Luna………………By Sami Khalil

Speaking of romance…

The Poem:


Speaking of…

That silent sailor

Sailing upon dark notes

Owing its debt to the sun

Beaming in complexions of castaways

Slitting darkness till the last border lines

When the serene wheels of dawn prayers turn.

 

Speaking of…

The only progeny

To the first virgin mother

Land of eventual wanderings

Fusing waves of textured people

To colors of clay and clod belongings

Where anthems translate patois of flooded stragglers.

 

Speaking of…

This petticoat companion

That night ferry in the inky sky

Languishing in cardered memories

Of travelers clad in restive seasons

Under the silvery shafts of starry lights

Where the ticking clock on the horizon kindles images.

 

Speaking of…

Those who are cleaved between the heart and the moon.

This is exquisite. The gentleness of tone and the way the words flow have a timeless, classic feel. This could have been written two hundred years ago by one of the great English Romantics. The last full stanza in particular is absolutely stand out in my opinion.

Beccy.

i think i am stuck between my heart and the moon...as i search another heart for light, when darkness wanders in...i am a traveler...and this poem set off the rocket in me that wanted to talk to that man in the big light in the sky.
i like the analogy of the sky to an ocean, and we are captains of ships sailing to that lunar surface...looking for a land that might produce love.
