Benison

Spread the love

Here I write
Throw poetical wings to the breeze
Each day that passeth, offer thanks
For buoyant soul, and heart at ease

What strange narrowness of mind
is that ― to believe the things not
known better than which we know.
Let stronger muscle be that of will,
picture barren boughs without the
leaves ― Possess a heart that never
hardens. Go break blue crystals of
the sea. To sensible men, each day
is of reckoning ― blow wishes unto
hollow of trees.

Here I write
Throw poetical wings to the breeze
Each day that passeth, offer thanks
For buoyant soul, and heart at ease

    Those lines really did it for me. A heart that never hardens is a blessing indeed.

    I love the traditional style of language, Sanaa. …..
    “What strange narrowness of mind
    is that ― to believe the things not
    known better than which we know” In my humble opinion, a really good poem.

  3. Old Egg says:

    Hearts are best filled with love but that sadly is not the case in general, probably because profit sways minds away from benevolence. How lucky you are to have a heart at ease…hold on tight to it!

  4. panchali says:

    “Let stronger muscle be that of will,
    picture barren boughs without the
    leaves ― Possess a heart that never
    hardens. “—Oh, words of wisdom penned so eloquently! Fantastic piece….Sanaa!! Love this!

  5. Kim M. Russell says:

    I really like the structure of this poem, Sanaa, it has balance and perspective. I also love the way the language flows and, particularly, the lines:

    ‘picture barren boughs without the
    leaves ― Possess a heart that never
    hardens. Go break blue crystals of
    the sea’

    Much love,
