Untitled (what I am made of)

Spread the love

I am made of dandelion, fire and sunshine
buoyant enough to gift you a smile
I am made of conviction and quiet dreams
strong enough to taper misgivings

I am made of gentle rain and sanguine verse
novel enough to ignite your muse
I take pride in mending broken hearts and souls
search deep into my eyes you ‘ll find it be not false

I am made of prayer, promise and hope
willful enough to sweep dolor and grief
I take pride in spreading warmth and wiping tears
until dusky red dawn/until the moon appears

    No one knows us as well as we know ourselves. You’ve described yourself just as I see you, my dear Sanaa–wonder and loveliness, quiet strength and sunshine that brightens everyone it touches. 🙂

    A good wholesome and innocent and loving and giving soul here, Sanaa. Can’t get much better, your writing likewise. This is a lovely picture also, I assume it is you. Bright, pretty, and shiningey eyes, brown?

    • Sanaa says:

      Ofcourse it’s me Jim!❤️ Ah yes.. light brown eyes 😀 Thank you so much for your warm words ❤️

    This is so you, Sanaa. Beautiful, loving and giving always. And these lines,
    ” I am made of gentle rain and sanguine verse novel enough to ignite your muse” do inspire me as rest of your amazing poetry that goes straight into the heart.💙

    So many strengths in this piece, dear Sanaa – so vigorous and visceral and yet so tight and light – with real musicality and still depth too.. Real love the initial ‘I am made of’ statements too – they work well and are so lovely… A real all round tour de force and my favourite read of the day so far – enjoy the rest of your Sunday…

    • Sanaa says:

      Awww!❤️ Thank you so much, Scott 😀 so glad you liked it!❤️

      You too, have a wonderful day ahead!❤️
