Untitled (looking for a reason)

Spread the love

With every changing season,
                   I am looking for a reason 

And I have recalled every day and night
Your fiery gaze and most winsome smile
Can’t decipher what satiates the soul
or what addresses the mind, every time
these ruby lips utter your name (devise)

You’re both consciousness and dream 
A Poet’s vignette in the eyes that gleam
Can’t begin to describe (ballad or art)
the ceaseless breath, the pounding heart
every time you’re near or miles apart

With every changing season,
                   I am looking for a reason

    I love the way the circularity of the poem reinforces the ideas of changing seasons and looking for a reason, Sanaa. I also love the pace and rhyme, as if walking along and pondering.

    Often looking for a reason will divert your mind from your true feelings, so it’s best to follow your instinct then worry about what you did later. P.S. Do not necessarily follow my advice!

    “You’re both consciousness and dream”…and…”the pounding heart
    every time you’re near or miles apart”

    You collapse all separation and distance, no matter what the season. You describe feelings that exist instantaneously and then forever. Perhaps you are writing about things that are reasons in and of themselves. Very well developed idea.
