New Beginnings - A Sonnet

photo- pixabay














Today, is a new beginning
see beyond the shadowy mists
our universe remains spinning
open your eyes to nature's gifts

Winter sings a blustery song
our state of being seems to drift
vigilant spirits remain strong
open your eyes to nature's gifts

Inside the womb of mother earth
light will bring an energy shift
spring brings promises of rebirth
open your eyes to nature's gift

Today, is a new beginning
open your eyes to nature's gifts

A Kyrielle Sonnet consists of 14 lines (three rhyming quatrain stanzas and a non-rhyming couplet).  
Each line consists of eight syllables. French poetry forms have a tendency to link back to the beginning of the poem, using the first and last line of the first quatrain as the ending couplet.

Rhyme scheme AabB, ccbB, ddbB, AB

    1. That it will as winter invites us to quiet our mind and still our soul for a new awakening.

  6. Opening my eyes (and heart) and inviting her magic in. Winter is cold and bright, today. My amaryllis just bloomed and there is a confused blue jay pecking at the window. I think Nature has been singing spring songs to winter's children. And we are loving it.

  7. I love the optimism here, Truedessa. Today is a new beginning indeed. I try to be optimistic and hopeful about the possibility of positive change. Winter really does have a beautiful song, one we should appreciate as our earth continues to spin as it always has. Really glad to see you in the new year, Truedessa.

  12. A compelling and mesmeric form upon which you have pinned beautiful lines. The repetitive line, in particular, is a triumph - both in its message and the notes that the words strike, spoken aloud. Lovely writing!
