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.

dear Sami... this reminds me of losing my Mother
when I became an orphan. "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". Your poetry blends with
Chapel bells where rest and divinity dwell.
truly... Pat

Dear Poet, as always...Your immense gift for words paints portraits
of exquisite beauty.

this is reminiscent of one daring to try to find love again but
trying to ignore their heart's plea for fear of being hurt again...
sort an ongoing argument between the intuition and
what the heart desires. -- I think lol
either way... I just got simply lost in
the poignant beauty of your words...Thank you for
sharing :)

This piece has me in a state of emotional confusion... wow.... I feel such sweet tender romance yet a painful sadness. It is almost like you are soothing the heart with such hushed beautiful whispers as if to get it to "bloom" again. (sometimes the most beautiful things grow out of hardship, in the most dreadful of places).....Absolutely amazing and "hit" me straight in the heart my friend.
