+ Fav Poet


White is the tiny jasmine growing in my garden
The soft snow that falls on my nose
The cumulus that drifts in the blue sky
The heart of a pristine lotus

 White is gown I wore for him
And the gloved hand on his arm
The Arabian which ran wild in the desert
As mystical as the first ray of dawn

White is the baby in Mary’s arms
And the lilies in the church
The rice and confetti thrown on the bride
The veil which hides her blushing cheeks

White is the dove which brings peace
And the tiny bell that hangs on its neck
The moon that shines gently at night
The stars that shine in her eyes

    This is a tremendous and enlightening write Tahera! You have portrayed the color white so majestically, beautiful way to express this color! Of course the moon being my muse, I like that you included that lovingly withing your poem! What a terrific piece, Great Work!!
