Undoubtedly You

Spread the love

I often wonder if there’s anything more left to express. If the sighs emanating from my chest are validation enough. Β Decades to decades, mankind continues to make the same mistakes; strewing salt on the ebony night sky when in truth it is the sun that’s all deserving: of mindfulness, of ardor, of all things constant.

Like hydrangea on a wedgewood plate I offer love; I knew, from the moment I set eyes upon that you are mine. I want you, of course! How could I not? One cannot help but glow knowing someone, somewhere smiles tenderly. February has commenced with the wisdom of rolling clouds, a thousand greys from deep to pale. The kind of preamble where a kiss could linger.

I went out to the hazel wood because a fire was in my head, approached it like topiary and clipped it into art.

  1. ‘One cannot help but glow knowing someone, somewhere smiles tenderly.’ How resonant these lines are to me! And the ending is just perfect, because that is exactly what you did with the prompt.

  2. I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, you are the QUEEN of romance! Beautiful. I just sighed at the end. These words
    “Like hydrangea on a wedgewood plate I offer love;” so beautifully descriptive…so delicate and fragile….and then “a thousand greys from deep to pale” what amazing description. Just beautiful Sanaa!

  3. This is so filled with longing… so I can understand that sometimes you just have to get out and transform what you have into art.

  4. You are the first to end with the prompt lines, Sanaa, and I love the thought of approaching the hazel wood like a topiary and clipping it into art! I also love the image of β€˜strewing salt on the ebony night sky’, and the romance of this piece.

    1. Thank you so much, my dearest Kim πŸ˜€ so glad you enjoyed it πŸ’„β€οΈ

      (and thank you for the glorious prompt) 🌹

  5. “February has commenced with the wisdom of rolling clouds, a thousand greys from deep to pale.” I can so identify with this, but I see also in your tale a promise of creativity that won’t be crushed but, like love, waits for its fruition.

  6. I will echo Lillian and name you queen of romance, you do it so very well! This line is heartfelt full of longing “One cannot help but glow knowing someone, somewhere smiles tenderly.”

    The way you used the line in the ending is marvelous, I can only hope my opening with it is as good.
