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!

The whole poem is exquisite, and as always you have an uncommon gift for the language, but the last two lines are my very favorite. As you can probably guess, they truly captured me. Thanks for the read request, Sami.

You truly are a romantic soul Sami...nothing 'sort of' about this one, you knew I'd love the dance... it is love taken wings even before it's brilliance began. I read your eyes, sigh.....

Wasn't sure how enticing 'Even instruments knowing their plectrums' would be in a love letter, but I get the noted connotation there.... ;)

Excellent as always.

Oh Sami...
You made me feel such love in this sweet little thing you call a mere scribble.
I floated with your love over the barn, past the fields and deep into the soil to grab hold of the roots of this beautiful wonderful love. But then you ripped my heart out of the soil with three little words..
"I loved you!" This is a beautiful moment. Why is the love past tense. You should be ashamed, breaking young hearts. (Unless you meant that you loved your muse in the physical sense? In which case I say "Yay" and all is ok.)

Yeee... So extravagantly beautiful!
Silence is one of the most immense things that could draw lovers together; so pure and so comforting! And vim and vividness ignite any love and make it feel new everyday... Enjoyed the read ♥
