Sonnet Poem

I originally wrote this as an assignment in a creative writing class. Write a sonnet in the Shakespearean form of iambic pentameter.

Autumn Storm By Firelight

© more by Katherine Marek

Published: June 2011

A flash of lightening streaks across the sky.
We huddle close beneath the trembling eaves
As thunder roars a nightmare lullaby
And strips the trees outside of summer leaves.

The fire is warm. Its light is warmer still.
A gentle beacon holding back the dark.
Yet, in the light of day, we know we will
Deny the fearful pounding of our hearts.

The ancient wonder once again is near.
The fury of the storm awakes our past.
When gods and nature both were to be feared.
And spells of warding were by fire cast.

An autumn storm returns us to that place
When nature's glory awed the human race.
