Cinderella’s arc

Cinderella’s arc

Another day with charm
and elegance of simple life,
insignificance with strawberries
dancing in white chocolate.
Another smile kept in the album
of a lost soul, to retain peace,
to lock any disobedience in a sigh,
to ally with feverish lips.

In between the beauty of the last
summer and the memory of
this wintry rain and today
I found a dream,
a desire for tomorrow’s dawn,
for the sunset before dark,
to be a lovely game of clouds,
playing with bright,
blue light in front of
the innocent sun.

And today,
ignoring the fuss around,
I closed my eyes and
I saw you with a map
and a bag full of love,
on the road to me,
in a hurry to reach me
before I disappear in the night,
before I stand,
facing Cinderella’s arc,
in dim and silence to ask …

Will I ever find a
way out of the mirage?
An escape far, faraway?
Will I survive the ash
from the hearth?
Is there a key for the stairs down?
Is there a chance to see you
saving me, before I loose
the crown?

    Oh, bravo! This is absolutely wonderful. I enjoyed every second of it, Blaga. Such a fairytale. Such a romance. And hope and then the denouement with its poignant question. Bravo!

    Thanks for a fine read and the selection of a perfect illustration to go with.

    Allright, this is probably my fifth attempt to comment on this…lets see if my laptop will freeze again.

    I really love this poem, it feels like a romantic fairtytale to me. Cinderella was one of my favourite fairtyales when I was a child, and it’s still one of my favourites – so I really adored all the little references to it in this poem. My favourite lines were: “Will I ever find a way out of the mirage? An escape far, faraway? Will I survive the ash from the hearth?”
    Great job as always Blaga, sorry for the late comment though. Let’s hope this one works.

    Very romantic, and full of passion. Sometimes I wish life was a real fairytale, with that happily ever after ending. You are very good at writing romantic poems! The imagery is just stunning :) I hope you find your prince charming soon

    “to be a lovely game of clouds,
    playing with bright,
    blue light in front of
    the innocent sun” Beautiful imagery!
    Will I ever find a
    way out of the mirage?—-let me remain in the mirage of your poem ..I do not crave any escape from such beauty!

  9. seabell Says:

    I like this poem a lot but the third stanza is the real deal for me… It’s the urgency of present playing against past memories and an uncertain future. Very good, Blaga!

    Loved the image Bubble fly!
    Will I ever find a
    way out of the mirage?
    An escape far, faraway?
    Will I survive the ash
    from the hearth?
    Is there a key for the stairs down?
    Is there a chance to see you
    saving me, before I loose
    the crown?

    I read a little deeper in those words!! Sadness, yearning, end, flickering hope…….

    Superbly woven Dear
