This year, I've decided to challenge my writing skills by creating a weekly short story based on suggestions from my readers posted here or on Facebook. Suggest any three of a character, location, object, or genre, and I will craft a story.
Last night, I had the fortune of seeing Sutton Lee Seymour perform at the Albatross in Astoria. It was a wonderful experience and, with Sutton being a theatre queen, I decided to write a Shakespearean sonnet about it. I hope you enjoy it.
Heralded her great entrance on the stage.
Applause and cheers abounded with delight
As audience flew into joyful rage.
When microphones refused to amplify,
With steady pace, her lyric, Siren's voice,
Amidst the patter, ever she would sigh,
And use her wit to make another choice.
She raised her volume high against the crowd,
Inspiring them to keep their humor strong.
The roar supportive growing ever loud,
The polished queen launched forth another song.
For o'er two hours, she reigned down supreme,
And even tech could never spoil the dream.
