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.

Wonderful write, has a romantic feel, lots of imagery with a sense as if a sonata were being made for someone. The last two lines felt unfinished, left it hanging, but it's just my point of view, still a wonderful write.

Beautiful writing of the gorgeous moon. I happen to be a sucker for any poem about my prince in the night sky. I love how in the beginning of this poem you refer to how the moon owes it's radiance to that of the sun and her magnificent rays. I have always loved the dance between the moon and sun and their unique relationship. Just a gorgeous piece my friend. It is wonderful to be reading you again. :)

"Speaking of…
Those who are cleaved between the heart and the moon."

The poem spoke to me of the beauty of the inky sky, of the brilliant stars that lovers everywhere gaze at, of love.

The moon is a great symbol of romance and you used it beautifully in this stunning poem.
