My friend Jemmy promised me a challenge and it landed with a boom! The Australian sonnet!! This one too I tried! 🙂
Here is the structure:
- written over 3 quatrains and a couplet of iambic pentameter or decasyllabic lines.
- Rhyme scheme: abab cdcd effe gg
- Theme: Love of some form
WarriorI hear you even as you move with stealth, my majestic African warrior the gleam of your naked body your sheath bestriding lands forbidden in splendour I hear your voice as it calls out to me taunting, breaking me I feel a shudder the deep resonance ripping through my being your song of woe and conquests my rudder I sense your presence as the winds rush by my cover cloth madly trailing the breeze I am immobilized by your wild heat your energy rips through me and I sigh, I welcome your light shedding its pure bliss I melt at your touch as I take you in Copyright © Celestine Nudanu 20/11/13 I appreciate your patience with me as I catch up on your blogs. Thanks a million! Shalom
