Perched/……………..BY Sami Khalil

Perched to fly off into the unknown…A romance poem.

The Poem:

 

The wind stops its whips

The rain halts its drips

The candle burns its tips

The ocean idles its ships

Death tightens its grips

Luck plays its many chips

The joker shares his quips

A lady shows off her hips

The traveler longs for trips

A trace is found on blips

My name perches sadly

on your lethargic lips!

Wow. Might be true. Thank you so much beloved poet for all. ...:))))))
Like it when ladies show off their hips--the world needs more of that.
Despite the jaunty mood of most of this piece, those last two lines do seem just a wee bit sarcastic.
Methinks thou art not entirely pleased with this broad.
"Lethargic lips" puts me in mind of Sylvester Stallone's drawling mouth. (God forbid she looks anything like him; he would make an exceedingly ugly woman.)
Anyway, Sami, I really enjoyed reading "Perched."
