A journey in Autumn

We are pleased to post a new poem for our Journey’s theme written by our very Shaima AlShaikh titled “A journey in Autumn” We hope you enjoy ^^

On a gloomy day such as this,
As hurricane sandy approaches the east coast to devour all that comes in its way
I rest on a wet bench and stare at the wrinkly leaves that embellish the pavements of the Pennsylvania State University
I look closely as the wind crumbles the leaves and rips them off their mother tree,
And I wonder,
I wonder where will their final destination be?
I wonder if they’ll travel miles and miles before they disappear
I wonder if they’ll reach you.
Maybe, these very leaves will cross your path someday
I close my eyes, and fight your memory
And then I ponder,
I ponder upon my lost dreams,
I ponder upon my lost hope,
I ponder upon my lost self,
And then I think of you,
And I wonder,
Do I ever cross your mind?
Are you somewhere out there,  sitting on a wet bench
Thinking of me too, wondering and pondering?
I miss you.
I miss who I was when I was with you.

  1. I ponder upon my lost dreams,
    I ponder upon my lost hope,
    I ponder upon my lost self,
    And then I think of you”

    These lines stood out for me. I love!
