Aimlessly Pondering            by Sami Khalil



Surely…I have called you, faint of speech.

Timidly, you answered. You gasped for devotion:

“For no compunctious heart is ever true unless repentance follows in surcease.”


Surely…I have called you, by a commanding voice.

You intertwined with commiseration:

“The heart knows its pursuits and does not mislabel its true feelings.”


Surely…I have untitled you, at foreboding intervals.

You mulled over the notions:

“Love is no careless employ. It is a skyward self-vanishing.

It is a restless Earth quaking, a living-loving in boundless

waking, birds’ singing, roses blooming, night watching,

Nature pondering, incessant musing, joy sourcing, light

gleaming, treasure apportioning."


Surely…You have your misgivings.


You rendered me deafly unbecoming…aimlessly pondering!

I agree Sami.
“Love is no careless employ. It is a skyward self-vanishing.
It is a restless Earth quaking, a living-loving in boundless
waking, birds’ singing, roses blooming, night watching,
Nature pondering, incessant musing, joy sourcing, light
gleaming, treasure apportioning."
The above lines could stand alone. Wonderful poetry for love shared.

"a living-loving in boundless waking," that line alone elevates this to such a great degree... poetic, emotional, and yet still so thoughtful.

“The heart knows its pursuits and does not mislabel its true feelings.”

At times my mind question my heart, in my pursuit in all equally balance, i tend to forget what the heart really wants, the heart and mind communicate but at times they are both conflicted, i guess the culprit are the love that doesn't speak or we cage ourselves too much to societys needs.

Sigh.. Life is like that at times, the title itself question made me ponder, when, when does a poet stops in his or her endless pondering.... I guess its a constant as the universe.... Wonderful work, brother...

All true and well said. Gracie Mille....
as i read, i could feel the progression of letting go and daring to love. i like how the first two verses gently ease into the matter with uncertainty and doubt. then the third explodes. love, deeper and deeper it goes getting to the "heart" of the matter and cutting to the chase. matters of the heart are never easy. an acutely accurate portrayal in all its meandering emotion. when we love, we become vulnerable but therein lies the beauty of it. what else could we expect from the greatest thing ... :)

Surely…I have untitled you, at foreboding intervals.

You mulled over the notions:
“Love is no careless employ. It is a skyward self-vanishing.
It is a restless Earth quaking, a living-loving in boundless
waking, birds’ singing, roses blooming, night watching,
Nature pondering, incessant musing, joy sourcing, light
gleaming, treasure apportioning."

she wants love but is timid to go for it or accept it.
the speaker wants her to trust and follow her heart.
she would rather pass his affections off as trifles...
and misgivings, or aimless pondering because she is afraid to take her own heart seriously.
