A Lost Dream

So I've realized that it has been a while since I posted anything on this blog, so here is a poem I wrote from my poetry class this semester. This is my sonnet:

My thoughts began to wander through the room
But then my eyes were opened by the sight
The vision before me came in the night
I was awakened by the glowing moon.
My mem’ry was swept away by a gloom.
This dream I dreamt had vanished with the light.
I continued on but could not excite
The hope to remember would not come soon.
I continued on for a great extent
The image had left and gone far away
My hopefulness seemed to vanish as well.
Lonely I waited only to lament.
The darkness left and slowly changed to day.
My thoughts left me in this cold, empty hell.

Deep! So when do we get to see the poem you wrote from spending time in Kolob/nature?

The poem is due on the 21st, so maybe around that time. I'm not making any promises though.
