BRIAN & ANGELA

LET'S ALL WORK TOGETHER ! A Mirror Sonnet

 

 

WE ALL have problems ~ big and small

Some of them we share with a Friend

We try to solve our own problems

Move on to a problem free end ! 

We work hard avoiding problems

Please help others how to avoid

Problem free ~ we all want to be

We want to be built ~ not destroyed !

We should all try to work smoothly

Ensure small problems ~ don't grow big

Please Love and Help all your Colleagues

Don't hog the limelight ~ don't be a PIG !

Be concerned for THEM ~ as Yourself

DON'T LEAVE ANYONE ~ STUCK ON A SHELF !

Be concerned for THEM ~ as Yourself

Don't hog the limelight ~ don't be a PIG  

Please Love and Help all your Colleagues

Ensure small problems ~ don't grow big  

We should all try to work smoothly  

We want to be built ~ not destroyed !

Problem free ~ we all want to be

Please help others how to avoid

We work hard avoiding problems

Move on to a problem free end !

We try to solve our own problems

Some of them we share with A Friend 

WE ALL have problems ~ big and small  

 

Thanks for visiting ~ comments welcome ~ Love BRIAN

 

A Mirror Sonnet only has 27 lines (not 28) Line 14

of the top Sonnet is not repeated and doubles as

Line 1 of the lower (mirror) Sonnet. Linguistically

it shouldn't work but surprisingly it does ~ try one !

    The need for a friend comes to everyone and this fine mirror sonnet outlines the reasons for being there to listen and comfort. A lovely read again Brian.

    • BRIAN & ANGELA

      Thanks FAY ~ I have now corrected and added a visual ~ please revisit ~ thanks BRIAN I try to emphasise that Halloween is also ALL SAINTS (Hallowed Eve) If we all acted as SAINTS the World would be a much better place ! Did you see the programme last night on Cornish Coastal Walks ~ awesome ! The East Coast is very tame by comparison ! Yours as ever BRIAN.

          • myself and me

            A beautiful poem in a beautiful shape.

            • BRIAN & ANGELA

              Thanks M & M ~ Pleased you liked the SUBJECT and the STRUCTURE ~ Yours BRIAN

            • orchidee

              A fine write Brian. Aww, but piggies are not rude, are they? No more than any other animals at the rush at feeding times?!
              Same as I must stop insulting cats, by saying 'Is it me singing or two cats fighting'?! lol.
              So - All Saints - Hallowmas (or Hallowmass) follows. Not that I go to 'Mass. Let's not get started on that! doh!

            • Goldfinch60

              Friends are special. Clever write Brian.

              • BRIAN & ANGELA

                Thanks ANDY ~ some days it is only Friends 7 Family ~ that make life bearable ~ AMEN ~ BRIAN

              • orchidee

                It's a horrible day celebrating Halloween in itself. Too much blackness, darkness, people dressing up as devils, etc.
                I know - some only go to witches covens for a bit of slap and tickle, but there's real dangers in it!

                • BRIAN & ANGELA

                  THANKS STEVE ~ I agree Halloween ~ Voodoo ~ Ouija ~ Tarot Cards etc ~ all these things provide a "Gateway" for SATAN to corrupt minds ~ we have a LIGHT PARTY @ Church which is well attended by Children and their Parents who don't want their kids corrupted by HALLOWEEN ! As usual I always try to spread a lttle PEACE & LIGHT yours BRIAN

                • FredPeyer

                  Nice writing, great subject, incredible craftsman!

                  • BRIAN & ANGELA

                    Thanks FRED ~ pleased you enjoyed it ! I'm always very pleased when it turns out as sensible and readable Line 14 back to ONE as it does as it was written Line ONE to 14 ~ but it does ! I guess the skill lies in choosing both the subject and words very carefully. The is the poets art always ~
                    WORDSMANSHIP ! Yours BRIAN

                  • Simone

                    I love that with most poems you explain how they are written. I have been trying to learn new ways to write. Thank you very good read. Friend are few and between.

                    • BRIAN & ANGELA

                      Thanks SIMONE ~ I appreciate your comment ! There are many many styles of Poetry ! If I post one I always try to explain how it is structure. Every POEM has a SUBJECT ~ I am a Performance Poet so if a POEM has STRUCTURE as well (Sonnet ~ Haiku etc) it makes it easier to read and much easier to recite ! Yours BRIAN ~ Your MPS FRIEND !
