Let it Flow

Let it Flow

My soul, a river flowing
Its water not always clear
A tempest stirring trouble
Pushing obstacles in its path
Yet it navigates well
and moves on its journey

My heart, along for the ride
Open, vulnerable
Not always strong enough
to handle the bumps and bruises
of this voyage
Hanging on for dear life

Broken – Poem of the Month – May 2022

Broken

Broken like the wing
of an injured bird
Broken is the silence
of words never heard

Broken like branches of a tree
slowly bent and withered
Crippled by the performance
You so cruelly delivered

Feeling shattered and
broken in a thousand parts
It is the sliver of glass
that is optimism in my heart

A heart left in pieces
after you rendered your speech
You have exited my world
and you are now out of reach

I struggle to sweep away
the fragments of a dream
Scattered in explosion
A world of hope to redeem

Broken is my spirit
at the end of this line
Broken is this heart
You took what was mine

Sanaa is hosting Open Link Night at D'Verse Poets tonight.
I wrote this poem about four years ago. 

Naïveté 

Naïveté

A wave of the hand
An inspiring conversation
An expectant mind
Who would lay blame for the
Hope carried in a naïve heart
Or was it just a figment of imagination
Sending you on a path to nowhere?

Stolen – A Quadrille

Stolen

One day when I was not looking
it went missing
I always held it close
Protected it, guarded it
with care and attention
but then in a beat
it was gone
Taken from its hiding place
and without my knowledge
You stole my heart
