Against the insipid, grey Suburban background, Your rusted copper hair Set the street aflame, Like a burn mark on A black and white photo. But that is inconsequential As anything else, Because oh my fucking god, Your eyes seized my rib cage And shook it as if they were Waking up something within me. I know not your name, or who you are, But I swear I've not gazed into eyes Which can decipher me so easily; Eyes so warm, that strip off every Piece of this unneeded cloth On my body, and I still wouldn't shiver On the coldest of the winter nights If I have them to look into. I was passing you, as fate Wanted me to do so today, But I looked at you and mouthed The words, "oh fuck", quite shamelessly; What I really wanted to say was I would barter my soul if I could Stare into the eyes of the man Who gets to stare into yours. I couldn't say this, I just couldn't, But God bless the way you looked away And smiled as if you already knew. Photo by Luca Laconelli

Has anyone, as a parent ever had something you advised your kids to come back to haunt you... from them? I swear my daughter is from another lifetime! LOL. I'll say, "If you make one step, He'll make two." She advises... . 'Don't ask God to order your steps if you ain't gonna move your feet.' . ~clb❤ . #generations #listentoyourkids #advicefrommychild #whenyoureapwhatyousow #butgod #teach #musing #thinking #prose #poetry #poetryart #poetsofinstagram #poems #poetssociety #writer #writersofinstagram #author #writerssociety #books #published #coffee #coffeethoughts #coffeeandpoetry #coffeeandwriting #pjpayne #pjwrites #yourcoffeefix #coffeeandthee

“And so, irrespective of the reason, decency on this occasion won out, and bravery, for courage is demanded not to attack when afraid, and negotiations ensued, and word spread, and among the cherry trees on Palace Gardens Terrace Saeed and Nadia and their neighbours celebrated, they celebrated long into the night.” 🌸🌸🌸. . . . . In ‘Exit West’, Hamid presents a beautiful tale of a love that blooms from the debris of a city destroyed by violence. Blurring the lines between us and them, here and there, then and now, poetry and prose, me and you, this novel is masterwork of fiction. #highlyrecommended . . . . . . #literature #book #bookstagram #exitwest #immigration #home #love #lovestory #mohsinhamid #inspirational #poetry #prose #novel #beauty

My son, my baby, my first great love. Your newly formed heart beating in my growing belly saved my life and gave me a future. Power was placed in your tiny, wrinkled fingers the moment they first waved at the world, the moment we finally met face to face. It’s with grief and joy that I watch you grow, the bittersweet fate of every parent. I long for your gummy grin, but am in awe of your intelligence and your love for math and reading. I ache to hold your soft, eight pound body again, but am blown away by your strength and the fact that you ice skate better than me. My little love, we have grown so much together. You forced me to search for wisdom in my desire to be the mother you deserve. You were the first piece that fit just right in my broken heart.. . . My foolish heart found wisdom in you. -A.
