A rainy day a women found a wish
She had lost all faith, but could this be him?
A delicate kiss would fulfill her wish
'Cause that animal is not what it seemed.

It had to be the reincarnation
Of her beloved husband killed by the sea
Neighbors said, "it's her imagination,"
But she did not hear, and her eyes couldn't see.

Minutes became hours turning to days.
The longest time, she thought, she had waited.
"I'm finally awake," a tired voice says
The cluttered woman turns with fright. Instead

Of a salty lip, her husband she found
He laid asleep, disguised by the ground.

The author's comments:
This sonnet was inspired by a picture I saw during a class activity in my English class. It was to look at a picture and write a poem about the picture. As soon as I saw the picture of a woman kissing a fish, I connected it to the princess and the frog story. I was able to combine my ideas and imaginative twist with the picture to write sonnet.
