Poetry in the Air

The moon is absent tonight
Only love illuminates the room
As you finally rest in my embrace
Far away in a dreamland
Yet in my deepest reality

Your slumbering hills
And inviting valleys
My promised land
Waiting to be explored

Anticipated scenery
Much more beautiful
Than any of those dreamy dawns
My yearning heart painted
With poetic words and shades of purple
When we still dreamed of the sunrise
On separate sides of the ocean
That does not divide but unites
Our islands – in love

On this night of wonders
I lay my lips on yours
Just to capture your smile
So that I can carry it with me
To wherever the journey takes us

A peaceful rest drifts over me
And I surrender
Under the covers of something
Unconditional, eternal and safe

I have nothing to wish for anymore
There is poetry in the air tonight

    Under the covers of something unconditional,
    eternal and safe’

      1. I tried to stop editing a couple of times to come to wordpress and keep up a little! Basically done now, but have to write it up to send to the publisher to get the changes – thankfully minimal found – done. One step closer, each day… 🙂 🙂

    1. Happy to hear you enjoy my work, Alex. I have to disagree with you though 🙂 Who can deliver your own heart’s messages better than you? I don’t consider myself that “gifted” just very blessed to have been able to experience something to write about.

    1. Thank you for reading, Gemini. Actually, this piece was written a couple years ago to a former use. Most of my poems here are old, but I have some new poems coming up.

  3. “Your slumbering hills
    And inviting valleys
    My promised land
    Waiting to be explored ” — I dare say that, only the best of the poetesses could ever come up with lines as fine as these.
    Noora, I am speechless. Your poem has stolen my words… one by one……….
