I love Shakespeare’s Sonnets.
I have a collected edition of them that stays in my handbag and is stuffed with photos and handdrawn pictures and quotes next to the appropriate sonnet.
They’re funny and heartbreaking; dark and light; and truthful to the point where they take your breath away.
In case you can’t tell, I’ve a bit of a thing for Shakespeare.
Over at Quadrapheme, this week’s #PoemoftheWeek is Shakespeare’s Sonnet 73 – a poem that emphasises how fleeting our lives are, and what impact that has on how we love. Perhaps it is because we don’t know how long we will spend on this world, that the connections we have with others are so precious.
