Embers Of A Saharan Day

Pardon the ashes of one once violet,
I the shriveled fruit from the odd,
though from birth twas my soul unlit
until undone shalt I burn for a god.
Entreat thee O watchful, I the faded
turn from a parched branch now perched
upon the dangling vine of the braided
lifeless hope midst eternal scorched!
Lest I deign to feign the breathing
lest I pain the promise of grey,
embrace the sun with which is fleeting
I the embers of a Saharan day.
With which I fold my bristling soul
to thee I forth placeth cajoled,
pardon the remnants of one once whole
I the cinder of infernos cold.

  1. Beautiful! Very soulful.
    Embers and cinders can be revived though. They just need some care and air to glow again, spreading warmth and cheer 🙂

  2. I checked the comments to see if this was somehow an Alexander Pope poem I’d not read yet… your language is archaic, but eloquent and the words well-chosen… I’ll be reading more often, thank you for the poem!

    1. To be compared to Mr. Pope is an honor in itself, I thank you for paying such a compliment. You should know that you are welcome here always and forever. Thank you for visiting.

  3. Hi
    I’m interested to know why you are writing in the style/language of a 19th century poet. You can check mine out on my blog if you like. 🙂
