Today I offer something new. Well at least to me. This is my first attempt at an Italian Sonnet. It felt strange at first. Then I realized that it required a different approach to thinking of not only construction but words. When writing an English Sonnet I felt I could compartmentalize my thoughts easier. With the Italian Sonnet there needed to be a constant flow for eight line then bang, which directions. I do love the Italian Sonnet because there is a sense that I’ve gained some freedom in getting my thoughts out. Still required to be pithy, held to a rhyming scheme and get there are times like today’s subject it just felt great.
