Day 42/365

Reality bending upon the scene

feeling more common than naught

where searching seems to be caught between

the gap amidst meaning and thought.

Focus here my darling dear

the perimeter is all in the past

the present time drape is quite shear

perceptibility may not last

Obstacles you see in the distance

or fences found in your course

need only but your persistence

let fear not impede your source

Illusion is binding you in the barb

Let go and relieve yourself from the garb.

Sonnet - a short rhyming poem with 14 lines. The original sonnet form was invented in the 13/14th century by Dante and an Italian philosopher named Francisco Petrarch. The form remained largely unknown until it was found and developed by writers such as Shakespeare. Sonnets use iambic meter in each line and use line-ending rhymes.
