    Here’s my 14 word sonnet.

    I
    quake.
    I
    take.

    You
    weep,
    to
    sleep.

    They
    ask,
    pray,
    mask.

    We
    need.

      my 19 word sonnet –
      St. Valentine’s.

      Wonderous
      love –
      thunderous
      above
      chasing
      me,
      facing
      thee.
      Alone
      today.
      Thrown
      Bouquet!
      Hello,
      Beau!
