I have no roots

I have no roots.

I am just a discarded branch on the soil.

I don’t mind you see.

With the years, I have grown small branches upon which leaves often grow. Small green leaves that gently gather my tears in the early morning, and let the sun shines through all the way to my heart.

Right now, the branches are blooming with fragile white petals almost as transparent as my dreams. Soon the wind will blow and they will scatter in a torrent of laughter.

I hope you can hear them.

  1. This one is fatalistically beautiful. It reminds me of Adonis. I studied his book Mihyar of Damascus for my Master’s thesis. You both have these disembodied voices that inhabit different acts of nature. Each new metaphor moves the voice along, gives it flow. I feel like I’m chasing it and it always gets away from me.

  2. This is absolutely amazing!!!

    i just so LOVE the metaphors – so gentle, so tender, so pure – touches my heart like the sound of sitar (an musical instrument used in Indian classical music). Thank you for your wondrous words. 🙂

    1. Thank you. Actually I am not very good at metaphors, for me these are similes (a vivid description). So in many ways, it is what it “is” rather than an “interpretation” through an invented/created image. I hope it makes sense. Thank you again! Kenza.

  3. All those words about tears, sunshine in my heart, laughter in the scattering wind — to “see” them “as is” — is so beautiful! The world is a poem in your heart. Thank you for sharing it with us all. 🙂
