Thank you to Monica from Look Around who let me guest post a poem this week. It’s a new one called ‘Despite’ an Italian Sonnet.

look around!

Italian Sonnet

Could we talk? Explore the world through my eyes?

Meeting — the divide between us could heal;

Clarity strikes, moments of truth concealed,

Hiding our secrets — I’d like not to lie.

Underneath the layers, more words contrived,

‘Till I’m unsure what’s real, only that truth cries.

I can’t hate you, my guilt itself revealed,


by Amanda Eifert

I wish between us all words said were real.

To move on when life used to mean — to hide.

Gold leaf of paper, are letters sent blessed,

Back and forth notes, develop us, obsessed.

Into each other we were grafted fast,

Keep holding on we’ll survive through harsh –

Times, sins we should’ve skipped, now such a farce;

Still in our hands, we hold each other’s hearts.

        Summer there right? So pretty hot all around I’d imagine? A few warner days here, still snowy and winter but sunny sky’s and some melting.

        Been a good summer. Cool spell for a couple of days currently. Plenty of summer left though. Equinox is on 21st March. Plenty of days til then. Usually we can still be swimming until easter which is April 15th this year

    That friend of mine came back from Toronto. Some funny stuff happening there. In regards to the adventures of this city… we are whittling a few things down. I should like to go to the land of Ursa sometime 😎
