A sneak peek at the July Challenge, I have written the first half of a Sonnet (7 lines) and Charley over at Life in Portofino has agreed to dive in and write the second half. I must admit, Lynn Burton got me thinking about nightmares with her recent post called Dream and it fed this quite well! Good luck, Charley!
Beneath the bed a garden sits and waits
Smooth the sheets, my head upon the pillow
Asleep am I until the chaos breaks
Carrots clawed by digging armadillo
Nightmare screams from radishes upended
Oh, Stevenson! Upon this counterpane,
Your childhood verses here would be splendid,
