A Poet And Love

Rating: 4.9
The Mississippi-Missouri may dry up one day,
But not a poet's heart. Streams of unrestrained
Feelings continually meander through his mind.
At some blessed moments, some blossom into
A flower like poem, some flow on quietly beneath.

Thoughts of love, or lack of it, manifests in a poet's
Literary works. If he has known love, his words are
Soft and soothing, they cool the parched hearts as
They are read by the forlorn and the lovelorn. If not,
His yearnings beat the cry of a lonely, distant dove.

The Missouri River is dear to me since I reside in Missouri. It is a grand and friendly river, providing relaxation and enjoyment for many people, And now it has contributed to a grand poem from Khairul's pen. How proud I am to be near this river that has inspired this beautiful poem!
