A sonnet, I lament, for me too daunting is such a task

especially today when mine poetics is on it’s last gasp

though hard as I try might to do what Miz Q may ask

but much thanks I must give her on behalf of my mind

stretched far by whatever daily prompt I should find

alas I exhaled more mine than inhaled others’ lines

a lesson well learned, t’would not a future mistake

when another Miz Quickly challenge I may undertake

such learning and listening – the wise given and take

I hope that a weekly Miz Quickly prompt may be found

thus more exercise for creativity does comes around

when this fine monthly challenge has gone to ground

The end. I curtsey. I bow. I must go now.

QKJ #31: Write Sonnet #1 (which I have not done)
