Before You

Spread the love

Hesitation
measures the depth of one’s
fear giving just enough time
before the words slip out of
mind. 

I watch
as breeze turns into a blow,
as breath becomes ripples
and falls in soft undulating
folds-  

I cherish the moment
when I first laid eyes on you,
cause that’s when my heart
leapt and sang.

I chose the letter ‘H’ and the word hesitation came to mind.

  9. I got caught up in the first stanza – a brilliant way to describe hesitation, Sanaa! And then I had to hesitate again with the second stanza – I love how you cleverly slowed everything down with:
    ‘…breeze turns into a blow,
    as breath becomes ripples’.
