Moonleaves


I am here,
but my body is not.
Spring is here.
Everything is green, light-green.
I can see spring is here,
but I can´t feel it.
My body covered
with dark-green moonleaves,
longing for the soil
that once was mine.

I am here,
but my life is not with me.

    You are certainly one of the best here or anywhere. This is pure imagery, unadulterated imagery. This is what is called as 'Bhavukatha' in Sanskrit. Very very very good and great. (Report) Reply

    this poem is melancholy. Its beautiful though, like the six previous poems I have read so far. You have an eloquence all your own way. I appreciate your poems. I can feel their gentleness and and it soothes me. Your poems, as simple as they are, have so much to them and have much more quality than all the other poets I have read here at Poemhunter. I will continue to read your poems and your poems will definitely be added to my favorites, and if the favorite poets option is available, I will add you there too. I don't say this to flatter you. I am sincerely impressed by your poetry, and thanks for reading mine.

    I can always appreciate a poem that has an association with the 'moon'. It puts a sereal feel and texture to your seasonal references. (Report) Reply

    Pia,
    In the words of the street poets
    ' I feel you'.
    Life death and lingering.
    at least to me
    thanks for the great read
