Ashen...By Sami Khalil

Healing the bruising...

The Poem:


I planted you,

In the legacy of bruised skies,

In the further callings of noted flowers as colors escape orphanages

And yield to the roots of spring conscience.

I planted you,

Naked with bed full apologies,

Of ceaseless moons with pity on prisoners, who survive daily devotions, wearing the shadows of absence.

I planted you,

In the rebirth of wilted petals,

Who survive in distant valleys, attached to indecision of the hearts,

Footsteps away from light in the broad fields of death.  

I planted you,

In my intimate words of wedded vocabulary,

Around soft edges of intuitions where our critics below are confused,

Spinning in a state of head spin.

I planted you,

In the misreading of ashen rituals,

As white temples, churches and mosques stand as living archives to almost divinity, in unison of a lost sermon.

Such lovely imagery here. I particularly like the line, "In the further callings of noted flowers as colors escape orphanages". The whole piece just flows and brings the reader to a place of accepted moving on. The pain is felt but there is hope. Nicely done!

Planted with a bed full of apologies? I think most would prefer that than a small bouquet, if the apologys are in earnest. Thought provoking write. Valentine
