Since flower, nor stone, nor depth of the raging sea

Spread the love

Quickly
the blushing leaves in September
murmured amongst each other
as feeling
makes its way into my heart
at grey twilight.
I wish to be the name on parted lips
when world
will slowly fade and sky
comes rushing down
to kiss the earth.

  17. Old Egg says:

    The secret about being that name on parted lips is to say theirs as well holding your last embrace in your mind. I think that should work Sanaa!

  26. Pat says:

    I just really like this piece, this small poem, from start to finish ~ it captures the longing, the yearning, so simply, yet somehow, it comes across as so complex for the (word) capture. (Does that make sense? LOL – let me try again: simple words, for a complex set of emotions – yet somehow, the words you’ve chosen are rich – imbued with something “more” than a first glance/definition -. right. I give up today for comments.) I just really like this Sanaa – well done for a quadrille. πŸ™‚

    1. Sanaa says:

      Aww gosh! ❀️ Thank you so much, Pat 😍 so glad you liked it! ❀️

  27. Bjorn Rudberg says:

      Thank you so much, Bjorn πŸ˜€ so good to see you ❀️

  28. Misky says:

    Oh yes, “the name on parted lips ” — that is lovely.

    1. Sanaa says:

      Thank you so much, Misky πŸ˜€ so glad you liked it ❀️

  29. dorianna ric says:

    oh the soft, warm, sensual feelings your lovely poem incites…absolutely beautiful

    1. Sanaa says:

      Thank you so much, Dorianna πŸ˜€ so good to see you ❀️

  30. Sara McNulty says:

    A longing, lovliness to this poem, Sanaa. I love the sweet soft ending.
