Bragging Rights (and a Sonnet of course!)


I wrote one sestina, 3 crowns of sonnets and 15 sonnet one-offs in the last two weeks. If that’s not brag-worthy, I don’t know what is! And here’s another one…they just keep writing themselves…

Sonnet Fever

I’m feeling like a diamond in the sky,
a dancing diamond, throwing off camera
sensors. Causing lens flares and sparks to fly!
I’m a dancing diamond, a chimera,
one that’s bragging in her latest sonnet.
It’s all that writing class’ fault that I
can’t stop composing really good sonnets!
Someone help me! I can’t stop writing, I–
need help. Quick call sonnets anonymous.
Get some poetic help on the line ‘fore
I lose my mind and become amorphous.
Where are you going? No don’t slam the door!
Sonnets–I think I love you. Everything
I see, becomes a sonnet of something.

In response to The Daily Post’s writing prompt: “Right to Brag.”
