Their first Dance (Shadorma)

Their first Dance

Hypnotized,
in the dimness of
wild senses.

Determined
to taste ambiguity
of newborn orchids.

    This is beautiful. Despite the form being a relatively short one, Samia manages to pack in such overwhelming emotion, depth and beauty into this poem. The scene of a couples first dance after promising each other forever really stands out here and is filled with such romance and care.

    I adore the second sestet, it captures the new beginning of these lovers so elegantly and the tone of the overall poem is inspiring and hopeful, really captivating the feelings of the beginning of such a new and incredible journey.

    The way it was phrased also leaves an open mystery of what the future has planned, which I always enjoy more than wrapping up with something specific happening.

    Beautiful.
