My dreams

A Poem by Terrestrial.42

This would be my sonnet... it's actually an italian sonnet, which was kind of hard to do.


My dreams

My dreams resonate with potent visions,
Which take me from my home to distant stars.
I see lands lost to time: earth’s faded scars,
And future’s cities among the heavens.

Some nights the ocean’s whispering deafens,
On others I strain to hear the pulsars’.
Often I’ll walk the red surface of Mars,
Edge its canyons until my pulse quickens.

Although my night wand’rings are breathtaking,
Eventually they come to a close:
My mind is pulled, unwilling, to waking,
Where I’m confined to muscles aching,
And feeble efforts to translate in prose
Pictures whose colours are slowly flaking.

Completely agree with Lilith. Did you do this for a class or did you just want to do a sonnet? well, if it was for class I think you deserve all the points possible.

Lovely poem!
I cannot find any flaws in it; it's just beautiful.
Keep writing!

Hey, I'm a 17-year-old Canadian girl who loves action movies and sherbert ice cream. Winter is the best season; I hate the heat and the sun. I love writing, but don't get to do it often enough. Hop.. more..
