Loving Nizar's words...


I do not resemble your other lovers, my lady
should another give you a cloud
I give you rain
Should he give you a lantern, I
will give you the moon
Should he give you a branch
I will give you the trees
And if another gives you a ship
I shall give you the journey.

Meant to comment on your last two posts - secrets and big bang. Thanks for both, secrets site both touching & often sad and I hope cleansing for those revealing their secrets and I will tune in to CBC Monday evenings for Big Bang. xo, S & Winn

ps. I'm a poetry novice and find it intimidating at times ... a secret revealed.
