The Other Side Of Twilight

Spread the love

Sun-kissed,
though brittle and dried
I wonder
what stripped them of tangerine hue
softly
the evening takes my name
and sighs
as a thousand epiphanies run through my mind
the world’s substituted “trolling with lust,”
perhaps
sunflowers had a hard time resisting temptation too.

    Exquisite language dear poetess Sanaa

    Much🌻love

    1. Thank you so much, Frank 😀 so glad you liked it ❤️

      (and thank you for the lovely prompt) 🌹

  2. Like climbing a stamen, we aren’t given much until we see color “trolling with lust” and then the gorgeousness of the encounter knocks us down with heavy heated presence. Nicely done.

  3. Your poem reminds me of what all those who troll with lust are missing out on!
    This is on point, and a sumptuous read.

  4. Now that’s a harsh but astute observation of the modern age, substituting trolling with lust. I suppose both do get the blood moving.

  5. Ooh, such a tightly-wound verse, binding this experience and observation with a certain wisdom and insightful acknowledgment. I love it! Your romanticism always shines through in your words in such a beautiful manner.

    Arz kiya hai,
    “Ulti ho gaiin sab tadbirein kuch na dava ne kaam kiya
    Dekha is beemari-e-dil ne akhir kaam tamaam kiya”
    Haha. 🙂

    1. Hahahaha 😀 to that I would say

      “jo nigaah-e-naaz ka bismil nahin
      dil nahin woh dil nahin woh dil nahin.”

      Thank you so much, Anmol 😀 so glad you liked it ❤️

  6. Lovely imageries!
    “softly
    the evening takes my name
    and sighs
    as a thousand epiphanies run through my mind “ Loved these lines the best. ❤️

  7. ‘I wonder 
    what stripped them of tangerine hue,’
    Such subtle and elegant phrasing in this one, Sanaa! 💙
