Untitled (swirling snow and broken heart)

Spread the love

I picture your smile amidst the swirling snow,
one that made the view outside seem less cold
remember days when nothing was impossible,
not even sun glittering from behind grey skies.
Echo of memories replace what had been once,
now that you are gone.

    A sad poem… the echo of all those missed opportunities

    1. Sanaa says:

      Perhaps those opportunities were meant to be missed 🙂 thanks for stopping by, Bjorn ❤️

  3. Another sad poem. The idea of the echo, reminding us of something gone, is so powerful.

    1. Sanaa says:

      Definitely❤️ thanks for stopping by, Jane 🙂

  4. I don’t know which is worse: an echo of memories of a time long gone, or that day when the echo finally fades into silence and no memory at all. Very nice take on this prompt.

      (I agree whole-heartedly with your view)

    one that made the view outside seem less cold’.

    1. Sanaa says:

      Thank you so much, Victoria 🙂 so good to see you ❤️

  13. Great quadrille–but for me it doesn’t resonate with sadness–rather the beloved is gone, perhaps passed on–and your shared memories constitute raw hope, accommodation, leaving speaker & reader with a warm spot under their heavy jacket; smile.

  22. Walter Marks says:

    I know it’s crazy, but the thing I first thought of was the Cheshire Cat from Alice in Wonderland. Him smiling in thin air without his body. Your picture paints the view of the past materializing out of thin air. Beautiful!

    A nice read, Sanaa. Things no longer here were to be recalled, seeming bigger than they were. Amplified by the echos ever present, like ringing in the ear.
