Rain in April

My #8 for National Poetry Month

April rain brings sonnets

written by bedraggled poets

seeking shelter

beneath sodden trees.

their romantic hearts

beat time in iambs, seeking

the right enjambment

to induce swooning

at parties of vacuous women

and balding men.

shall i write sonnets

to their angels, tears

waiting to flood,

or tercets to trees

their tenderness piercing veils

as i wrap myself in the warmth

of leaves
