Ben asked us to write a sonnet about the future

I still think I am in need however of a tutor

So please excuse the lack of expertise

As I try to make this look like a breeze


The future is what I make of it

What I make of it, is my future

Does that make me sound like a twit?

I’m really not good at this I admit.


Seriously though I just want happiness

Enough money to keep me out of a mess

And my kids to live happily ever after


That might sound like a little bit drab

But it’s all I could come up with, I know, sad

But if this I achieve, I will be glad

Your prompt: future

Today’s form: sonnet

Today’s device: chiasmus

I want to thank everyone for all you support over the last two weeks of the Poetry course.  I have been amazed at the lovely words both from new blogger buddies I have met through the poetry course and my regular blogger buddies who pass by to kindly read my rambles.

It is amazing once you get in to the groove of writing poetry daily, like most things it becomes easier.  Having said that I have a long way to go with this skillset, but I enjoy it which is the main thing.  So don’t be surprised if you see a few more, probably linked to challenges.

Justine xx

      Thank you. The photo was from the day before in our local park. I’ve been here four years and suddenly discovered three lakes in it! Wow…the sun was setting and the birds whizzing around. ‘Twas quite cold though. Thank you for coming by its lovely to chat x

        That must be some big park to have that many lakes. Nice to get a background on the picture. 🙂

    Loved the photo and the sonnet — you’re a brave lady because the sonnet is *not* my friend! You’ve made it look simple — and hey — stanza three — isn’t that what we all want? Nothing “twitty” about that, my dear! 😀

    Great post 🙂
