Sonnet of Tears

Okay. I give you my sunday’s best. Here is another sonnet for the spring, written while in Spain.

SOFT RAIN BLESS THE AIR WHILE TEARS CLEANSE MY SOUL.
WHEN THE NEW DAY DAWNS IT WILL BRING FORTH GREEN.
GREEN AND THINGS FRESH AND CLEAN. THEN MAYBE THINGS
BOTHERING ME TODAY WILL NOT APPEAR

THIS BAD TOMORROW. TOMORROW SHED LIGHT.
WHAT I FEEL TODAY SEEMS IT MUST BE RIGHT.
BUT MAYBE MY CHOICES WERE NOT THIS BAD.
ONE IS UNABLE TO TAKE BACK THINGS SAID.

WHAT WAS SAID IS LOCKED INSIDE MY HEAD.
SELF-CONTROL FOR SWEET LOVE OF GOD IS GOOD.
TO THINK OF THESE THINGS IS BETTER THAN GOOD.
THINGS PLEASANT AND PURE AND STRONG AND WORTHY.

TOMORROW WILL COME AND IT WILL SURELY BE
FULFILLED WITH ALL THE RAIN OF TODAY.

  1. Si, Si, I agree with Juan, I like it very much, and so true the words do ring…to keep our minds on the things above, will keep our heads up, and songs of joy our hearts will sing.
    God Bless keep up the great work…thanks for stopping by.
