Princess And The Stranger

Poem by Ata Khan

Deep,
black eyes
unfamiliar
yet known eyes
lost, in the air
gazing
tranquil, clear
shining, smiling
and so bright

Whispered
'O stranger
come and see
do you see what I see?
rainbow dances
around me
flying doves
surround me
dewdrops fall
how longingly
to kiss,
and embrace
with warmth
my cheeks, lips
and this face..

The whirling breeze
my locks it
ruffles
In loving, softness
nature speaks
my heavenliness
it celebrates

But stranger
confess
you may
What brings you
here today? '

Her eyes still lost
in the air
Was it hope, or despair?

'O Princess
this i know
What you whisper
is very unique
What you see
is even rare
I, thus feel
most mundane
to follow an obvious
path ordained
I can't see
what you see
But
what i see
you can't admire

I see you
and these eyes...

    I really liked it.. I like the way the words just seem to flow one after the other- a little like the work of Walter de la Mare- and I can't wait to read your other poems(Report)Reply
