Pansies

(A Sonniolet)

.

.

Those tiny seeds I placed deep in the ground

Were watered all freely and left to grow.

Then nurtured soil weekly to keep them sound,

Those tiny seeds I placed deep in the ground.

I dreamt they’d be the best flowers around.

Those tiny seeds I placed deep in the ground

Were watered all freely and left to grow.

.

Then from the fertile earth a shoot did sprout,

A delicate sprig with a promise of joy.

I tended the dirt to keep the weeds out,

Then from the fertile earth a shoot did sprout,

A wondrous miracle without a doubt,

A beautiful blossom, each to enjoy.

Then from the fertile earth a shoot did sprout,

A delicate sprig with a promise of joy.

.

Now blessed with a dash of white, yellow, blue,

The color burst forth from my new pansies.

They proudly displayed color, tint, and hue,

Now blessed with a dash of white, yellow, blue.

With smashing smile, it’s beaming right at you,

They flash pizzazz like little dandies.

Now blessed with a dash of white, yellow, blue,

The color burst forth from my new pansies.

.

I cherish each little tinted treasure.

Their graceful presence gives me much pleasure

.

Author Notes A story about Pansies: from planting, to growth,and finally to bursting colorful blooms.


What I did here was create a Sonniolet. Its takes the conventional Sonnet format of three quatrains and rhyming couplet in iambic pentameter, and replaces it with three Triolets and rhyming couplet. Still in iambic pentameter. Triolets are usually in tetrameter. So both forms have been slightly modified to create this format.


This is a photograph that I took in March, when I was in Vegas
