A sigh

ONCE I put a sigh in the heart of the Moon

That sigh is still there

So when the dawn comes
The Moon sighs
With her, sigh All the Stars
In a blinking eye of a moaning heart
With hearts so heavy for the sky
Drops of dews from her tears
Carry that sigh to the world

I hear that sigh
When the wind rustles over the maiden river
I feel the sigh from the womb of a flower
When her last fragrance melts into the careless air
And a lover's dream is broken

    Shamik, This is a nice poem, and your first and penultimate lines have wonderful imagery, so much so that these lines tell a story of their own and can be enjoyed as delightful word arrangements in their own right. John T (Report) Reply
