I Knew You From A Distant Dream

I knew you from a distant dream The sweet streams cry out The dumb rocks perspire with dew My heart flutters in your comely grace You're more beautiful than the flower And more sweeter than the nectar's burst Your scent lingers like the wild breeze Your hair escapes thro' the sad light The blue moon dies on your lips. Petal threads blew unannounced It seems like a kiss has touched you It seems like the fading light And those wide brown lips trembles Thro' the twilight songs of sweet lyres Your words hold a certain sweetness But my tongue is dumb as the rocks Dumb to the long drawn kiss of your eyes To but whisper a simple word A swooning word of love Before the morning light may spring Before your hastening feet retreats Down the dusty street Where the fragrance shoots. I knew you from a distant dream The strangled notes of the sea It died, then gave whisper to your name The stars a laurel to your head Your scarf on the lantern seas My heart is clasped against yours And then it beats soberingly fast And then it breathes.... slowly With love's tenderness. I knew you from a distant dream The night bled its frost that day The popular shops shut their eyes And the busy streets went to sleep I've sank my eyes upon you As a roving light humanly divine Sank upon the half black earth. I want you like the round plump grapes That wavers in winters seasonal bloom When the stars would rise and fall On the quivered slender hues Parked lightly on the bench. There's a flame that does exist It burns sweetly upon my dreams There's a pulsating joy you draw From the roots of my sorrowing heart But I in this cold wide earth clung To your cinnamon lips And in your pleasant arms Wide awake Only to die again.

    I absolutely respect your honest harmony of joy and sorrow produced by your Muse Muhhamed. You truly create new angles on classic sentiments, and they are very fresh and intelligent. I enjoyed internalizing this masterful poetry because the experience is so identifiable. Great work, and a FAV. J.A.B.

    - Sad to hear dear friend, Mustapha - As you've probably noticed I'm the only active writing here from Norway ....... My English skills are old and bad .... but I do the best I can. - Yes, there are many poems .... I "drown" in the poem .... "little me" - with my little "kitchen table poems" - You are an accomplished poet - and you're like "important" that all others - I will not say goodbye!! - I wish you a beautiful weekend - oxox // Anne-Lise :

    Thank-you for your recent comment. This work expresses a longing for something wonderful. I find my own dreams of longing funny in that the good stuff is made to appear better and better. Passion always did funny things to my sense of reality. You are a true poet scholar. Keep it up, sir!
