Latent Sparks - Poem by Yasmeen Khan

Who sets ablaze my imagination?
With the glow of the past and
All my fascinations

My songs all quaint, my fairy tales
My rainbow dreams
laughs like a brook and carefree trills

My heart chased the fireflies
Sipped a drop of golden sun
Sinking behind the hills very high

My passion with flower names
My obsession with books and
All that was queer and outré

When my heart used to beat
Like the wings of
A lark singing the songs so sweet

When I winked at the moon
Who bathed in the pool
And the sky with the stars bestrewn

Ah, the stories of an ingénue
Buried like a spark
In the ashes of Time, wake all anew!

    All beautiful... esp. these: When I winked at the moon
    Who bathed in the pool
    And the sky with the stars bestrewn

    Creativity is really a marvel, when it descends upon us, we simply get amazed...this is what makes Huxley thinks that who dictated King Lear to Shakespeare...Tercets are Good Jasmeen! (Report) Reply
