. From reading your comments I know you struggled with meters but I think you really pulled a lot out with the confines of putting sonnet together-very cool!
Thanks, Brenda. I've been immersing myself in the Sonnet form, trying to improve my knowledge. They don't come to me quite as easily as they do for other writers. We won't name names, hey! But, I'm glad that Sir Lancelot sonnet show off has left PnQ's. Lol
