When Love Meets With Peace.

When Love Meets With Peace.

A Poem by Kay Salisu Titilola
"

...

"
Sunlight subsidizes sight.
Moon makes mind mild.
simple sorry settles skirmish,
making merriment meeting mirth.

Sincere smile salvages spirit,
strongly stopping stubborn sadness.
Solace softens suffering skins,
stimulating several souls soundness.

Segregation suffers sound success.
mislaying men in million miles.
Solidarity secures singleness safeness,
making men much more in might.

Some strong alliteration and abstract art in the way love and peace coexist. A kind word turns away wrath, the verse seems to say. The rhyme scheme settles into itself in the second stanza, and echoes the sibilants at the start of most of the lines. It’s like the consonant sounds are saying, shush, be silent. Turn down the noise. The bilabials seem to say, mmm. Taste these words. :):). While you’re tasting, you won’t be hating or fighting.

Artful and enjoyable!!!

This is, without a doubt, an overdose of alliteration . . . but since I'm an OCD rhyming thesaurus-flipping fool, I kinda like it! *wink! wink!* At least you didn't grab the simple obvious strings . . . instead it's clear you spent some time playing with words & putting these long alliterative strings together thoughtfully. I also like how your expressions are HINTS of what you're really saying about human nature . . . the crux of SHOW instead of tell, letting the reader take your subtlety in whatever different direction he/she goes with it! (((HUGS))) Fondly, Margie

You asked, "What do you think?"

Well, Dear Poet ✍
What I think is that, until now, I've never read a poem composed almost entirely of sibilance and alliteration … still, your thoughts, feelings, insights, emotions, and message come through loud and clear.

Love and peace accomplishes far more that hate and war, and a simple, "I'm sorry!" has been the beginning that's ended untold numbers of conflicts.

I'd say this amazing poem borders on brilliance, and I am happy to have found it … thank you sincerely, Sir, for sharing! ⁓ Richard 🍃

From the perspective of the world of men and in the climate of today with all its troubles

"simple sorry settles skirmish"

and with smiles

that could go some way to bring about a little peace. You know that saying "from little acorns grow huge oaks". We have to start somewhere. Thoughtful and positive thinking here Kay.

You are very welcome.
smiles can penetrate sadness...they are necessary...the alliteration is to smile upon in this piece.

I wrote this piece, trying to make out something new.
Segregation suffers sound success.
