Sonnet — April 27

For this Two-for-Tuesday prompt from Robert Lee Brewer’s Write Better Poetry blog:
Write a believe poem and/or…
Write a don’t believe poem.

Sonnet — April 27

I believe the earth is flat
because shape is trivial
to me and the pines straining
towards the sun.

A sun which loops around us
every day— me, the pines
and that squirrel teasing
Moriarty from a branch.

Tomorrow the squirrel will hunt for nuts
and the pines will hope for rain.
Doesn’t matter whether we’re clinging
to a globe or pressed on a pancake,

I’ll write another poem
just because it’s April.

    HA!
    I hope Moriarty doesn’t knock anything important off the edge.
