Hey everyone! For today’s post I thought I’d switch it up a little bit and post a sonnet I wrote. I haven’t mentioned it too much on here, but I love writing and especially poetry in particular. There is so much freedom in poetry, and it can be anything you want.
The sonnet I’m sharing today is called ‘Dear Rick’ and is based off of a crumpled note I found on the street. As you could probably guess, it was to someone named Rick. Sadly I don’t have a picture of the note, but I do remember it was written in bright blue ink and was pretty much said it was nice to meet you and I hope you enjoy this coat, which I’m guessing the note fell out of.
dear rick, it was great meeting you last night
read the crumpled note written in blue ink
could be a fantasy, left to ignite
to inspire, desire, or make a heart sink.
maybe we will meet again sometime soon.
whisked into a dream like wizard of oz
having high tea with the hatter at noon,
running free, playing cards without a cause.
i hope this coat brings you the warmth you need.
as if a coat could tame the raging storm
of a heart that continually bleeds,
wanting none of the hurt that was the norm.
maybe this note was just what he needed
leaving it here for masses to read it.
I hope you enjoyed this post, and I’ll see you all soon for another one! I’ll definitely be posting more of my writing in the future for you guys in the future, as well as some more photography and lifestyle content.
