The sorbet-souffle clay of dusk entails
a full realization,
as ethereal as it is, like scent of rose
or musk— I am convinced, the universe
is out to tell me things,
silhouetted against the sun, my heart
reaches a conclusion.
Aren’t they too a witness of beauty,
haven’t they stirred countless
times in bosom, gypsy wildflowers
of pastel blush and white;
drawing examples of freedom and wild
one learns only after tasting the edge.
Looking up at the sky, I now understand
why people fall so deeply;
why spring’s bouquet holds no allure
without a little ache,
orange-gold hues melting in water
as the world catches on;
love means never having to say you are sorry.

What a sublime title for a deliciously romantic poem, Sanaa! The opening line sets the tone and I love the use of the senses, especially in ‘scent of rose or musk’; ‘gypsy wildflowers of pastel blush and white’; and ‘spring’s bouquet holds no allure without a little ache’. I like the way you have incorporated the line from the film ‘Love Story’.
