Untitled (when a heart needs to bloom)

Spread the love

Breathe. Plant your heart seeds in fertile soil,
and let them bloom ‘neath the afternoon sun.
The earth like a human heart is fragile, let us
tend to its growing needs and chaste desires.

I, see you as you plough hope within my soul,
how you savor scent of cassias and roses blue.
We don’t always know what’s brewing within,
come let us trim weeds like one would scatter
gloom.

Because the soil of self requires constant care,
come let us dig out worries of prolonged past,
observe as soul turns on a new leaf, its beauty
transcend a moonlit field.

‘The hum of failure should not depress you.’

    I like the idea of trimming weeds like one would scatter gloom. I also agree with the last line. It is not always easy to apply it, but it is worth trying.

    Ah, a very uplifting piece Sanaa. Beautifully penned. I especially love these:

    “come let us dig out worries of prolonged past,
    observe as soul turns on a new leaf, its beauty
    transcend a moonlit field”

    How beautiful your words were Sanaa. There is so much to see and wonder at in nature and to be able to be a part of that in one’s own garden is such a pleasure.

    I love, ‘plough hope within my soul’. A garden implement in keeping with soil, seeds, and growth. Beautiful, Sanaa!
