THE MENDING FLOWERS

THE MENDING FLOWERS

A Poem by Latifa
"

rough times are very hard to swallow.

"


The owl howls high above,
swirling sorrows straps the soul:
fly no more like a dove
the blessed beats of heart beat to lull.

fingers fumble through the fog of salvation,
muted mouths learn to mimic
pleading prayers of supplication,
 while the daunting demons allude to dreaded gimmicks.

cry crystal tears
cry cold calls of fears
time teases the restlessness,
steering seconds into sluggish carelessness.

gallop the grinds to gasp the ease
sail your sadness over seas
wallop,wallop the jeering hours
plow the plants of the mending  flowers.

thank you Ssadd
Beautiful poem. The alliteration works great in this text. My favourite lines are: wallop,wallop the jeering hours /plow the plants of the mending flowers. It's music in my ears. Very well done.
