Bonsai- (A Ghazal) by Aaishah Mayet

Aaishah Mayet | December 5th, 2020 | poetry | No Comments


Root me in the soil of wonders here
Let magic nourish my thunders here

As Winter’s wildfires spit, split, sear
Born from pruning shears and blunders here

As water sprays in a blurring haze
Mind: Fly in a flight of dreamers here!

As clay constricts to the cycads hiss
Leaves and branches are not flounders here

Sculptures form, artists stand, ma cheri
As Magnus Opus with Masters here
