A saraband sonnet for the Whispers of the Soul Contest.
| Fountains spring from back of the moon.
A beauty argent, limpid; streams.
Drenches my empty heart with boon.
Tendrils entwine the inky sky,
Of beams that sparkle, glitter, shine.
Afloat in heady dreams held high.
A grace remains forever mine.
Tender light caresses my soul,
And wipes my somber mood wholly.
Glimmering light quenches my whole.
The jewel surfaced canvas shines
In blackness , holes peeping behind
The fleecy, candy clouds and glows
With rays that bore my gloom, and grind.
