Reverie (Sijo)

by GB   Feb 7, 2015


Celestial kisses from womb of oblivion, in harmony.
Oh, beloved, my madness seeks for shelter, unforgettable,
a constellation of creeping beauty, I observe you.

    Dear Samia,

    Your poem is a gentle and female tribute to once-in-a-lifetime Love.
    Only when we truly and deeply love do we feel the need to stay focussed on the other, both mentally and physically and drink in the wonder or who they are.

    A famous female mystic said that we do not open our eyes to reality over time with regards to the love we hold for the other, but we start to gradually fail to see the magic in them. I tend to agree:)

    Well done:) xx Ingrid

    I think the closing line wrapped this up nicely, with a bow. But the first line I think detracts from this write a little. Only because the other lines are incredible. A very fun poem to read aloud. Great work GB
