Unbarred

Spread the love

She stares out a window absorbed in swirl of thoughts.
Perhaps, we are a pretty mess, covered in fingerprints
of time. Faith is but state of openness and trust which 
once lost is swiped away like ashes and dust.

The ache of emotions served as a memory of numbness
and betrayal. The past swims in the air and grows like a
garland in a garden. She watched, as bowl of barley and
honey dissolves as heavenly wine. Lo! silence sought to
whisper; “However love’s a feeling of togetherness that
is braided with the openness in our hearts.”

Lo! kneading faith beneath the sun;
With cherished thoughts life begun.

    Perhaps it’s just faith that returns to life here after betrayal and grime, but I get a feeling in the poem that as she recovers (and cleans) life opens in more ways than one. Very fine.

    “A pretty mess covered with fingerprints” What a great parallel between the window and ourselves. How well the illustration captured the hope the girl has in her eyes that she would find love soon.

    i love how you have taken us into this painting and brought this woman alive..particularly love her swiping away the ashes and dust – it feels quite symbolic

    Beautiful writing, Sanaa, as usual. 🙂
    Life stems from faith and whatever we visualize in the subconscious it becomes a reality.
    ” love her swiping away the ashes and dust – ” we read about such instances all the while.. yet its rare when one comes face-to-face with a victim! 🙁
    Lovely poem…
