Untitled (gift me a verse)

Spread the love

I stripped away what remained few fragments of fear,
as silence exchanged promise of wooing silvery moon.
Fraught with readiness, I lay down upon sleepy grass,
and observed as sky chased away passing clouds.

I know beneath night’s dark veil there lie deep secrets,
visible to those who dare to defy nothingness of sleep.
I reach and grab a handful of glittering, gloomy stars
laugh as few thoughts escaped to the woods and fields,

‘Gift me a verse so that the universe can heal.’

    Interesting, “I lay down upon sleepy grass,
    and observed as sky chased away passing clouds.” How very descriptive of the enchantment of the moment, looking for purpose

    Your poem is dreamlike, with its ‘promise of wooing silvery moon’ and ‘sleepy grass’, as if everything is suspended, Sanaa. The second stanzas is quite shadowy with ‘night’s dark well’ and its ‘deep secrets’. as well as the gloomy stars’ – and then there’s that wonderful twist at the end – hope in the gift of verse!

    Sanaa, I always marvel at the way your verse integrates so perfectly with the image you have chosen. This is perfectly serene.

    Another lovely piece of writing … stunning, really. ‘Gift me a verse so that the universe can heal.’ is beyond incredible. Truly I wish I’d written that line. It speaks – so eloquently – to my poetic muse. Brilliant!

    This idea of glittering stars being gloomy is so interesting to me……as though they are putting on a front to hide the gloom!
