I walked an hour beneath a wet-ink sky,
On parchment and the traces of a way,
And followed songs I'd heard when it was day...
In lower places then, now straying high,
Moors formed from echoes when the night birds cry
Past temples, all at once too far away.
I learned that I'd forgotten how to pray,
And all I knew at last was how to lie.
But all the creeping crumbled stars were blind,
Their progress smeared in circles smiling wide
Through stippled firmament and cracking blue
And I left weeping, humbled, far behind,
No empty pen to show how I had tried,
Yet walking still, another hour, for you.

this lovely sonnet is chock full of beautiful images that make me sigh...and shiver in awe!  favorite line, "moors formed from echoes when the night birds cry."  I know there must be a very personal meaning to this poem...would love to know the symbolism and meaning.  Love your sonnet, your iambic pentameter rocks!
