Weekend Writing Prompt #18: Poetry Challenge – Write a sonnet on a theme or subject of your choice. – Sammi Cox

Walking Around Laguna Lake

 I love walking around Laguna Lake

Stillness of reflection in the water

Evergreen trees and plants soothed my headache

Mothers enjoyed strolling with their daughters

Fishing lovers rewarded with plenty

Kids cast fishing lines along with brothers

Ducks snoozed under the shade joined by many

Birds perched on Myrtle trees of bright colors

Descending sun cast long shadow of me

Trailing behind the same speed as my feet

Walking for two miles bent and stretched my knee

Sweat and tiredness asked for water and treat

I couldn’t resist the pleased invitation

Sat on the beach, admired the creation


The Shakespearean or English sonnet follows a set of rules of three quatrains and a couplet and follows this rhyme scheme: abab, cdcd, efef, gg. The couplet arrives in the form of a conclusion, amplification, or refutation of the previous three stanzas. https://www.poets.org/poetsorg/text/sonnet-poetic-form
