Casa

A Poem by Sami Khalil
"

The house of our past memories. The house of upbringing or love...

"
 
 
 

Casa/(House in Italian)………………………………By Sami Khalil

A sad romance poem. Going back to the house of your fading memories…

Note: Sorry for the hard work you have to do for some. Look some up you will appreciate the poem.

House of our birth and memories of upbringing stands as a patriot guarding our memories after we have outgrown it and left it decaying but we love to go back to it. Or it could be the house of marriage and love before the death of one’s love. Or the summer house of visits and vacations.

The Poem:

 

The blanched house stands… abandoned

Dappled home to Assumption silhouettes

Noctuary patriot to scabrous perfervidity

Piteously decaying; amongst lover’s bets.

 

Randomly dehiscing those lost pareidolias

Solemn hauteurs of crapulent, gaping visions

Upon doom, gloom rises from ingravescent pits

Surmounting belfries of their echoed collisions.

 

Where bells strike in their muted redundancy

While scornful opprobrium’s pelt at us away

Anamneses raise high to lofty aquiline summits

Through serrated edges, morning lights sway.

Not much criticism here my friend. I can read both the Christian and Platonic use of Anamnesis in the poem. I absolutely love the last line.

I'll be honest this poem was so sophisticated I had to Google a word or two. I could feel the wall speak through your words, inviting with the visions of love and growth.. yet in a different light the rooms housed memories of a pain far too fresh. I could imagine a fence around this beautiful property, depending on the time I could imagine myself on either side of it. Beautiful, brilliant write Sami Khalil

Our environment, indeed, the roof above our heads is so important to our sense of well-being. That first picture was heartbreaking to me.

An empty house shudders and echoes loneliness. It's not the lack of furniture or warmth. its the near death of something once alive, one full of love and happiness. Its walls are cold to touch, it weeps - i know.. bought a place like that a few years ago, and over three years with wonderful help, took it to life again. There are hints of that in your poem.
