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. Thank you amazing poet for this lovely review. All appreciated...:)................
This poem with it's unique rhyming scheme stands out for it's wry acceptance of an uncaring love. A one-sided love can be both funny and cruel at the same time. The bird art is simply beautiful too. Another exquisite work from you Sami. Indeed enjoyed so much!

oh now come on who could say Sami without a smile? but I must admit, there are some days when everything seems so huge, and others when it is weightless, I guess one takes the good days with the bad, but it is spring! I smell it in the air!

dear Sami... I adore the colorful art
of winged hope. Your poem offers many
sips of life's pleasures and measures of
nature at her bidding. Your talent is
truly tantalizing. As ever... Pat
