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!

It has a sense of innocence morphing into maturity as the poem goes along...I like the balance between nature and one-to-one intimacy...I love : Long before our silent questions / Became aware of potentiality...that's where it kind of went from innocent to mature for me...nice work Sami :)

Thank you kindly...:)........
It is a good thing to "read" another and to be read in return. It is as blissful to be understood as it is the fire of hell to be misunderstood... I wonder how often we think we are aware when we are in our own reality and not experience the true reality of the other?
Here I feel you are in time and on key with your lover and with the reader.
I enjoyed the read Sami.
