  • Passage Into Antiquity: a sonnet

    While on a sojourn into the mountains
    I came across an old abandoned car
    With windows broken and doors on the ground
    Red rust covered its body like a scar

    How the car got there I will never know
    Maybe while on a drive the car just died
    Or was left by someone who once lived here
    Or had been driven by Bonnie and Clyde

    I committed this spot to memory
    thinking that I might return here some time
    I'd tow this car from its predicament
    And return it to its former prime

    Then noticed a skunk made the car a home
    And thought I'd be best to leave it alone.

    I love it. I looked up sonnet and it sure has a lot of rules and a few strange words that I have to look up.

      Hi Brainwreck. Thank you. I am learning and was my first attempt to write one and it didn't qualify under all the rules. I'll keep trying.

    Whether or not Shakespeare would approve, I like the sonnet posted here and would not see it removed. Certainly, you made the correct decision in leaving the skunk to his home position. Thanks for sharing cc.
