Copyright 2013 Evelyn Sagrado Rodziewicz

This collection bears my sonnet compilation in the past years. It is based on my personal experiences, observation and summation of everyday life.

Poetry has its amazing beauty that conveys meaning in a creative way. It has always been my way of expressing my thoughts and emotions towards certain things that affect me everyday.

Few years of staying at home as fulltime housewife made me write. I’m not saying I’m good because I’m not. I haven’t tried publishing my writings before. But this first try might give me chance to see if I have future with it.

I will appreciate it very much if someone would read my sonnets and comment about it. I’d be happy to know if you could at least find a poem that you would like in this collection.

The cover picture was taken during the sunset in the beautiful, little island where I live.

The Sunset

Your bright face sinks in the wide horizon

Signalled the end of the day’s dominion

The tips of your rays painted the clouds in the sky

You display the magnificent colours up on high

Nothing can dim your beauty, my setting sun

You dictate the world that another day is gone

The twilight is your way of saying goodnight

Allow the people to rest and sleep tight

Go then dear, light up the other side of the world

Shed your power of life to behold

The darkened sky is your way of saying goodbye

Worry not for tomorrow never dies

See you again for another day

Seal it with a kiss of your astonishing beauty.

Scarlet Rose

Oh, Scarlet Rose, let not your beauty be faded away

Hold it still ‘til the wind and rain moved to the sea

Preserve a little fragrance for a brand new day

Kiss the morning dew that freshen you up from agony

Entangle not yourself from new bloom rivalries

Make your petals fall in long lasting series

Yield your brilliant colour with the gentle touch of the sun

Shine enticingly to turn the head of every man

Deliver your relinquished stance with pride and honour

Pity the bee that knocks into your door

Sharpen your thorns as shield from the trespassers

Defend yourself instantly and heighten your gears

Fear not! Your protector will come to the rescue

Love him in return for he is true.

The Blow

The fierce wind strikes wildly on trees

Whistle and hustle like a giant on his knees

Blowing his might that forced the leaves to fall

Shaking its balance of standing strong and tall

The bananas surrendered easily lying flat on the ground

The papayas desperately fell without a sound

The avocados fought and tried to stand still

Letting the fruits go shattered on the soil

The guavas swayed like a swing in the air

A toughie to break the branches that care

The wisest of all, come the bamboo

Blow from the left, blow from the right yet still on the go

Delighted on the creaking and the rocking of its body

Lived the moment that is hated by his company.

Greatest Love

Dare not test the mother’s love

The confounded treasures of the world, she can grab

She hesitates not picking up the stars for her child

Even try to fight the ferocious beast that is so wild

She can move the tall mountains to protect her son

Knock down the mighty warriors in a blow of a hand

She can dry up the sea to pave the way

To remove obstacles for his smoothen journey

She can conquer the powerful nations to rule as Queen of one

Make her beloved offspring the sole Prince of her land

She can wage multiple wars if anyone tried to harm

Leaving no trace of regret to unveil her unmatched charm

She’s willing to give up her life for his son’s happiness

The unconditional love that no one can replace.

Little Hero

He is an ordinary little man

Unluckily poor, uneducated and no conquered land

Stumbled in the dark aspect of married life

Betrayed and hurt by his beloved wife

Left all alone feeling cold in vain

Forced to bear the cries of five crying children

Tempted to end life, the ultimate escape

Brushed the thought aside, just went back to sleep

Woke up in the morning with a smile of courage

Held the children’s hands as if building a tough bridge

Promised to live on life whatever it brings

There’s hope deep down in the heart that still rings

He’s one of a kind-hearted and loving father

Able to fill in the pillar, that is missing forever.

Just Lost

Tears threatened to fall from heavy eyes

Swallowed hardly to prevent the persistent cries

Locked away in the world of promised happiness

Sooner discovered her life in the dire mess

She posed to continue whatever it takes

The young dream floated like snowflakes

Landed on the land of unworthy man

Trampled and exposed to the fiery sun

Bitterness yield but bears it all

The years that passed had her fall

She lived the breath whatever it has left

Turned her eyes away from the tempted cliff

She learned to control the bile back to its place

Pasted a smile to conceal the trace.

Turtle Friend

Hey, little guy, where are you heading?

Is it to the warm wide sea or to the nice spring?

It could take a day or two with your speed

Endurance and perseverance surely you have indeed

Listen not to others’ destructive mockery

Just walk with willing heart even slowly

Hide under your back when harm attempted you

Stop and smile when they pass and say adieu

Just let them laugh at you for their greatness

Be discouraged not, for you are also blessed

You always reach your goal even to the far end

Many admired your courage, my dear little friend

You’re always get rewarded for the hard earned journey

Be happy, not everybody can be this lucky.

Blue Sky

The birds freely flying up high

Into the arms of the wide blue sky

Cirrus passed by, blown by the wind

Given no chance with his buddies to trigger rain

He paved a way for a beautiful day

Children running around love to play

Your clandestine beauty warmth the cold soul

Give peace and solitude every time we fall

Your undaunted mighty and your splendour

Has opened window to every close door

Your vastness of yonder gives hope to lonely people

Surround the inhabitants of earth so tall

Your endless magnificent colour of blue

A gesture of flickered light to start life anew.
