A Poem by Sanober

My words lie wingless today
scattered about the house

no clouds envelope them today

not even the ones 
bursting with a long summer evening’s

that i swore were the most beautiful
i’d ever seen 

even the rain-sparkled breeze
at dawn
fail to stir them

their emptiness
stretches forever
like things said 
but never done

no memories carry them 
in swirls of fragrant smoke

no touches, no blushes warm
them like lotus blossoms 
in the sun

they lie heavy 
on the floor
without song
without substance

and dust...
and despondency

and then,
i feel You 
entering my mind

like a breath
of golden beams

cascading relentlessly..
through me

my heart 

and words take off
like a thousand flamingos.

dear Sanober, you have graced our hearts with
your amazing poem of hope and tranquility.
"Like a breath of golden beams... releasing my
heart... and words take off like a thousand
flamingos". Your poetry touches me like
the mango hue of a sunrise. truly lovely
to welcome your return... Pat

The inspiration of that special someone in your life can make words come to life. It can make a dark day bright. Love the simile of "words take off like a thousand flamingos." What a stunning sight that would be...and your words DO take off, my friend. The alliteration in "dusk and dust...and despondency" is superb. The entire poem is's been too long since I've read your words. Great! Lydi**
