Still

by Everlasting   Apr 11, 2016


I love you, still: like waters streaming tranquil
along a shore or a canal, just like that - still.
And when I see the moon above the sky
I still love you, my darling dear, just like that:

Oh yes, still.

    A remnant comment from the weekly contest:

    "This poem might seem simplistic and too short to be given full points, but I believe that its minimalism is exactly what makes this poem outstanding. The usage of the word "still" with its double meaning was well executed. It's enough to draw the reader into the flow of this poem, which is soft and soothing. I love how this poem blossoms into such a straight-forward statement, simply triggered by seeing the moon above the sky. This poem is a perfect example of using ordinary phrases but turning it nice with tone, flow and repetition."

    Everlasting grabbed my heart this week and ran with it!

    Sometimes, the best poetry ever is just a few lines, the message within this poem is so powerful it needed to be small and elegant.

    Still and tranquil are words that will make any reader swoon... So pretty!
