A sonnet for Jackie Castle


Jocularity abounds in worn face,
Against subtle smile rests festive moon light
Castles defend honor to endless race
Kingdoms romance her gratitude’s slow might.

Inside a destiny of growing beast
Exudes marked disaster under sought trust
Captured fancy rails among the small feast
At proper glaring stare marks a loose fuss.

Seldom graded justice holds forth its brow
Trailed vision seeks to burst the sea coldly
Lesson emerges set free by garish throw,
Entering muddled silence near bold sea.
