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.

Beautiful artwork and story. The moon/Luna had been tale and story for many. Gave us direction and we fell in love by the light of her on the dark nights. Thank you my friend for sharing the outstanding poetry.

One can interpret Moon in many ways. For istance, in India kids call moon "Chanda Mama" means Maternal Uncle Moon and obviously the relationship changes as they grow. You, in this poem, have described anything moon can symbolise or mean to someone. Another masterpiece.

Brings to mind a stunning, unearthly pronouncement recited by a very much revered ancient Speaker.
"Luna" is big and bright, Sami--the harvest moon of poems.
Happy 2015!
