Duologue

Spread the love

Scent of freshly brewed ristretto and
pear butter, pour memories out unto
readying eve. I smile as conversation
flows, as though a passionate stream.

You’re poetry dark, that enchants ―
delights the muse as melting waves.
You’re song and silence that swirls,
as though petals unto written page.

I eyed rough sketches sprawled on
bed, as night spreads out its wings.
Moonlight shines through window; 
as I recall her words upon journey’s 
end.

    May I change from coffee to a herbal tea, please? Given my severe allergy, to caffeine. I love your usage of metaphors, throughout this poetic tribute to Magaly. The highest form that one can be honoured, by another.

  30. Old Egg says:

    We each write diferently and when reading others work we are envious of the way they do. Our own words too are disinctive and belong to us just as much as the way we talk and dress. Then as you say that words are memorable such as a touch or a kiss. (Especially Magaly’s).

    1. Sanaa says:

      Thank you so much, Robin 🙂 so glad you liked it ❤️

    The imagery here is just wonderful. You start with very solid real description of food and drink and then go dancing into really vivid ways to describe intangible things. What a nice tribute to Magaly!
