Thursday photo prompt – Wisp #writephoto


THIS WEEK’S WORDS come from “Carrying Water to the Field” by Joyce Sutphen: afternoons, cultivating, water, wrapped, cut, across, surprise, turning, blade, melted, gulp, accomplished

Wisp of cloud rose into the air
A sign if it could just spare
From miles away a silent hope
Swimming across the seven seas
Surprise on an afternoon breeze
Cultivating that I could cope

The scope of which is accomplished
You know you are being cherished
And my heart’s melted by your care
Turning water into trophy
Wrapping my soul to ecstasy
Cutting my heart fair and square

I swear for a wisp of belief
A brief moment you’re everywhere*

* A Jeffreys Sonnet was created by Scott J. Alcorn. It is isosyllabic (only 8 syllable per line), 2 sestets with a cross rhymed couplet (the cross rhyme is in the 2nd to 4th syllable in each of the two lines of the couplet). Also there is a cross rhyme in the first line of the 2nd sestet (between the 2nd to 4th syllable), tying the 1st sestet to the 2nd. So the rhyme scheme would be: aabccb, (b)ddeffe, (e)g (g)e. The letters in ( ) are the cross rhymes.
