Sonnet-Writing for Begonias.


If you have been unable, 

Recently, to write a proper sonnet;

Do not dwell upon it,

Do not give in to despair

For, there is something in the air

Something that flies towards you

And will hit you

Smack! Bang! Between the eyes.

An idea.

Or two.

Or millions.

Just for you.
And, bear this in mind, also;

If you are not meant to write a sonnet

You probably won’t;

Don’t worry;

Be happy with what you do write

And, maybe, one day,

You will write a sonnet by accident

Without trying

Thereby defying

Any logic

In poetry-creating.
PS just check the structure and the rhyme scheme of this poem – it is so not a sonnet. Who’d have thought?
