Take Flight: The Sonnets

Written by Thomas G. Reischel

About the Book

Poetry is both an art and a form of expression. Thomas G. Reischel has created a distinctive poetry collection with over 100 sonnets, blended with photographs that the author himself captured. The collection shows 74 different styles or formats of sonnets which Thomas has identified.

“I hope one can just read the poetry and enjoy it but particularly become emerged in the true beauty of this lovely poetic form,” says Thomas G. Reischel.

A masterpiece that is yet to unfold, Take Flight: The Sonnets perfectly mirrors nature and its grandeur.

Take Flight: The Sonnets


What golden droplets fall from Autumn’s veil
To drape in brilliant color ’cross this trail
For shoes to shuffle slowly through them all
A pleasure that’s unique to only Fall

Behold a sight in play with light,
at riverside bench-seating zone,
where one can sit, ideas ignite
emotions from patterned thoughts made known.

Where gentle breezes blow, and birds do sing,
Content amongst the foliage, so serene.
We dream to come and sit on benches there,
And calmly watch the world go drifting by.

“The poems are really lovely. The beautiful images add to the artistic effect of the poems.”

“I have always loved poetry, and I’ve bought a lot of poetry collections. Take Flight is a great addition to my collection. The poems are written beautifully and artistically. Thomas showed over dozens of sonnet forms that even I never knew existed.”

Digna Frantz, Chambersburg, Illinois

“Thomas Reischel is an artist. Plain and simple. I love the images in every poem. His words inspire and show his love for nature.”
