Writing : Intro to Poetry,Day Ten: Future

Poetry, Day Ten : Future

Poetic Device : Sonnet

I received a mint plant from a good friend,

I planted it outside so it could grow.

That it’ll survive the winter I didn’t pretend,

Patiently I waited for the spring to know,

If my plant had braved the rough weather,

It stood  tall though it was light as a feather.

……………………………..

Daily I watch its growth and dance in glee,

I tell it, ‘I know you’d hang on for me.’

Meanwhile I notice more mints are spreading,

Sometimes  dogs may trample them I’m dreading.

……………………………………

Some day I’d like to ask the botanist,

If he’d help me because he’s a specialist.

A mint plant to me is very special,

I’ll need it to make my food tasteful!

……………………………….. 🙂

  1. This sonnet is real. It follows the form, yet it’s cast in your familiar voice. I like the theme, too: the planting and the plant and your reaction to it all. I’m fond of mint. Fortunately, where I am it readily grows.

    • Thank you so much Christopher. I sat in front of the computer but nothing came to mind, then suddenly I thought of the plant. I wrote it thinking no one is going to like it and I’m making a fool of myself.

      I really am pleased to read your comment. 🙂
