Untold Stories

Posted on Updated on

Now and then I wash upon

The shores of untold stories,

Begging to be told.

And as I crashed

Upon this sandy shore

Of a broken pair of lovers

I tried my best to cling onto

And grab as many grains as I could.

Before the waves pulled me back again

And the story faded away.

            Love them both!! Please take your time. I still haven’t had a chance to post much – I’ve been just enjoying people’s poems and posts. I will post something new in the near future. Much love to you, too.

    Dear Himani,

    What a wonderful poem which conveys the ephemeral nature of the creative impulse. It seems we can’t conjure it at will, nor can we cajole it back when it departs.

    All good wishes,

    robert

      Thank you so much dear Robert 🙂 Always a delight to see your words and hear your feedback! I enjoyed this piece penned by my friend Zeeshan so much, I had an urge to share it. And I was sure many of those who pass by will be able to relate like you mentioned – true, that such is the nature of love.

      I’ve thought of sharing this book with you I’ve been reading – its called The Seven Days of the Heart by the sufi mystic Ibn- Arabi. If/whenever you get a chance, do give it a read – moves my soul everytime I read the prayerful words, I am sure you’ll enjoy it as much 🙂

      Any chance you’re on facebook? I have just a handful of souls I deeply connect with there.. and you’re definitely of the few people I’d love to stay in touch (as I am not here much). I hope and pray this finds you doing great.

      My best wishes, always.

        Dear Himani,

        I have not read The Seven Days of the Heart. But I will seek it out now, given your comments about it. Thank you for sharing your appreciation of it with me :).

        I am currently not on Facebook. If I do, though, I will *certainly* be looking you up!

        All good wishes,

        robert
