Sillage....

Sillage....

'Twas on one lonely night,
with pearl-white haze,
I stroked the paper
in weariest daze;

my heart still drooped 
with the weight of it all,
whilst my fingers bled tears
in un-writ scrawl.

'Would my future soon
blur and fade,' as I feared?
Outside the window,
blinding light appeared.

There, in a trance, I watched ...
no breath to spare;
'twere fireflies, bright,  
flickering through the air.

'Awaken, O dreamer!'
the moon then sung;
the scent of perfume
lingered 'pon my tongue....

Such a silky smooth write, following rules re. form and all, but full of colour and meaning. Lovely, Yumna, and yet again, proof of your skill as a poet-witer. Reading a second time, this piece really moves me, it has an ethereal air to it.. suits you perhaps, more than.. ..

My-my-MY!
Is there anything you can't do!
Yumna,
This is as wonderfully brilliant as it gets … your syntax, flow, and metaphorical imagery make for a truly masterful piece of poetic excellence any poet of note would be proud to claim as their own, including Me.
The presentation alone is poetry to the mind's-eye, but the sweet sillage of beauty and emotion of your skillful writing lingers-on in the tasteful bouquet of its enthralling appeal.

My deepest bow to thee! ⁓ Richard : )

Always, it's a true pleasure, Yumna. : )
Wonderful poem. Not familiar with the format, but the use of archaic language could make it fit in to any time in the last two hundred years. Great job.

perfume upon the tongue, but no words upon the page...
another lonely night turns to a lonely morning...frustration of not being able to share the hours with the muse.
