Untitled (a single rose in the pond)

Spread the love

With memories of our beginning                      
kissed by the sun,
I made my way towards a single rose in the pond.
What sweet conjecture that fades
and glows,
seems to align those who can bear
its thorns,
and soon the skies were filled with heron.

I watch as weeping willows embrace the ground,
now as it’s the utmost ebb of the night.
I smile and heave most gentle sigh,
upon gossamer clouds with a searching eye.
Was it impulse?
Or wisdom stringing us along;
I thought as I observed a single rose in the pond.

    impulse or wisdom… stringing us along… or just emotion!

    It is an artist indeed or even a poet that can see the beauty of a discarded rose in a pond. Often we are obsessed with perfection isn’t like that for it brazenly shows the full circle of life. Your poetry always has another level of understanding Sanaa.

    A single rose can trigger off lots of questions only to one who is observant!
