If Only I Could Write a Sonnet [ sonnet ]

by Everlasting   Jul 22, 2019

If only I could write a sonnet, sigh
perhaps, my thoughts could get well organized,
or my ideas could become like pi.
Yes, transcendental! Often analyzed!
Or in a way, my thoughts could find a rhythm,
some sort of beat resembling the morse code
from which I could create an algorithm
that only I could easily decode.
But I'm about to finish writing one
and my ideas seem to be the same,
my thoughts have partially become aligned,
I guess I'm putting this sonnet to shame.

Thus, I may need to write a hundred more,
Or thousands of these sonnets, therefore.

      Lol Thank you S.T.A.R. But but go for it! With yours and mine we can create a roller coaster... mine going up hill then yours down the hill then I’ll write another going straight then you write another going up hill, I’ll write another going down hill and who knows, we might have lots of fun..
