sand & sonnets

i could memorize sonnets and recite
them back to you, but those measured letters
are only few grains of sand in comparison to the desert
i hold – make it rain, and watch as all of the emotions
run hot and cold, weak, and then bold –
watch me melt and sift through the last scars of the land
i’ll bring the earth up to your feet so
you may firmly stand

  1. This is honestly gorgeous. Your metaphor of the ‘measured words’ of a sonnet being like ‘grains of sand’ really, really worked for me.
