Again, some thoughts crowd my mind, mostly at night. I want to get up and put pen to paper, but the weakness of the flesh over rides that desire, and I repeat one word of my thoughts over and over again, like mantra. This is what happened a few nights back. I am glad I remembered the word Osmosis.

This amazing love that we share, the give and take of it all,
is like osmosis. You give and I take, or you take willingly,
what I give. Sometimes, I think that what you give me, is
so titanic, and all consuming. I am super saturated, and want
to spill some of that back into your love, so that we could equalize
and be subtle in the absorption as we mingle.
And then we will be remembered as the free floating passion
that is present throughout the planet.


About Zakiah

I write poetry and some fiction, have a book that was published in 2012. . . Stray Thoughts/Winged Words. I have four grandchildren, ages 16 and half to almost 16 months. I love the ocean, and grew up along the Indian Ocean in South India. I am a retired physician. Don't know much else to say. Thanks for reading. That has been my profile for so many years. My daughter Saadia a great poet and story teller, has two sons; the oldest grandson is now 21 years old, doing architectural engineering at Missouri S&T in Rolla MO. His younger brother is almost 16 and taking driving lessons seriously and is in High School. The other two grandsons, children of my son Sayeed, are 9 and 5. I have recently published another book titled Gulistan, A home of Flowers. It has stories and memories of my childhood and of a distant land which I still consider as my HOME., even though I have lived here in the US for more than fifty years. Hope to see you on my blog.

    This is a beautiful poem, Zakiah! I believe those whom you love feel the equality of the absorption of love. I love the last sentence of this!

  4. So beautiful, SweetZ! I have joy-tears in my eyes.
    You’ve described one of the many wonderful things about love…a shared love does have its give and take times, but it always equalizes when it needs to. 🙂
    PS…something about the night…’tis often when a writer births a word or sentence that turns into a masterpiece.

    True love is like that!! It is always like water in that it finds its own level. And then the sweetness mingles to find homeostasis!!

  6. I like this a lot. Lovely post about true love and giving.
