Naughty Mist

There was a mist
Wanted to linger with the sea
To stand still at the edge of shore
So it can read Poetry
To peak on the sky kissing the sea
Ushering with drapes of sky
Mid of romance the horizon is lost
Like a naughty child
Insisting to float in a silent giggles
That brings laziness to the morning light
With out words it wants to learn
Getting hands on a new silent poetry
With every tide
Living shells behind
Poetry scattered
In every wave ending a journey
A verse in sound of waves

I hope this poem is not too much but I was inspired to write it after my great experience having to read poetry to students. I would like to thank Muscat School for their kind invitation and each students that I met allowing me to recite a bit of poetry and to share some insight on writing poetry. I also received a lovely thank you note from one of the teachers Ms. Julie Armstrong who had encouraged me to go and pay them another visit and share more poetry with students.

Lovely Nasra...very much so liked this one...the idea of silent poetry is very powerful. This is precisely what the heart knows and does regularly.

I'm glad you found an appreciative audience. :) I like this poem that you wrote here, there's a mischief and yet playful. I picture a child running down the beach spreading some kind of joy.

"To stand still at the edge of shore

Beautifully worded, and these lines above captured my gentle attention. Eloquent expressions that takes us into different dreams.

Thanks for sharing :-)
