Aware/……………………By Sami Khalil

A romance poem…

The Poem:


Dancing with vim and vigor,

Long before stars' dim flicker

And the leaves that wither...

Long before the winnowing

Of the wind across soul-scented

Barns and old plowed fields…

Long before our silent questions

Became aware of potentiality

And their scattered companions (answers)…

Conversely, it was “just us”,

Painted in the sheen's of love prompt,

With poignant looks at life and laughter.

Long before roots remember

soil’s drifted fragrances,

Or the five senses of the truest form,

Away from all common places.

Long before wishful thinking,

Merit and demerit,

Even instruments knowing their plectrums;

I read your eyes! I fathomed the silence we spoke constantly!

I loved you!

Awww Sami what a delightfully romantic poem... I could feel as I read the way you saw and appreciated her (and she you). It was a treat to read these lines: "Long before our silent questions
Became aware of potentiality
And their scattered companions (answers)…" I know how this feels or this single line: "Painted in the sheen's of love prompt,"... You have a romantic's heart Sami..

we don't need measuring devices, we don't need answers ....the question gets answered way before any of that...it is that "i love you"---i just know it...i feel it...
the silence contains most answers....we just have to look into ourselves...know ourselves, know what we want, and whom we love.

The pictures have the image similar to the one my mind conjured as I read your poem...poems about love are for me, are the most adored and the subject we like to write about as much as being engaged in. This poem is seductive in everyway.

Beautifully written poem. The innocence of love when its new and full of life. Before it is tainted by the world around us, before life comes and turns it upside down. Well done
