Arrow of Eros penetrates my heart free from sinful cost.

Shakespearean sonnet attempt using #poetslineprompts for inspiration)

Ensnared within a spell bound utterance
candescent waves whisper to me forgotten
secrets, oculus, divine sustenance
nourishing essence celestially sent.

Abandoned to lustrous liberation
ethereal kalopsia, mirage
of primal existence, arts creation
painted beneath naked monolith stars.

Whimsical wisps of fantasy tear stained
embraces ancient scent of purity
passion brings forth efflorescence long waned
essence awakes carnal reality.

My Psyche disarmed, arrow of Eros
penetrates my heart free from sinful cost

Wild Ginger.

English / Shakespearean Sonnet

mikewildyelginger1

Afresh, the past a lingering shadow

lost flowers among a field of old weeds.

Creeping through life’s journey, poison grows

for blossom always, do the fears we feed.

Alas, I must abstain from dark beliefs.

Water not those drowning in fallen tears.

We shall tend our petals, water our leaves.

With love, adoration, our future clears.

This bloom upon my heart, your honeyed touch

loves gently imposed photosynthesis.

Clarity!  I see you have tended much

beyond dark shadows of lingering mist.

Be us not lost flowers in life’s treason,

Be us weeds, loves blossom beyond reason.
