The remains of a saga unseen

Spread the love

Disemboweled beauty sleeps; a blend of broken
dreams and fateful tears. Preserved upon your
brows a frown; though stars perturbed refuse to
burn. What legends are buried abaft those eyes?
I sense betrayal upon touching your cheek. Oh
death so pale upon your lips; like storm around
thus laboring ships.

Lest sorrow forbids to heed your tale; no mortal
tongue could have pain expressed. I fathom thus
struggle of harrowed escape; the regrets of choice
and lethal mistakes. What men of lore are these?
Who refuse the right to stumble, fall and perish.
I bid your heart not trouble its peace;Β begrudging
thus power of Rome or Greece.

Lo! propelling nature to atone;
Moonlight on her virtue shone.

    Such great empathy pours into this discovered relic, both respectful of the dead and inquiring of the abundant life it left stilled. A resting head without a body sleeps, dreams, remembers, pauses forever. You embrace her and history with great heart. Fine completing couplet.

    Hi Sanaa,
    your reaction to a discovery from ancient Rome or Greece is naive and gentle. Your poem here flows in all the right places. I loved its feeling on my tongue. Very satisfying. thanks for sharing.

    I am truly amazed at the ability you have to arrange words in such a way that we, the readers, can actually β€˜see’ into the ΓΊnseen’…
    Beautiful lines…and the last couplet takes the cake, Sanaa.
