Richer meanings and umber dawns

It’s as complicated as you want it to be. Petals of burnt umber horizon, at ease with the fluidity of time, scatter themselves so as to make city streets seem brighter; how did I not see them before?

I can feel it. Much more, than I could before the first time it seized me, roughly so, by the shoulders. The air is sweet, but mouth? My mouth is dry. It is parched like the land that awaits the promise of life-giving rain. You see, emotions are a form of bio-chemical account that exist in all living things; but too much, can leave one as wild horses in need of a soul whisperer.

Not a bouquet or chocolate tart, I ask for empathy that resides within your heart. It is a moon wrapped in brown paper. It caters to those who need its light. Undoubtedly.

    Maybe the easiest of gifts are the hardest to give… we always crave love but maybe it’s just a little bit of compassion that we really crave

    Sanaa, please write your novel.

    Was nice to see you back…like being struck by lightning can be nice, I think, in the right circumstances. Warming, that’s for sure.

    Seamless use of the line wrapping your own poetry around it in gold gift paper.

  11. rob kistner says:

    Fascinating write Sanaa, most engaging… πŸ™‚

  12. Grace says:

    I love this line: I ask for empathy that resides within your heart.

  13. D. Avery says:

    She is quietly, poetically, giving him an ultimatum. Not that; this.
    So well done.

  14. You see, emotions are a form of bio-chemical account that exist in all living things; but too much, can leave one as wild horses in need of a soul whisperer.
    This is a great poetic prosery, Sanaa.

  15. Selma says:

    Fascinating. Always. Thanks 🌹 πŸ’—

  16. I have been that horse, in your poem, in need of a soul whisperer. This was a walk down memory lane for me. Before I knew I was a writer, I didnt write. Emotions, of course, would overflow and darkness would spread inside. Really nice piece Sanaa

  17. *appreciative finger snapping*

  18. Kerfe says:

    I had not thought to relate the moon to empathy, but it’s a good match.

  19. Linda Lee Lyberg says:

    So lovely Sanaa.

  20. Punam says:

    Such a beautiful poetic prose, Sanaa! ❀️
