Snow White

A Poem by Sami Khalil

A frozen dream.

Snow White                   by Sami S. Khalil



A frozen dream


Held in vivid cerise, Snow White’s asleep

Fashioned beauty in rosy slumber’s deep

Bedaubed face no awry eyes squinting

Tangling up my sanity, gently gripping.

 

Fires spit and flare up aside warm drifts

Winded runners shaken to cores’ gifts

Dazzling Christmas ornaments with embers

As moonlights dance around starry splendors.

 

Edges charred like ashen hearts burn slowly

And snow draping barren branches wholly

I lingered in her golden strands muffled

Wrapped in gloved silence hazily baffled.

 

Ensorcelled with, uttering magical spells

Awakened fleeting notions of wedding bells.

Hey Sami :-)
To start with, I love the title!!
So comprehensive with your writing style and beautifully laid, one stanza more wonderful than the other!
and though I love the entire poem, I love the end of it most of all!

GREAT!
:-)))

Very interesting poem. I liked this story about it. Though I was never told the orginal version of Snow White as a child growing up.

This poem is pretty close to being a sonnet, in form. I avoid sonnets like the plague, so I won't try to instruct you, altho many at the cafe could. There's pretty close to 10 syllables per line, except I think most sonnets use an alternating rhyme abab cdcd, etc. It would be fun to work with this poem further to see if you could pull off a sonnet! Now about the meaning. We don't get snow here in California, of course, but this year, we evidently aren't getting any rain either. Only 1.5 inches since last spring! So, if you thought of rainfall as Snow White, you could say she's sound asleep. And while she's sleeping, we're going crazy craving rain, our wells going dry, the threat to wildfires growing year by year, etc. So, your poem conveys a bit of crazed action, which is how I feel, trying not to imagine how bad it could be if we don't get any more rain than this, trying to love our lovely balmy winters, no toweling down wet dogs, etc. No matter how I dance around the tree, I can't stop thinking about how Snow White (aka Rain Bright) is not waking up!!!! (((HUGS))) Fondly, Margie

certainly no witch with a poison apple here. you must be the handsome prince. such fine crafting of words and depth of imagery. invokes a deep sleep with sweet possibilities as it takes one's breath away.

Wrapped in gloved silence hazily baffled.

I loved how you used the language Sami.
"Fires spit and flare up aside warm drifts
Winded runners shaken to cores’ gifts
Dazzling Christmas ornaments with embers
As moonlights dance around starry splendors."
The above lines. So good. Thank you for sharing the outstanding poetry.
