Roots Intertwined


Maybe we were trees
in our former life:

side by side,
roots deeply tangled,
branches barely touching,
and when the moon
performed its sonata
our leaves sang
the same melody.

and runaways
found a safe haven
from our shelter

Seasons changed,
people changed,
yet we were always
growing together
in love and beauty

side by side.

Perhaps then
we decided that
we would be poets
in this life,
growing together
in love and beauty.

seasons have changed,
people have changed,
and even we are no longer the same

our roots still lie
in fertile soil.

  1. Beautiful, I adored the way you opened the invitive door into the poem and the way that you finished it, full of succulent thoughts in the middle. Great work!


  2. I just edited the poem slightly. Actually, I only added a missing a word: “be” (poets). It is in the original version – no idea what happened. Thank you for letting me know, teacher! :))) ❤


    1. I’m truly humbled by your feedback, Soumyajit. That means a lot coming from you. I have never considered myself “gifted”… though fortunate in many ways. We all have a unique voice and a story to tell – I’m blessed to have been given the words. They’re my “tools”.


    1. Thank you!! I’m so glad you liked the texture. I’m also surprisingly satisfied with the outcome. I am… very sensitive. Luckily, I’ve managed to turn it into my greatest strength. Love and light. – N


  3. I really enjoyed this, Noora. 🙂
    I have felt like this…exactly. Seems like only weeks ago.
    There’s Was a time I felt connected in this way. The timing was off, however, and we lost contact with each other. Mostly due to stubbornness and our pride.
    There is still love. Our roots are still entwined. Surely the first couple lines “did it” for me.


    1. Hey there! Thank you SO much for reading and sharing your personal story. One of the greatest things about poetry is that we can find our own interpretation – as if it was written for us. It is always very inspiring to know that my words have touched someone. 🙂 Much love. – N


  4. Beautiful imagery in this with trees-I hold them dearly in my own work. So lovely! Thanks for the follow on my blog today. I am so honored by it! I’ll be following you too Noora. Blessings to you.


    1. … it surely is! Thank you so much for stopping by and reading my work. I appreciate it very much. I’m always looking forward to your posts, Michele!


    1. It always feels so wonderful when a reader tells me they’ve related to something I’ve written. Thank you deeply for sharing my poem – it made my heart smile.
