Pastiche And Parody

A Poem by Sami Khalil
"

The cycles and seasons...Can you imitate Nature or understand the cycles...

"

Pastiche And Parody/By Sami Khalil

Death and rebirth of nature’s own

Let me herald or cast sublime, new beginnings

When nature is branded in her refined fashion

And no somber faces, sulking, are taken aback

Mourning demises that lie in stillness of shrouds

Lending miracles, lingering in diaphanous passion.

 

Let my refuge be anchored in frilled derangements

Setting scenes of recalls and gnarled mind-escapes

Beseech I to reflect on paths drawn in swirling haze

By interlaced summits and lush, felicitous pastures

Stippled not by man, but hands of a benign action.

 

For, slowly they burst

Into peals of laughter and abundant life

Spring gentle and Summer's insouciance forged

Cicatrices weathered and windblown fast.

 

And, slowly they perish

With rictus grins and megrims of death pleas

Tattermelions of Fall and gelid Winter’s eddies

Pastiche and parody of pert notions past.

Makes perfect sense, Sami!

The mistresses of the seasons, in all their individuality, frolicking through the days and years of our lives; constant but ever changing in their moods and impact on our Earth.

I don't believe we CAN imitate the seasons personally, but internally and psychologically we are susceptible to their wiles and charms. We rejoice in their arrival, and we mourn for their passing while also knowing that they will again return to us.

A marvellous write as always, Sami. Wondrously languaged and expressed on the page. An excellent poem.
