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.

This piece really jars my memory . The depthness of words and how it flows still a mystery to be solve . The picture of the moon is really gorgeous . It rivals the symbol of Eifil Tower in Paris . Perhaps this could be the birthplace of ancient and classic poetry . You words are always captivating .I'm giving this piece a perfect score ..

I REALLY LIKED HOW YOU REFERED TO THE MOON AS A SAILOR. I ALSO LOVED HOW YOU SAID THAT THE MOON OWED ITS LIGHT TO THE SUN. IT GIVES THE POEM A SENSE OF SCIENCE.

I like the dark, mysterious mood that this poem sets, very poetic language, good vocabulary and good flow! I like the first stanza: 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.


Very mysterious and awesome!
