Untitled (of courage and first words)

Spread the love

I remember the sky back then
as sun grew generous
pouring out rays of gold
and I would murmur
lost deep in thought
I knew not where the words
came from

Perhaps an image
leaped into the back of mind
pleading please be bold
what’s hidden, declare
weigh (not) down your heart

I remember the sky back then
as I ponder upon this moment
so strange was its allure
so strong was heart’s desire
and I could smile
a thousand years
knowing how the words
had come.

    Lovely imagery here Sanaa as you remember perhaps putting pen to paper for the first time ( or finger to keyboard?)

    1. Sanaa says:

      Thank you so much, Paul 😀 so glad you liked it ❤️

      (It was pen to paper.. and later finger to keyboard)

    How important it is to ponder to your muse as she can be so fickle. I sometimes look back at older poems and think did I really write that?, and feel so pleased I did. I loved your expression “I could smile a thousand years”.

  3. Beautifully written, Sanaa. I like the way you look back, remembering first the sky and the generous sun, the wonder at not knowing where the words came from.

    A lovely poem. The way you write about the first time you wrote a poem was as lyrical as if you had written about the first time you made love.

    I could smile
    a thousand years
    knowing how the words
