Invisible Threads

A Poem by MsJewel
"

~ a romantic poem written in zejel form ~

"


Art ~ Arthur Braginsky



~~~

My love is his, his love is mine

two hearts that beat and intertwine

in a love found to be divine

 

Invisible the binds that tie

our hearts as one, and yet I fly

carefree and light, as in the sky

tethered to him but not confined

 

Like butterflies are to a rose

the nectar’s sweet, and I suppose

a tiny taste and my heart knows

my lips have sipped the finest wine

 

So warming is this sweet embrace

as if the sun has left a trace

of sunbeams tied and softly laced

around our hearts, as they align

 

Through misty dawns and moonlit nights

together we have found delight

threaded as one, gently, yet tight

My love is his, his love is mine

~~~

Author's Note

MsJewel
The Zejel: The first stanza, known as the mudanza, has three lines, rhyming aaa. All the other stanzas - as many of them as you like - have 4 lines, rhyming bbba, the a rhyme harking back to the first stanza. So the overall rhyming scheme for the poem is aaa/bbba/ccca/ddda/... with 8 or 9 syllables per line but this is not required

Incredible... You have a mastery of breath and rhyme control that puts most to shame... Your syllable usage, and the way each line magically ties up at the end, as if by some gigantic invisible hand... Stunning... To say the least... Not to mention the divine word choice, and heart wrenching landscape of emotion made... Perfectly penned...

Beautiful write, reminds me of someone I know. I like the invisible ties that bind and yet still able to fly free. I found that to really help a relationship. Valentine

You are welcome muchly. ......::::)))))
this is the best kind of love...bound by it only because we want to be...not because it is dictated or expected...
the more freedom we allow the more the other might want to stay...

nicely done in the form, Julie.
