Mi Amor – a sonnet


I will soar higher, faster anywhere
Craving to achieve my desired  result
I can go astray and be lost somewhere
Ascending in great vertical extent

Let me journey through beyond the rainbow
And witness a pot of gold at the end
With thee my fervour hope and zeal I vow
To advance and never ever dare bend

Better yet see the universe afar
There is more beyond, I am sure of that
Greatness awaits, a magnitude of star
I feel it through, convinced without a doubt

But i am lost in your arms, undisturbed
Mi amor,  with you here I am secured.



This is my first attempt to do a Shakespearean Sonnet but I simplified mine by simply sticking to the 10 syllable per line count with a rhyming scheme of ababa, cdcd, efef, gg

I still follow the fourteen lines in a Shakespearean sonnet though. The first twelve lines are divided into three quatrains with four lines each. In the three quatrains the poet establishes a theme or problem and then resolves it in the final two lines, called the couplet.


Inspired by Gina of Singledust’s, Sonnet https://alifelesslivedblog.wordpress.com/2019/01/05/a-sonnet-i-end-where-you-begin/

  1. Magnificent! Your words soar and carry a heavy heart to be free. To feel this in someone’s arms is bliss and grace. My dear your sonnet is pure and undiluted. So impressed! ❤️❤️❤️❤️

  2. Bravo – I rarely do Sonnets.
    Too true about getting lost in comforting arms.

    You have reminded me of when I travel with my hubby. While he works – I explore. Eventually there will come a time when we can explore together.

      1. You should give it a try…you will have fun..like soduko..you’ll never put down your pen unless you get the perfect syllable count without compromising the message you want to convey and the rhyme as well..

  3. Simply amazing! Your words truly evoke strong emotions from me as I read it. Please continue to share your gift of prose to the rest of the world. We will all be in a better place because of it.

  4. A beautiful masterpiece! Happy to see you glean your seeds of inspiration where I love to find mine – Gina’s words just seem to whisper in your ear, don’t they?
    Bravo!!! Thanks so much for all your views and loyal support, Dear Friend!!!
