I enjoy reading and been doing this as my past time a lot.
Love cooking, and learning in general. But I am not overly fond of school.

10 Syllables a line.
14 lines makes a Shakespearean poem. Did I fit the quota? What do you think about the imagery? Is it a bit confusing?

Music Stand

April 16, 2021


The skeleton of the stand, scratched and worn
has no skin to wear between its fingers.
The knuckles are fastened but the grip's torn.
It for 'ere wears the colours of mourners.
It's creaky and fallen many of times.
Reverberates along the spine like trees
swishing under the unjudging winds' lines.
And those fair lines sings the song to the key.
But don't underestimate its great wide base.
For the screws keep a struggling tripedal
up and kickn'. 'Tis a three ridged mace.
The stern, unbreakable shape: the triangle.
In spite of damage find that trusty stand
take long strides and singing high on pride land.
So, this is my first time writing a Shakespearean sonnet. Third time making a sonnet, and I was going to describe a pickle barrel and how the salts sting lol. What do you think?

    RE: Of course! And haha oh no lol! Where was the time when everything was so elegant? XD
    Aww thank you! Haha, I can’t take full credit for the transitions since that was the prompt but thanks. :) Oooh that’s a great idea if I ever lengthened it. Haha, I kind of tried to make it like that was the child who’s passed away’s slice to kind of show how it still hurts the parents and yeah definitely!

    This was really great! There was such amazing imagery- I could really picture this stand and wow Shakespearean sonnets are sooo hard so amazing job! My favourite line is "has no skin to wear between its fingers." because that's just such a unique way of describing it!
