The Black Brook (Sargent), Sonnet #278


















No one knows where the brook begins.
The mountain is granite and gneiss,
Agate and quartz, covered in moss.
What does she think about? What sins
Or fears? The brook and melting ice?
Perhaps she sees there constant loss.
The drier stones are not as black,
Though her shadowed silk is darker.
No taint of evil could mark her,
At least before she must go back.
She listens to the black brook's song
Until it's all that she can think,
Until there is no right or wrong.
She tosses stones that cannot sink.

Hello, I am David Alan Binder

I love interviewing authors; if you are an author of a published book, then drop me a line and let’s talk.

My website is located at the following place; since it is a Google site it is completely NOT malicious. I choose them for that reason.

I look forward to hearing from you.

Here is a sample author interview I recently posted to my website:

My blog features articles to help writers and interviews of authors, plus I have a tab of poetry (don't we all, LOL), and some T-shirts ideas text that combined with someone’s graphic could be awesome.

Let's talk.
