A Poem by Sanober


be soft 

when you come

like the touch of a golden moon
fluttering in a delicious

come like the glimmer
of distant ships...dotting the horizon
with star-kisses

come like the first sip
of a mountain-scented tea
on lonely
autumn evenings 

come like a blanket
tenderly touching
my fevered brow

be beautiful 

like memories
and mist
rising off a forest river 

like poems blooming
in fields of silence

come and drench me
in a moment of
a deep breath
a deep love...

and fill my heart
the way birdsong fills
the trees at dawn.

Heavy sigh! How did I miss this one? Gloriously romantic words. The similes are positively divine in this one. To be drenching in longing....to hear its melody in the trees...to feel its mist on your skin. OH MY! You touch on every sense here and do so tenderly. Wonderful work, Sanober. Lydi**

dear Sanober... I think I shall never read a
poem as lovely and gentle as thine.
"The touch of a golden moon..."
the feeling of an autumn rain breeze...
You were born to heal and bless our
hearts in poetic reverie. truly, Pat

You were quite a sensation when you came upon The Starlite Cafe...and I am so proud and so delighted to see you here!

THIS is what poetry is all about, and no one does it better!

Much love, Sanober!

I like the thought of the longings being soft and beautiful .... they should be. The imagery here is very pretty and especially love "...come like the glimmer of distant ships...dotting the horizon with star-kisses". A most enjoyable read. ~Jim
