Love Verbs

A Poem by Sami Khalil
"

A modern English sonnet

"
You will see flashes and hear the thunder
Strikingly, storms come when least expected
Striding golden parades, imputing blunder
Burnishing clouds, beyond what lies protected.

I contemplate the paths of the maelstrom
Impacting befallen moods in wedlock
The fresh scents and bridled sights whence hailed from
Where artists' minds run free and Eagles flock.

So, I write you letters in slow motions
Behind visible walls of driven fibs
Shaking my core of forever notions
This heart eagerly bleeding between ribs.

You will see flashes and hear my lone words
That bid the muse graceful vows and love verbs

Reading this, I get the feeling it is about finding the words within wedlock to show the real, living muse how much they are loved and adored despite the storms that can suddenly arise out of nowhere in a relationship. We can make mistakes, tell silly little fibs and hurt the ones we love leaving us with no choice but to write down and convey our apologies poetically to redeem ourselves and stop the bleeding within. Hopefully a pile of love verbs, both words and actions, bring sunshine back into the equation. Another lovely sonnet, Sami. It touches on all relationships amongst all people.

Sami, lovely to find another sonnet here for your readers after a hiatus. Up to your very high standards. You know I call you Master of the sonnet. Your speciality my friend. This one about the joys and trials of wedlock. Can be turbulent like a stormy sea or as smooth as silk. Whatever, it needs working on. Have a good Wednesday.

top notch. you've outdone yourself. this is pure gold. love leaves us exposed and must be protected at all costs, as passing through storms serves to strengthen if not utterly destroy. shakespeare is rolling over in his grave. bravo!

'Where artists' minds run free and Eagles flock.'

'This heart eagerly bleeding between ribs.'

i love it all from start to finish ... :)

Oooh...
This is a wowzy type of work.
Flashing callbacks, contemplation in storm, eagles and bleedings hearts jammed in-between the small space of each rib... Well, not the eagles, of course...
Is love a verb?
Who cares... Cause I loved this
Thanks for writing it!

Wow! A powerful take on this poem. Thank you kindly Jess for taking the time to read and share.
Very creative…..using strong words to express your feelings about wedlock….there a tendency to put these words on paper, to make things right, or to project your sorrow or whatever mood at the time… the flow of your lines is enlightening, romantic, yet dark at times…. Well that’s what inspires us to write….our moods….excellent!
Warmly, B
