Love Sonnet 229 sonnet poems

When trophies rained upon my neighbor’s yard,
With not a trickle spilling on my lawn,
Seems that misfortune fell on me so hard,
Through nights of darkness without hints of dawn;

Time pelted me with woes that I can’t shake,
To fill my cup to fullness ever since
That day this yoke my shoulders vowed to take,
That all my brows, with salty sweats would rinse;

But lifeline bridged the sea, cast from your hands,
To fetch this castaway from raging waves,
At last in your embrace I found dry lands,
Your eyes, the guiding stars this sailor craves;

. . . . . Let trophies rain, but love is what I’ve sought,
. . . . . Or else, the bright sunshine that your love brought.

I expecially loved the lines ‘. Let trophies rain, but love is what I’ve sought,
. . . . . Or else, the bright sunshine that your love brought.’

She was a traveling soul. The galaxy resting above her nose. I’d sit & stare. Wondering where the stars would go next. Both young & in love I let go. Tracing together swirls of color. The planets all together aligned.

Please take my hand, for I am blind. I’ve lost my path and my sense of touch. I’ve fallen, for my hands and feet are behind. Please let me hear, for all is in a hush. My wrist and ankles
