The verse I compose is frequently propelled ordinarily. For instance, one winter I saw that the dead, dried plants of the Morning Glory plants appeared as though little skeletons to me with the seed pods being skulls and the plants being the appendages. That perception later turned into the sonnet underneath:

“Morning Glory Skeletons

Morning Glory skeletons

dangle from the dark patio rails

in the white snow.

Seed unit skulls

what’s more, slender plant bones

stick to the bars

of their colder time of year jail.

The following summer,

they will discover their tones

furthermore, reach again for the sun,

be that as it may, for the present,

their heads hang

what’s more, their plants shudder

in the cold wind.”*

A few of the sonnets in my book, Rainbow Chaser, were motivated commonly. Others were enlivened by home and family, and still others were roused by everyday life.
