Le soleil

Spread the love

I sigh and sift my troubled thoughts,
perched upon rock near ocean’s rim.
Cause this path which I curb pledges
both hope and despair.

To weak eye exposed you’re the Sun,
My love, come o’ cast emulsive light.
Now, this path which I curb pledges
both hope and despair.

This life we live is brusque and cruel,
come oust me out from sullied shade.
Oh, this path which I curb pledges
both hope and despair.

Love fear not tumult of raucous wind,
We leap where others refuse to tread.
And, this path which I curb pledges
both hope and despair.

    I am reminded of the Bard here in your words. No specific piece just a sense of him in your meter. I loved this. Hope and despair are fine bedfellows so welcome them both in.

    The repeated line feels the like the protagonist’s subconscious trying to urge the person to be full aware of what it is they are choosing.

    Your phrases are ever so beautiful, and I love how you juxtaposed feelings of sadness with those of light. As said by others, your repeated lines make us cognizant of where your path will take you, as well as give the poem a steady, melodic pace. Thank you for participating in the prompt & sharing.

    The existence of both hope and despair is freeing. One makes the other exponentially more rewarding and soul feeding. The depiction was so effective and calming. Lovely, Sanaa.
