The Saturday Symphony #2

Hi guys. Welcome to the second edition of The Saturday Symphony, the weekly feature by yours truly.

I’m glad you are well enough to read this and I pray you get even better.

Here’s something to kick us off.

Together

The northern lights adorn the night sky
Courting the cold arctic below
As I stay by your side
Thawing the ice within your heart

Coral reefs glisten beneath the waves
Turquoise harmony in the vast turbulent ocean
As I listen to your worst but love you all the same
Soothing the fires in your mind

Autumn leaves carpet the forest floor
Iridescent glimmers blooming the derelict woods
As I kiss your insecurities
Bringing comfort to your soul

Unceasing in love

Okay, now that we are all warmed up, let’s get into it.To know the essence of this feature, please check out the first edition here

This week’s three featured posts

  1. Performances by Tara Caribou – Tara is a master of sensual prose, I felt like framing this because it’s really that good. This left me in awe.(A must read!)
  2. A mere drop by Singhpiyush – there’s a special depth to these pair of haiku. I can’t quite place a finger on it, so you’ll have to find out.
  3. have it all by Jackie – in a unique and impactful way, Jackie sprays light on the struggles facing a woman. (You have to read this to feel it)

PONDEROUS THOUGHT

Does love mean giving all of yourself to someone?

Let me know what you think in the comments or in a post.

Still to come

If you’re not featured, it doesn’t mean your posts don’t catch the eye, they do.
And I’m sure you’ll find my comments on some of them.
Most likely you’ll appear on here in the weeks to come. I got you.

Ponderous posts from last week

If you choose to write a post based on the ponderous thought above,

  • just copy the link to this feature post,
  • then put it as a link(pingback) in your own post,

Or leave your post link in the comments section below(or you can do both)
and wherever your post may be, I will find it and I will engage it.(just kidding with the rhetoric but yeah, basically that.)

I’m looking forward to your insights into the pondering section above.
Just leave a comment or write a post and pingback to this one.
I also hope you visit this week’s featured posts and read, like/comment.

I welcome any ideas on how I can improve this feature within its theme of sharing and interaction.

And I more than welcome your participation.
Stay safe and stay loving.#TheSaturdaySymphony

    I looove the poem. Great writing!

    I don’t think it’s possible give all of yourself to someone. You can try but you will beg to have parts of yourself to yourself after sometime.
    Thank you for featuring my post. It’s an honour to be selected. Thank for this great initiative.

    Thanks for the link – I might attempt another duo with another Saturday prompt… or not. I’m a bit swamped again. But the weather is such that I’m not going to far today (too hot) until later this evening…
    So… you’ll have to wait at least for a bit.

    I’ll attempt to visit some of the other featured poets too. Yesterday I was involved with a Zoom for the Buxton festival fringe (international) which will be posted and replayed at Carrot Ranch’s Saddle Up Saloon on Tuesday (if all the tech stuff goes right).

    Another friend of mine that does weekly prompts has a blog just for the prompt as well as a personal blog… I don’t follow that many blogs (just too much in the inbox) but if you created a blog just for the prompt… of course though keep doing what ever suits you best.

    This is really a joyful thing you are doing creating another wonderful and and wonder-filled writing community. Cheers ~Jules

  4. No, I don’t think love does mean giving all of yourself to someone. We all need some privacy. I think love is about mutual friendship, respect, trust, honesty and most of all – communication and empathy.

      Solid morals and foundations Kim. The problem is sometimes the heart wants what it wants😌 but I guess if we tame our hearts under such morals, they can be reigned in

    My advice: keep yourself. And let those you love keep themselves too. This applies to parents and children as well as lovers. In fact, any relationship is richer if it’s a meeting of individuals who own themselves. Then they are truly free to give. (K)
