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

  1. Possess a heart that never
    hardens. Go break blue crystals of
    the sea.

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

  2. 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. 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. “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. 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,
