Sandman/.........By Sami Khalil
( Playing with words and thoughts on life )

_________________________________________

A muckle of fiddles
Melodies to astraddle
Of all known riddles
Love is the bedraggle.

A muckle of piddles
Histories to un-raddle
Of all time's twiddles( twists and turns )
Present needs a saddle.

A muckle of kiddles
Rivers to row, paddle
Of all the middles
Keep a positive straddle. 

A muckle of sand and dust...

Sand when hardened can create images that speak of the past. Stories told.
Sand when wet/softened can move in mysterious ways. An unpredicatble moving of the ground where time does not stand still. You speak in beautiful riddle my friend. I do love the way you write.

Regards
Troy

"Sandman"
Sami Khalil,
Each stanza told it's own layer, with the sands of life; moving, shifting.
#1 " a muckle of fiddles
melodies to astraddle" Find the violin with the right voice and sing its tune.
In this tune played with practice the end result will be right. Finding love's pure tone takes time, and work.
"Of all known riddles
love is the bedraggle"
I found this poem to be a construct of a fluid moving timeline, as is life. Moving always moving:
"A muckle of piddles
histories to unraddle
of all time's twiddles
history needs a saddle"
These two last lines give a note of instruction to hang in there and not loose hope or give up:
"present needs a saddle" and
"keep a positive straddle"
You showed yourself a happy and upbeat voice in this one! It was a blast to read.
Thanks so much.
Kathy

Reminiscent of Spoonerisms.
My favorite being the seeming good luck ritual inherent in my sister's tongue-tied adage : "If the foo s***s, wear it!"
Very creative and entertaining piece, good poet!

A way different crafting, not sure I got this write fully, the way the love travels, the way the life travels with ups and downs and twists and turns, present needs some sort of support, needs real good paddles to row the boat in the life river, finally man turns to dust and sand after all these events, as it is compared to sand man the phases of life can be changesd as sand has no particular shapes , it changes with the storm and calm, caption it self is deep, different style and unique style, enjoyed
