A Poem by Sami Khalil
"

A romance poem...A sort of a love letter...

"





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!

What a beautiful romantic spirit you have my friend.. Your words always captivate my soul and magically transport me into a world of beauty and wonder. You never disappoint with your ability to touch my heart in the most tender, charming way. You enchant me with your musical words whispered sweetly and your brilliant imagery tickling my senses. This speaks to me of that moment before... The moment you look into your lovers eyes and the world fades away.. Everything you thought you knew before is gone.. replaced by the "knowing"... The sense that...they are THE one.. The connection is there and grabs ahold of your heart and just "clicks".... It is so powerful that you are consumed with them.. No words are needed... The love is there, fluttering like angel's wings through your soul carrying you away in its epiphany.. You are just "AWARE" of them... all of your senses sharpened on them... Their scent, their sound, their touch, their taste, and what you see in their eyes reflected back at you... The other half of your soul smiling, basking in the glory of a love so warm, so pure, so intoxicating... As always, Sami--I love this.. You know I am such a fan.. You have made my heart sigh with such profound contentment.. :)

Romantic and well done, it has a tone of desperate longing to it. One thing, in the middle, there is a shift in font, pretty sure it was unintentional.

It's the line "painted in the sheens of love"

You too talented poet...:).....
I loooove the way this builds up to a simple and beautiful conclusion. Also, I really appreciated the mixture of simple and complex ideas.
(Simple: "the leaves that wither.."
complex:
"..our silent questions
Became aware of potentiality
And their scattered companions.")
A truly beautifully written work of art :)

Your final conclusory lines are stunningly written. “I fathomed the silence we spoke constantly!” Intriguing phrase. But then again as I read the poem I arrive at the realization, whilst perusing line after line that each one could not have been more ideally written. “Long before our silent questions became aware of potentiality”. Nicely said and elegantly personified. Your poem’s full of powerful, appealing imagery. One of the best romance poems I’ve seen in a while. Thanks for the share.
