Kasa of infinite longing

Spread the love

Meet me halfway; come tell me,
though lost soon as wind whispers,

I’ve seen you for who you are,
and now nothing else comes close.

Deeper than anything else,
come write poems with your lips,

I’m a rose under night sky,
come, show me, love just happens.

  10. first of all, this is beautiful, what can i say, i’m at a loss of words, loved hear you read this, thats where real poetry lives, spoken out loud. second, read your prompt on dverse, very well written, very well researched and presented i wrote sijo years ago, and studied other asian forms (the chinese “book of songs” was one of my favorites) this form is beautiful, i will have read more. and third, i just discovered soundcloud and i’m recording a bunch of my poems, and my question is this, how did you post the player with your poem to your blog post? i can’t seem to be able to figure it out, any help/advise would be great! and thanks in advance
