A Love Poem (Scavenger Hunt,NPM1)

This is my humble offering on the first day of April., the National Poetry Month. Val has talked about two “simple rules” about the link and where it should go. Sorry, too old to understant that lingo.
Hope you like this. It’s been a while since love! heh!

The Winning Love

The four chambers of my heart
have spread their sails out
to the idle winds, and ask
that they be transported to
the nebulous island of ANYWHERE!

Men cry that they have loved
and they have lost.
I found my love at the edge
of a desert this late in life, and I say~

 I have loved, and I have won!
My life has found its music and songs-
and the wind-laden chambers of my hear
filled with ethereal nectars, revel in
the beauty of EVERYWHERE– and my life,

oh so rich with the love it has won!


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.
