Today’s Prompt for the NaPoWriMo was, “Today’s prompt comes to us from Vince Gotera, who wrote his “family member” poem for Day 20 in the form of a curtal sonnet. As Vince explains, the curtal sonnet is shorter than the normal, fourteen line sonnet. Instead it has a first stanza of six lines, followed by a second stanza of four, and then closes with a half-line. The form was invented in the 1800s by Gerard Manley Hopkins, who used it in his famous poem “Pied Beauty”. So for today, I challenge you to give the curtal sonnet a whirl. It doesn’t need to rhyme — though it can if you like — and feel free to branch out beyond iambic pentameter. Happy writing!” Here is my attempt.
MISSED YOU DEAR!!!!
Even though I miss you, when you are not there,
And I think of all the things to say, my soul to bear,
A list I have made of things to do, and places to go,
Adventures to take on paths we don’t know,
My mind makes up the stories that I have to tell,
Of the dreams set free and fears that I quell.
And now that you are here, I feel delight,
Imaginary lists and conversations be forgotten might,
Just three words that sums it all, tells you that your were always near,
Only words I want to say, only words you want to hear,
Missed You Dear!!!!!
