Write a sonnet in imitation of the English (Shakespearean) sonnet or the Italian (Petrarchan) sonnet. Be careful to observe the meter and the rhyme scheme. It need not be a good poem, but it should at least be technically correct. The subject matter needs to be about summer in “New Mexico” (or summer where you are at the moment)–going to an Isotopes game, hiking in the Sandias, pulling weeds in your vegetable garden, hanging out at a weekend farmer’s market, eating dinner on the patio at El Pinto, anything as long as the subject is summer in New Mexico.
