Pink Fingers - Poem by Khairul Ahsan

I can set out on a world tour
On foot, holding your fingers,
Your beautiful, pink fingers.

I can spend years in meditation
Like a sage, if you let me clench
Your pink fingers in my fist.

I can embark on a parachute jump
From the top of the Mt. Everest,
If I have with me, your pink fingers.

I can write a poem every morning,
Only if every night I go to sleep
Holding one or more of your fingers.

    i am putting together my/our August 2017 showcase. i am going to use this poem.

    i noticed this time your use of enclench and i looked it up, as i only can recall hearing
    the word clench/-ed/-ing, not enclench in my life.

    i find a definition of clench which does not fit well, but i get the idea. and a French word enclencher which is a worse fit. in any case, i leave enclench and am happy to use the poem.

    wow.. very nice.
    how you love her pink fingers is so evident
    more than a praise
    more than a motivation
    more than an inspiration

    How very lovely.
    19th century Romanticism lives on in this precious work.

    If a finger could inspire so much what other parts will....! It reminds me the poem Coy Mistress. Poet defines thousand birth not sufficient to illustrate the beauty of beloved her every inch of body. Nice. (Report) Reply
