Acatalepsy 1 As the night sky slowly rose above the distant mountain tops, she watched the yellow and red streaks of light stream below her, cars like dancing ribbons in a river of dull gray. It was nothing like watching the white tide stroke the speckled shore with sunrays piercing the wobbly surface of the sea.

It’s a simple little english sonnet I whipped up for class the other week. Fourteen line, ABAB..GG format.
Hope you enjoy! I will try to post more often. Until then–
