Best Poem of Christine Natale

Not In Love

It is hard to write a love poem
When you’re not in love.
I long to sing of flowers of fire
And burning stars above.
I want to feel as silver-quick
As a river to the sea,
And to tremble like a silver leaf
Upon an aspen tree;
To sing a world turned inside out
And to see the mountains move,
But it’s hard to write a love poem
When you’re not in love.

Read the full of Not In Love

Leaf

Lately I hung clinging tightly
Against small gusts of fortune
Torn off by time and summer’s going
I circle and dance like a leaf in the wind.

I carry a seed, fearful courage -
A wayward hope, full of tomorrow.
Carry me wind, I have no branch -
Seeking fertile ground, sheltering home.

[Hata Bildir]
