Celebrating a Year

week 186 ~ because I am still here I pause

with 10 comments

because I am still here I pause
to breathe the lilac-scented air
and wonder at its mystery there
are so many questions spring thaws
unlock no answers just because
I laugh and love with abandon
and believe in transformation
choosing contentment please don’t try
to warn me it’s but the storm’s eye
old winter has finally broken

  4. The emotion is deep, and heartfelt, and… oh wow, a wonderful rhymed tetrameter sonnet. How can I resist? Just wonderful.

    • hey, thanks! I suppose the decima is a sort of sonnet. I find myself drawn to it alot lately.
