to the sunrise deprived

and the sunset depleted

rest your eyes, listen to me

make sure you are seated


your anemic soul wears aura pale

thirsting for answers of light

circadian constrained, faltering, frail

pupils dimming, desperate for sight


so let me describe

in this most wistful scribe

blissed, burnished memories held

of sun’s exquisite horizon meld


my beloved misanthrope

these heavens are a pastiche of your dreams

through my exuberant eyes you will gasp

at such

    1. Lovely words Sadah; please forgive the delay in replying. I found you in my spam folder and I’m wiping the dust off you, and placing you on the mantle piece proudly πŸ™‚


  1. I close my eyes only to look to your eyes, hoping what I see is not deceptive…though fantastic…but hope to come back to a place I have lost hope in or restoration of faith in the good of humankind. I still have to wrestle with your articulation. Diana you are a wordsmith. Well spoken and soft.

      If a picture is worth a thousand words, then I can tentatively venture that your sweet words are worth a 1000 likes 😊
      I can’t begin to thank you enough, tender heart … 🌹❀️

      8. Free spirits indeed, charming poetess! And yet I find no room at the 11th Hour and 13th floor, so I must come back from my soaring spree to this little paradise on earth πŸ’Ÿ 😏

      9. From Cloud 9 to the 13th Floor (which was not unlucky in the least) there was nothing odd about our upward escapade. A delight hovering with you, sweet lady writer. Paradise is indeed where we are πŸ˜ŒπŸ’Ÿ

  3. What a lovely letter of love professed. I was drawn to your every word. You capture beauty within fragility and strength equally easily. The lover you address appears magically between the words on the page. Summoned through the love of the gifted poet ❀
