    Oooo, wow, I could HEAR this poem with the picture! Really excellent, Greg! And I LOVE the amazing sound of “dewy spring vapors” 🙂

    • I really liked playing with words on this one! I tried to find a word other than ‘spring’ to describe ..’spring’…but came up empty! I liked the idea of ‘mist sonnets’ because it really reminds me of sailors who might not hear a foghorn ….. ‘missed sonnets’ are really unheard foghorns ‘trumpeting safety’ … ‘breezing by’ on the vapours. Just all kinds of wordplay for me in this one!

    So deep and rich in meaning and metaphor.
