a burst of lovely yellows hopes
a star of the stunning sky.
them, looking down
upon the other flowerets,
cultivated by bonsai.

anchored in the substrata it stems
more than shoulders, more than heights.
verdant green leaves of which look
less like lance-ovate but my heart,
lumpish and ever fertile.

course hairs run all along its surface,
leaves ticklish and sandpaper-like.
blowing in the air of poetry, mumbling me-
” faulty aren’t always the thorny roses, but
also, us, who you poets never describe.”

soon the field calls for an Aster romance,
the sun crosses the horizon and them, their paths.
blossoming may have the entire garland
but sunflower of the Peach Passion
has it’s picturesque vehement too.

Read Poem: YOUR VESSEL, by Alia Kassem

Wake up and live – I was told today.
Ignite a transformation, to be built.
When an event happens and tears may fall.
You won’t know what to do,
Until the moment occurs when you realise,
The end isn’t the end.
It’s a birth of a new beginning, of another adventure.
You’re a vessel,
Your soul will become a state-of-the-art.
When that arises and you go forth into your stages of healing.
You will be reborn into another.
All you will think of is the worse at times.
Fall into darkness so to speak.
But your path remains to be continued.
However, you wish it to be.
You’ll shake, fears will grow, hurt will manifest,
But you’re still breathing.
So, exhale, pursue the outlook of what’s to come.
You may be a vessel of short stories, long adventures or one night.
But remember this,
You’re the vessel to your own…
