Across All Winds

Beneath tapestries of sky and clouds of ivory
In a waltz we dance on bridges and on alleys

Across mosques' minarets, we hear the prayers
Then descend to hear the mirth of avid card players

Upon extending roads, we both speed along
Shining with the city lights, singing its songs

With the freedom of vagabonds, with dusk and day
On the vast waterfront, we accelerate, we sway

Whether it was inner solace, or a touch of rage
On your seat I always, share and assuage

We face fierce gusts, we feel the distant sky
Across all winds, my bike and I...

    Hello Young One! It's so good to read you again. Your talent never stops amazing me. I love your visualization in this poem. It reminds me of my youth. I love the sense of freedom in the last verse, last line. When I was your age I used to ride my bike everywhere. It's amazing how far you can travel right! Just beautiful! Take care sweet. Love Light Truth Patricia

    Hey !! What a sense of freedom. The expressionism is wonderful. I could almost feel the wind in my face like a magic carpet ride. Have a wonderful day, Young One. Vince

    Dear Farah, Your Poem Across all winds in the form of Couplets is a remarkable picturization of youthful exuberance. The poem flows charmingly from the beginning to the end. You are good with words. Keep it up. Also I don't want to miss out thanking you for your impressive comments on my poem The Wind of Change.- Mohammad
