Three Poems by Bobbi Sinha-Morey

May 22, 2020

 

 

Put a Little Love Away

 

 

Behind the box of sun-faded

tissues quiet as a lamb light

seeps under the blinds,

the honey of the sun warming

the floor in my room, my eyes

still only halfway open, myself

barely, gently coming to life

like an envelope steamed carefully

open. I feel the thumb of God

graze the soft curves of my heart,

letting in a drop of wisdom to

brighten my spirit when I peered

at the skies, and it nudged me

to put a little love away knowing

there's nothing so vulnerable

unless it's your heart to be lifted

on a grey day. A seed of hope

grew inside me so patiently, and

I knew God had meant it for me,

less saddened than I used

to be, peace spilling over inside

my home, joy sprouting all around

me.

A Hint of Sunset Remains

 

 

Even before spring began

a mustard field was in

bloom, a grassy path

beyond it that tickled my

nose where I loved to lie

down. It smelled delicious,

and I'd bury my face in it

to breathe in the green,

tangy scent, lay there in

a sanctuary only God

could give, my daydream

to breathe in the sweet

summer air of His gentle

light, a lull in time in all

the godlike stillness

when only a hint of sunset

remains before the day

ends.

The Morning So Ripe


 

The hum of wind is here,

its sweet aria I've heard

before come to visit me

again, a feather blowing

from heaven in its descent,

the sky's patience blushing

before me, the hands of God

holding my world a little

more firmly; and in all my

heart I've longed for days

like this, the morning so

ripe, the taste of rich dates

on my tongue.
