I wish…

Sirens by the Sea

I wish
I could
From your touch
Like a snowflake
Into its warm
Resting place
Leaving shivers
Of beauty
In its wake

I wish
I could
Into your melody
An undying piece
Of music
That will never

I wish
I could
Your touch
Your melody
I am nothing
But a mute

You are
The voice
In my world
Of music

I wrote this piece while waiting for my muse to fly back to me. Some of you may recognize the first verse – I recycled it from my old piece: “Déjà vu” (October, 2013) – it never felt finished to me.

I found this extraordinary painting from Aquileana’s intriguing and inspiring blog!

    1. “Melodic and smooth flow” is such a lovely compliment. Thank you very much – glad you enjoyed. I really, really, really love this painting. My muse is the one lying on the sand. 🙂


  1. Thank you very much for pointing me towards your post and the beautiful painting, Noora!
    I love your poem, as well, I believe it reflects pure and warm sentiments, that I personaly think we should take more time to express towards both the world in general and the ones we love and are close with.
    I absolutely adore that second stanza, because it feels like it reflects perfectly what I wish for. My husband is a musician, and it perfectly describes what I would like to be for him forever.


    1. Ahh, two artistic souls in love – I bet you inspire each other hugely! I very much agree with you on the sentiments and/or expressing them. Thank you for your thoughts, Oloriel! I’m always so excited to read your feedback.
