A PASSING .. sonnet

This time she appeared like a summer breeze,

from dark shadows drying the morning dew.

She floats gracefully like butterflies do,

coming towards you like a new mystery,

one flower to another silently,

bathed in jasmine odor and lilac hues.

  Amazed by the wonderful sight of you,

so overwhelmed by such a rare beauty.

You feel her long hair caressing your chest,

her passionate whisper a final test,

as she moves slowly pass you, relentless,

expressing eternal love she goes by.

To a million colors you close your eyes,

lay down comfortably smiling and die.

Raymond- Where so many view dealth as life's final insult (or assault) this poem paints the event in a more hopeful hue.  I a great many cases, where it is the natural culmination of life or our many maladies, it comes precisely as you stated here.   Good write

Wow, what an ending.  Thought maybe something else was going to happen.  Seriously though, I thing you did a fantastic job on the sonnet.

This was beautiful indeed. I am no good at all at form poetry, although someday, someday, I wil try to conquer the sonnet. There are some here who do them quite well, David Turner for one, is a master! Anyway, I thought you did quite nicely with the whole write. I am no good at telling you if it is correct form or not, but I CAN tell you the wording was just as tender as it gets.
Now I know what goes on in a MAN'S head at times, lol..
And whata way to go if you were going! ahhhhhhhhhhhhh....
nice work,
