Day 8: Shakespearean Sonnet

So, running a little behind, but circumstances… Blah, blah, blah. You’re not interested in circumstances. I’m making up for lost time today. Here’s yesterday’s poem – not using the day’s prompt – but sticking to my plan for lyrical poetry.

The Shakespearean Sonnet: 14 lines formed into one stanze of three quatrains and a concluding couplet: ABABCDCDEFEFGG

Let your anger feed the hate,
and hear the roar of doom prevail.
Scream and froth, and be the bait,
Passions smash and doom the gale.
Yet be the river running deep
That bends and curves ever coursing
In silent depths of grace, to creep
Forward moving gently, forcing.
Be the beginning and the end.
Let the tides of change replace
In loving grace and heartfelt wend
Breathing life and in that fluid place
Blissful quiescent,
Peace, effervescent.
