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!

"Perched"
Sami Khalil,
With each line's conclusion their is an ending to process.
Each line is a life sharing theme which plays itself out .
Candle..burns its tips, ocean idles its ships, Death tightens
it grips and so on.
I found this a thoughtful hard look at this point in time and
an acceptance of what is. Brave poem and brave heart
to see what is true.
Blessings to you.

dear Sami... "Perched" is a two-sided coin. It is also sad that we give at times when it is not the best decision. The lines of your poem are amazing to read. truly, Pat

I love it. Thank you in virtue of all you say and do.
Paint pictures of grandeur with your quills,
Translate your emotions on to bills,
You discover gems on field and Hills,
For untiringly your mind tills.

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."
