for sanah, my prayer

profile 3

of sanah

your beauty breaking its way

through slits in the skyline

tears choke your hurrah

and then lend an edge

to its misty glow

fatigue marinates itself

into a rare restful sleep

navigating the tumble

of heart and soul

you draw your freedom

in a myriad crayon shades

as inane fleeting deadlines

intercept your compelling stories

you find nostalgia in the aroma

of your homemade treat;and

stay vulnerable in the strength

of those you love most

an endearing passion

wraps around your voice

as you allow your hands

to choreograph footprints

while you secretly vanquish

hidden gremlins on the stage

mermaid-like in mystery,

you explore depths in

the corals of your mind

relishing the obvious journey

still elusive like the fragrance

that lingers stoic and strong

after you empty a room

fragmented conversations

are forgotten for the sweetness

of drifting dreams; deep breaths

bubble life into wishing jars

confidence is locked forever

in the letters of compassion

etched on your wrist

as teacher and student

you read and write the world

and bookmark in your eyes

its rainbows and shadows

for sanah

as you unravel your own magic

find the rhythm in commotion

prize your heart’s possessions

for you belong to the twilight

that sings its lullaby

and are the dawn

that hums its chorus

you, my child, bring to life

the very force of nature

and many star strings

from the constellation

to which you belong

there is a reason

you are called “prayer”
