Sunday #poem #poetry

this Sunday
hangs black drapes on all my windows
look, i packed some memories for her
my crocheted dress
he liked so much
the smell of jasmine from my hair
a symphony
three roses and aromas of some fruit
prayers and a poem that i wrote
the red of tamarillos from the Spanish bowl
the innocence i cherished
when i was sixteen
Lord!
this Sunday doesnโ€™t stop
she wants my soul

    1. Can you really? ๐Ÿ™‚ Kidding! Thank you from the bottom of my heart, Shantanu. Knowing that you liked it makes me happy!

       
  1. Oh the sacred offering we make to love and so much more.I loved the poem.But have the question, Is the poem written from both point of view ( male and female) cause it starts from the female and ends with male. Just curious.

     
    1. Thank you so much for your kind words my dear Megha. They mean a lot to me.

      The poem is written from my point of view (female). However, I do use “she” for Sunday. I make some offerings to “her” (the Sunday) but she does not want to take them ๐Ÿ™‚

      this Sunday
      hangs black drapes on all my windows
      look, i packed some memories for her [for this Sunday]
      my crocheted dress
      he liked so much
      the smell of jasmine from my hair
      a symphony
      three roses and aromas of some fruit
      prayers and a poem that i wrote
      the red of tamarillos from the Spanish bowl
      the innocence i cherished

    1. Thank you so much for your beautiful comment, Eric. Yes, there are a lot of feelings. It means a lot to me that you saw (felt) that. Thank you again!

       
      1. I hope so Eric. I’ve always appreciated your kind support. Today I appreciate it even more.

         
  3. This is a beautiful masterpiece – this Sunday you speak of, she is beautiful, relentless, intense, she wants it all, she wants you to be immersed in the depths of memory, evoking all of your senses. She wants you all to herself. She is so beautiful and decadent, but a little frightening too. She would be…irrestible, she demands indulgence. I cannot say how much I loved this. I felt at the whim of this Sunday too. I know I would succumb.

     
    1. Your beautiful comment took my breath away!

  4. Hello my dear G. Sorry, I am late to the party. In fact Sunday is nearly over.

    You have written something that has a touch of melancholy. It is wistful and tender. Yet with all your gentleness, it is so powerfully done
    You are a master or is it masterette?

    Either way, you always inspire.

    Hope your Sunday has been good. I hope there were no black shades and true longing for your days of innocence.

    Take care my dear friend. Have a peaceful night.

     
    1. Good morning Drew.

      Most sincere thanks for your kind comment. I hope is powerfully done.

      Wishing you the best Monday ever!

      G

       
      1. Oh, thank you Drew! In the mist of a lot of work. Hopefully I’ll be done by tomorrow.
        Take good care of you and thank you again!
