A Tapestry of Colours: A Sonnet by Manatita

Source

Rain clouds are descending,

Like a multitude of sentient beings.

Struggles rise from the embryo;

Sometimes taper with passing age.

All around is wonder;

Yet my heart is paved with sorrow.

Spring rises;

Nature offers solace on solemn days.

Hope pushes me,

In search of an unfathomable tomorrow.

I rise and sleep, and sleep and rise…

Still no beacons; no virgin dawns.

Beneath this murky veil, my flame burns brightly;

Unknowingly, I pursue routinely, my own desires.

-Manatita, (Bard of Solace), 12th October, 2014, © Copyrighted

This is different and I could relate. I dislike gloomy days. I loved the cartoon. Ha. Just think spring will follow winter! Yea.

Thanks, Ruby.

Because of what you say, I must ask you lovingly. Do the other poems seem ethereal? (this is what I try to do) but are they too lofty, too distant? Your views appreciated. Much peace.

I read this twice to really appreciate the meaning. You speak of the journey of life. Very beautiful, Manatita.

Nice one bro. I have really found it difficult in writing a sonnet. I hope one day I would write one but i feel i'm not up to the task at the moment. How have you been. Its been a while

Let hope keep pushing and let us keep pursuing until the rainbow appears. My latest article also features photos of the rainbow. How cool is that?

Brave Warrior, You are quite clever. I feel that I'm quite skilful at using words. Yes, there is always a hidden meaning. So glad you found it. Gratitude.

Taiwo, Yes, Bro.

I was thinking of you, too. I think of all my friends. I know that Uni has started. How are you getting on? Lots of good wishes to you.

Dee, my answer to you seem to have disappeared. Happens sometimes. Let us wait. Will return here again. have a great Sunday!

If you wish for one from this world, then I'm sending it to you. If you wish for one from the other world, well, rdsparrowriter, you've got company.

He he. Thanks for your kind contribution. Peace.

Springtime is what I like most, just like the others. You can do anything without interruption.

Thanks for sharing this sonnet. I'm a fan.

Well Bro,

I am trying to catch up with you. He he ...

Seriously I am only joking but I feel that you have come on leaps and bounds, as they say. I feel that the potential was there, just perhaps that you were not writing so much poems.

Much gratitude for your loving contributions. Best wishes to the family.
