Here is a sonnet I wrote about the sun. I hope you enjoy.

Aurora

A sonnet by Angela Prendergast.

 

Morning, gleaming bright, blinding

The middle child of the great beyond

Darkness drifts away in fright

Summer flowers; delicacy grows so fond.

 

Soundless, it rises and falls

Squinty eyes, liquid tears below

A march of the day, standing tall

Kisses all, from friend to foe.

 

Bright, bold, beacon of hope

An endless cycle to return

Lambent, luminous; all awoke

Steady, lessons for each child to learn.

 

More than the size of this sphere; fervent, bold

You allow human life to behold.

A Prose Poetry Collection

Tic-Toc goes the clock. It is 2 a.m., the mind is racing. This poetry collection portrays the thoughts, perhaps overthought, of a vulnerable 21-year-old discovering who she is and what she stands for against the negativity around her. Falling victim to overthinking resulted in the creation of these prose poems that discuss everyday struggles and emotions.
Love, loss, time, and identity are a few themes highlighted in the poems that truly evoke raw emotions, and display the struggles of a young adult trying to find her clarity in a cluttered world.
