Pastiche And Parody

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

Tatterdemalion of Fall and gelid Winter’s eddies

Pastiche and parody of pert notions past.

please forgive me for my delayed visit/comment upon this magnificent splendour of art. I'm too spellbound after immersering myself into your pen' s ink drops!

I can't help but be reminded of J. Keats ,
Your exquisite use of luscious vocabulary, wrought succinctly forth incorporating the mystique of nature's cycles...oh how one can get lost in the poetic beauty you spill &
never want to be found again!

Thank you so much for sharing your
poetic gifts With us all! ~ :)))))))))

Life goes on, nature walks through the seasons, all in the circle of life both men and his surrounding, it is both amazing and same time too real and parallel, great observation of life and nature is portrayed vividly.

So in nature , so in man , the seasons in their glory then they fade heat and cold life and death. Beautifully told as usual.
