**** Roses For Rosanne - Poem by Sulaiman Mohd Yusof

Dust in the winds
Shadows walking leaving trails
Eyes cocking navigate scents meddle the streets
Nightingale scans the sounds of thousands voices
Breaking the night camaraderie
Little birds of Hudson Bay
Whistling the songs of Hoboken array
Holland tunnel a lifeline… splendid to many
Manhattan Upper embraces Manhattan Lower
Epic proportion in sync with memories
Jersey carats of gold got you in me
The Albanian smiths….
Once said “crafted out of crisp”
I kept your smiles at Camden Waterfront
Let it flow like Delaware River……entwined
Your touch as lush as Pinelands
Casting me away to Atlantic blue
Song from ‘The Boss’ reminds me of you
Jersey girl caught me red handed
Rosanne in my heart you stay naked
Our footprints on Cape May a landmark
You stand tall like Statue of Liberty whenever I embark
From Sandy Hook to Long Beach we walk….
With kisses sealed along the places we flock
The Jazzmen of Uncle Patti’s pub fills our souls…
With ‘all that Jazz’ magic……unfolds
Rosanne baby………seagull of Monmouth
I pluck the Roses…
As red as your blushes
Devout me to crushes
Time Square ceases ticking the clock
When the Roses pale as White Rock
Trembled into neon pieces…..
Injured with stitches

    Whew! Have to catch my breath...Sulaiman, such love, such imagery, such a magnificently powerful descriptive journey of experiences shared, places that came alive as you bonded and let your love become true and real. Roseanne, the princess of your life, the flower of choice, is the Queen of Hearts. You are the Man of Hearts, my dear, and we all want everything beautiful to be yours. Carol (Report)Reply

    This flows extremely well, Sulaiman, while engaging the reader with playful and contemplative snapshots of life and your journey. Well done, good sir! There's something here that pretty much anybody out there can relate to. Warm regards, John. (Report)Reply

    A lot better than a lot of the poems that
    people write about.
    Poems like these talk from heart.
    Please read Swimming, Blind Love,
    Xmas and many of mine.
    Feel free to comment.

    I enjoyed the way that you worded the poem and the fact that you were listening to music is difficult to do (without writing some words/lines from the song. It seemed to me that you were talking about a happening in your life that you had with someone. I like the fact of how it is personal in one way and then you can look at it again and it can be a different perspective. (Report)Reply

    Suleman - The magnificent...... YOU HAVE YOUR EMPIRE OF THOUGHTS. YOUR EMPIRE OF FEEL. YOUR EMPIRE OF OBSEVATION. YOU MUST NOT ACCUMULATE THE FANCIFUL IDEAS HERE AND THERE. YOU HAVE A REAL EMPIRE OF TRAGEDIES AROUND YOU. POEM IS AS SWEET AS RED BERRIES OF 'KARRYA CHOTI' AREA OF ALI HYDER JAMALI. NOSTALGIC IN IMPACT. (Report)Reply

    Sometimes, love is so pure and true that we don't need any word to beautify it.
    It is beautiful by itself indeed..
    I think you truly are able to configure love in a way other people aren't.
    Magnificent..
