Bereft: Then pen on... Note: The first line is part of a line I left Johanna on one of her poems and she liked it a lot. It gave me the inspiration to write this one...

Bereft/………………By Sami Khalil

Bereft: Pen on…

The Poem:

 

Bereft…Then pen on till the next storms of life

Heralding wind, rain, hail, sand upon terrains

Pen till ink spills out with blood, become lovers

Across somber passages, brushstroke of pains.

 

From there, earth rises to meet heavenly lights

Betwixt the lands of tremor, seas of tranquility

As soul’s canvases spell out answers to quandaries

Poet’s texts answer genesis of addled humanity.

 

Pen on till starry dust fills emptiness of dark rooms

Tracing queued walls of the heart… edgeless spaces

Embrace aching words carrying rippling worlds within

For when all crumbles, hearts compose new places.

Hard to believe I stumbled on this gem that seems to echo so many of my feelings lately. Only my pen seems to have stopped working. Valentine

Yes--when bereft--we must pen on; as poets, we have little choice.
We will write our way into gentler, lovelier and more promising states-of-mind.
Beautifully composed wisdom, Sami!

Deeply moving with so much feeling and emotions. When someone hangs by the thread. When we're caught by this perfect storm . Should we succumb and fold ? Or just like the pen who still bleed and pen on. The ever needing desire to play the hand that we have been dealt with in life.

" For when all crumbles, hearts compose new places. " You nailed it with this line !

What a beautiful stanza, and poem in itself... Writing a new world for when the deep sadness threatens...creating a wonderful escape...I absolutely adore this, brilliant!

You use amazing imagery to attempt to capture the profound moments in life, the ones that can't quite be put into words, but yet you manage to bring them to life.
