Yours & Mine

Spread the love

Blushful sunrise,
as a lifetime of promises
sway in the wind. 

Oh salt-pickled blossoms
unfurl and float, I smile 
as steeped flavor into tea.  

And I shall be disclosing 
this with a sigh, the way 
your gestures touched me, 
painstakingly honest. 

Love, without you my words 
would wilt and passion
recede from the written page.

    To smiles as steeped flavor in tea, is an interesting turn of phrase sunny.

    Lovely imagery. Salt pickled blossoms is another interesting image.

    Having that right other person makes all the difference in the world, doesnt it.
    especially if they are honest.

    Yes salt pickled blossoms is a wonderful phrase… makes me think of a funeral ritual with petals in the waves.

    1. Sanaa says:

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

  6. No one writes of love the way you do. The first line is a delight to see and feel, and the rest… well, is like going for a swim into someone else’s romance.

  20. Old Egg says:

    When words are your love how wide your world is. It is always a delight to see where your words take us Sanaa as we mustn’t let passion “receide from the written page” must we?

    1. Sanaa says:

      We certainly must not 😀 thanks for stopping by, Robin ❤️

  21. Sanaa you create the most beautiful love poems leaving me sighing at the end longing for more…

    ‘Love, without you my words
    would wilt and passion
    recede from the written page.’

    1. Sanaa says:

      Thank you so much, Donna 😀 so glad you enjoyed it ❤️

  22. Truedessa says:

    There is something about the salt-pickled blossoms. It’s almost raw with emotion. Salt as a healing element and pickled can be sweet or sour or perhaps both and that brings the honest tone into play. This poem was intriguing.

    1. Sanaa says:

      Thank you so much, Truedessa 😀 so good to see you ❤️

  23. Sara McNulty says:

  26. You hit the right note, “without you.” The sound of a bell pealing from the church, somehow lonely.
