A You and an I

A You and an I

written by: Nicole Sara

 

A you and an I
we play like we fly-
the leaves and the flowers
the colors, the hours…

the dreams… an embrace,
a dance full of grace
raining with stars
healing scars
with smile of clouds
and heavenly sounds,

the skies like a rose
with sapphires at its cores,
and dawn’s ruby meadows
through night’s satin shadows

a circle, a glide,
a ray-painted tide,
a soft-hued pastel
casting a spell
on pavements of grey
learning to sway

a song made of two,
of me and
of you

I have been posting on my blog at WordPress since February 2015, words and photography always having been my beloved passions. Writing verse feels otherworldly to me, a portal towards infinite possibilities... always unexpected and liberating. I began by writing poems in Romanian, but in 2016 I also started pairing the originals with their almost word-for-word translation into English. I find inspiration all around me, the beauty and intelligence of everything within or without, which always somehow reminds me of a Gary Paulsen quote I like, "I tried to contain myself... but I escaped!"
