A Poet’s Love

Spread the love

In the cavern of my heart, you flow
like a river deep; calling only when
all around is silent.

You’re faint hope, perhaps a flower
or impassioned dream. Let me past
jagged thorns, while world outside
is bound by sleep.

Whispers of love, rekindled flow, as
though gardens that revel in spring.
You’re verse that blooms among my
thoughts, surging through as pulse-
like waves.

Like a prayer sealed upon sweet lips,
you’re moon and sun both wreathed
in one. Perhaps a hymn, as though a
sacred song.

In the cavern of my heart, you flow
like a river deep; calling only when
all around is silent.

    The longing in this is wonderful… also love how you paint this in contrast… love is so complicated.. like sun and moon together…

    That would have been enough for me. It stands all by itself. It could be a song to self. So beautiful. The additional stanzas flow out from this source as would river and find their way home again.

    Thank You for this beautiful take on the prompt Sanaa.

    1. Sanaa says:

      Aww!❀️ Thank you so much, Paul πŸ˜€ so glad you liked it!❀️

    I liked the sound of this: “You’re moon and sun both wreathed

    Sanaa, this is delightful. It has an almost mythic feel to it. I am reminded of bards of old dancing with their muses and compelled to spill their joy onto a page.

  32. HA says:

    Such a lovely and heart warming verse. I loved the refrain. The accompaniment with the sound of the waters cascading down is well thought. There’s a certain melancholic touch to it which makes reading it such a bittersweet experience. πŸ™‚
