My poem “It’s March” published by Kashmir Newspaper.
In this difficult time may God and the beauty of poetry protect us all.

Gabriela

 

 

it’s March and in the flower garden the time breaks into gigantic fire balls
moths rotate around the golden light like mustard seeds in the cool air
my hair grows long until it touches our naked ankles
I set the food on our wooden table
inside your eyes the spring sets scents of narcissuses and daisies
the valley blooms mauve tulips, eclipses of the heart,
by our mountain which is taller than the sky
love moves between your chest and mine
you kiss my cheeks
my hands tousle your hair
a smile from our non-existing past gazes at us
it smells naan and aromatic lamb
my dress is white, your shirt is dark,
I build from flowers our past until I cannot find its end
barefoot I stumble on old tears
are these the tears that you’ve cried?
an evil eye gets tangled in my hair
I hardly breathe
the evil eye now cuts my hair
in your arms,
you carry me on terraces made from your wildest fantasies
my dress is red, what happened to my dress?
your lips taste like mulberries,
mulberries from a tree which grew from the same root as my childhood
there is pain somewhere between the two of us
is this what we call our past?

it’s March and in the flower garden the time breaks into gigantic fire balls
moths rotate around the golden light like mustard seeds in the cool air
you say I love you
my dress is white
your kiss is forged in fire and black passion

it’s March
the March of our future and that of our past

  1. You create a whole world full of senses, scents, sounds and imagery that is deliciously detailed and dreamy. The diametric phrasing, metaphor, and hyperbole are decadent and captivating. Love this, dear friend!

      Have a marvelous day, my friend.

  3. Wow beautiful Button this is so tasty every line rich with texture. “I hardly breathe the evil eye now cuts my hair in your arms,
you carry me on terraces made from your wildest fantasies my dress is red, what happened to my dress?” You touch the season of Spring with such strong visual beauty and then the love and white dress. I feel a beautiful love that changed from a cherished love to a dark love that was slowly changing her as well. Congratulations on your publication that is wonderful. Also thanks for info on pre-orders for your book. I can’t wait to read it over and over. I will also read “Marry me and Spring Floral Certitude” your additional publications in KashmirPen (thanks for the heads up) Hope your day is blessed and that you are feeling well dear friend. Love always Joni. 😘😘❤️🌸🌺

    1. Oh, thank you sweetheart. Your words are as silky as a tropical breeze. I love your interpretation. I have no words to tell you how grateful I am for your support, Joni. You are special. Thank you for your offer to read more and to buy my book. It means a lot to me. I wish you a splendid day in one of our most beautiful states: NC.
      Feeling better, thank you for asking. I called the doctor yesterday morning. He told me that they have no tests but he does not believe I have more than a sinus infection (spring, pollen, allergies). I am much better today, sweetheart.
      Love to everyone
      xoxo

      1. Oh I am so grateful to hear you are better today Button. What a blessing. If you start feeling worse please try and be seen and tested. Buying your book and reading your work is a gift for myself and for my sweetie. You have an amazing day as well my friend and may God Bless you and shine His Light upon you. Hugs beautiful Button. Love Joni

  4. Beautifully written Gabriela, love the flow of those lovely words and the surrealism of verses like “a smile from our non-existing past gazes at us…” una maravilla! No tiene desperdicio, una joya! Loved it!

    1. Thank you so much Francisco. I am thrilled you enjoyed the poem. Your words always bring joy in my life.
      Yes, that’s actually the central line of the poem. I am glad you caught that. If one reads the poem with that line in mind things may appear differently.
      A gem. Thank you for saying that. Mi querido amigo what’s your favorite gem? 🙂
      Que pases buena tarde
      Gabriela

      1. The highest in power and wisdom… or perhaps plenty of beauty. I love the plethora of possible interpretations here.

    1. Thank you so much, Ash. I am so humbled by your words.
      You certainly brought joy into my evening. Thank you.
      Stay safe

      1. You know what?, This actually inspires me for a post. How about I create something where we can all connect? Our little bit to change the world. I have something mind, care to see what I have in store and maybe jump aboard?

      2. That’s a great idea Ash, I would love to see what you have in store.

  5. “The March of our future and that of our past”

    I read this poem as the making of histories, the magnificence of this love that circles infinity with the beauty of spring flowers and the lushness of your words.
    “I build from flowers our past until I cannot find its end”.

    I love the use of the colours of your dress and his shirt. The colours of love and of passion and of pain. Of light and dark.

    I love every line of this beautiful poem. I send you love and hugs but have one request for you too. Please tell me how you are feeling now? Xoxox

    1. Thank you so much my beautiful Rachel. You are the poetess of my soul and I am so thrilled you liked the poem. I love your comment. It is so beautiful and so meaningful. I am worried about you too. I know you are busy and life gets in the way but honestly I miss our late nights chats. Late nights for me 😊
      I feel ok. I am surprised how quickly I come back from whatever I had.
      Sending you love and waiting to read your next poem 💕🤗

      1. I am so pleased you are well!!! I posted a poem earlier today as that had been your request 😉. I needed you to be happy with me 😂. I miss our late night chats too – my schedule has been a little different lately. I don’t know if it will go back to normal soon but I hope so. I’m sorry I’ve been later to posts.

        ♥️❤️💜🖤💛💚💙

      2. You posted! No notification. I am upstairs in my bedroom on my phone. Going down to the library to read your poem right now.

      3. My gorgeous friend, I tried. But my comment does not make justice to your unbelievable poem. Thank you for making my evening so beautiful.
        xoxo

    1. Hola Drew
      Thank you very much for the congrats and the beautiful words. I really appreciate everything you are doing for me. You are great, Drew. However… more important than me inspiring it is you taking care of yourself. Please do that. Promise me?

  6. Congratulations.
    Awesome as always.
    ‘my dress is white, your shirt is dark,
    I build from flowers our past until I cannot find its end
    barefoot I stumble on old tears
    are these the tears that you’ve cried?’

    1. Thank you very much, Shantanu. Great to hear from you. I hope everything is fine with you.
