Creative Act, 2/22

Missed yesterday due to the creeping crud, well, creeping all over me. I’m better tonight, though, and back with a new theme for everyone out there in Internetville. I’m combining a suggestion of “love letters to things I care about” with the form of poetry, which I find I’m most excited to return to (and TW will be happy about that!).

So, with that, here’s a love poem for a perfect moment, yesterday, just at dusk, that made me stop in the middle of the street because I couldn’t stop looking at the world around me.

For those interested in form, it’s a sonnet rhyme structure alternating slant and fixed rhyme, but without metrical constraints to match.
