#Poetry – my first #sonnet – A Sonnet of Dark and Light

I have been inspired by Radio 4’s recent day of poetry to have a go at writing sonnets… this is my first attempt:

A Sonnet of Dark and Light

How slow these dark and trouble filled nights can go.
The clouds swirling in oppressive plumes and drown
Any thought of starlight or gentle moon glow,
The one comfort is duvet wrapped around.

Here morning light comes in grey and mellow
Cocooning bed warmth slowly receding
And hot steaming tea a welcome fellow
It washes the last tangles of mourning.

Now the greatest choice lies ahead, bright day
Or sapping night, the way forward is mine
A choice to take or waste fretting away
The power here to take up is divine.

A bright future of soft gentle moonlight
and a heart filled with given love so bright.
