"recondite" (mini-sonnet)

Every night
    the world again
        turns dark

    and only
        you behind
            the world

resting in an
        redoubt one

    hardly knows
        to picture --
            much too

    for thought (so
        smart about

    our places &
        geographies) --
            you remain

they say right
        you are

[There, now I've shown one "micro-sonnet" and one "mini-sonnet." This could suffice, though perhaps it'll prove meet to repeat these forms some bit -- to give a fuller sense of their particular uses.]

likum this. Need to read your older posts for form-speak...

who said, that why go into the woods and deep jungle seeking the truth..

that while you were out, the elephant is at home quietly sleeping?


I like it. Much peace you bring at night.

not too sure I'd heard it either.
