Untitled (from dreams and beyond)

Spread the love

and just like that I was swept away
      as sugar maple whispers to the lake
   pointing to a piercing gaze
                               and most wanton sigh

I fleet fast and perish like the ebbing sun
         holding dear emotions of the past
                  ‘what is life but a pleasant dream’
death winked and squeezed
                                           my fingertips

Pray once
             pledge twice adamant lips
  ‘as enamoured soul at ease with love’
                 and though I may or not respond
           look to the stars
                                         and far beyond.

  1. This is so beautiful, Sunny. My word, you have certainly made giant strides with your writing. I am still shaking my head in admiration for your collaborative poem at Toads.

    1. Awww!❤❤ Thank you soo much, Shay 😊 so glad you liked it!❤❤

      (and thank you for the lovely prompt)

  2. This is a beautiful capture of that fleeting moment of death.. I like the way you have imagined it, especially:
    death winked and squeezed
    my fingertips

  3. Passage of time so wonderfully captivated in the image ‘ebbing sun”. I am also enamoured of the ‘death winked….’ line. A fab write Sanaa 🙂

  4. Ah, I wonder sometimes if we will wake up from our ‘pleasant dream’ that is life and find that we are indeed somewhere else entirely…….perhaps indeed our dreaming state will lead, alas, to heaven.

  5. My comment disappeared because I didn’t notice the 15+9 prompt! I said wonderful things about this poem and especially the last verse which may be the best you have ever written. How wonderful that you have many years ahead of you! How wonderful that we can find you in your poems.

    1. Awww!❤️ Thank you so much, Susan 🙂 so glad you liked it!❤️
