    Like the rose this beauty is a piece of art.
    I cannot fault a poem from the heart.

    It's a coincidence, because I was set a much detested English Sonnet to write for school work yesterday - I think I completely ruined all iambic pentameter, lol
    I like this form, it reminds me of one I read by W.B.Yates. interesting write:)

      Thanks, haha well, for starters don’t worry much about the meter. Worry about the rhyme. Once you are good with working with rhymes, then pay attention to the meter and ignore the rhyme and the meaning of a poem for a moment, just focus on the meter. Once you get the meter right, then focus on everything if possible. So, you may end up writing a couple of sonnets till you get there or you might just need to write some till you master it. I’m still writing a couple till I get there, and I bet as the years come, I’ll still be writing more till I get there;)

      All the best!

    A scarlet rose’s scent may be heavenly, but a heaven sent rose is Everlasting. Thank you for sharing.

    Well done, Lucero. Two sonnets on the front page may not be a sight seen round these parts again for many a long year.
    I will have to try one of thse one day; I have never yet had the guts!
