A lemon for your troubles

I’m on a poetry kick, mainly writing it, but reading enough to stay informed.

To push it from a whim to a habit, I’ve set a goal of writing 150 poems by August 31. Sonnets, limericks, non-rhymes, haikus ā€” anything.

Here’s the translation of Pablo Neruda’s “Sonnet I,” the first stanza, to inspire you as well:

Matilde, name of a plant or stone or wine,
of what is born of earth and lasts,
word, which in growing, dawns,
in whose summer the light of the lemon bursts.
