But now in September the winds have changed, and with them my quintessence

Spread the love

Nasturtiums in a jar,
the petals in the water sit almost perfectly still,
when with faded dreams you came to me
and I whisper to you
as one driven by thought of nature’s implicit language
I want to fill the empty parts with comfort,
stretch towards you with my soul singing
as ache, a never-ending spiral, slips through the fingers-
the flowers remind us we can withstand any condition,
incredibly pink as they touch the lips.

    I love the title, Sanaa, and the image of the nasturtiums in a jar, ‘the petals in the water sit almost perfectly still’. My favourite lines:
    ‘I want to fill the empty parts with comfort,
    stretch towards you with my soul singing’.

    Ahh I love the idea of this for sure. And who wouldn’t want to be comforted by you?
    But, nasturtiums are orange? Are they ever pink? If I were you I would pick a different flower for your jar in this one. 🙂
    Or, whatever, poetic license! Haha.
