Mi Amor – a sonnet

img-9a61e9565e4afd4d3d4fe52bd7e29c57-v

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 fervor 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.

 

Note:

This is my first attempt to do a Shakespearean Sonnet but I simplified mine by simply sticking to the 10 syllables 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.

P.S.

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

    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.

        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..
