The Girl From Istanbul Poem by Ebi Robert

The Girl From Istanbul

Rating: 3.8

She's from Istanbul.
She a goddess of a god.
She holds her little god
when the rain runs.
From the cloud and fall.
I can feel her sing songs
for that little boy.

Songs about snows falling on snows,
about a rose standing in a mirror,
about pillows sipping sorrows,
thunder and thundery cloud knows.

She's the girl of Istanbul.
Let her sing and I will follow.
Or I would learn and join her tomorrow.
Let her tell us what the rain knows.
So we would know where it goes.
Whether it falls like the snow
or sings like a dove.

This poem is dedicated to a friend of mine named OZE. She's from ISTANBUL, TURKEY. The poem is about the conversation we had on the 18 of may 2012 about rain. I told her i love rain. And she said, she too, especially when at home. And the time we had the conversation, rain was falling heavilly in ISTANBUL. So i was inspired to write a poem about what i see in my minds eye.
I call her a godess, because we as humans are known as smaller gods. And since she is a female i called her a godess. 'of a god. The god here is her father. That is' she is born of a man. Not really a spiritual godess as people may seem. Her little one in line 3 is her brother she was sleeping with when the rain was falling.

You are good poet. You have absolutely a true poetic sense. You can read my poems such as Prayer of a broom, Poem of Hatred, She: 1, She: 2 etc and comment.

Romantic metaphors and sights burst forth in your lines. Even in Tamil Nadu of India, the daughters are the goddesses to fathers. Wonderful poem. Best wishes.
