A SONNET IS A POEM?

FAYE ADAMS

 

My brain is forced to work within a zone
when writing sonnets as prescribed to me.
Three syllables taboo, use two, I’m told.
The meter stands as guard to stop the flow
 
and takes away my creativity.
No “ly” words or eye-in-gee to set
the stage, or words like “just” to mar the page.
While one instructor bans all words like “that,”
 
yet one will state that “which” is off the mark.
I want to master writing words that rhyme,
to create sounds which vibrate in one’s ear
 
and touch true hearts with melody of song.
Why must I stick to words with syllables
of two, when iambic itself has three?
