Rise and Fall

Rise and Fall…

A sonnet brings a rhythmic lilt to rhyme

Creating cadence with each rise and fall

Each word flows from the other keeping time

And simple syllables convey their all

There’s something soothing in its structured form

Like watching waves wash up along the shore

Hypnotic as it fluidly transforms

And pulls us inwards, passionate for more

Just like the ocean, poetry enthrals

As feeling builds through every onward surge

Until with great crescendo each wave falls

Internal tension powerfully purged…

So cleverly that surface ebb and flow

Stirs up emotion roiling deep below


Let me know what you think...
