Spread the love

Her azure eyes reflected keen against the gale; though
lustre proved as meek and pale. Lo! buoyant thru the
shades of Spring; heard birds round morning carols
sing.”Oh pleasure now and furore bent; her eyes doth
look and represent. In flowers lone reveal your truth;
whilst hope to sway thus darling youth.”

Beguiled to bone she skipped her meal; while passion
writhe inside and burn. Devoured her dose of Crestor
pills; while guts and stomach boil and churn. Lo! fire
doused her spirit thorough; chimera groped with ire
drew. Impetuous rose to will-o-wisp towards a wraith
that felt but real; with drops of balmy woods and time
came truth which darkening shades conceal.

Among thus waving fields of fern;
Myriad flowers and mortals yearn.

    Oh that is so beautifully dark. Gave me shivers as I reached the “…impetuous rose to will-o-wisp…” line 😀

  2. How I love this, Sanaa! Especially the last stanzas. I can totally see the “flowers and mortals yearn[ning]”. 😀

    You included just perfect dose of spring sorrows and medication chaos.

    Seems cryptic and mysterious, and I love it! Maybe something forbidden luring her in for a tryst among the ferns in the woods? 🙂

  14. I know I keep saying the same thing, but reading your poetry is like slipping back into the 1800’s and reading the classics. I love how you use nature to express so much. The photo is gorgeous, too.
