Sorry for being MIA for so long. I was on vacation and also had a bit of a writer’s block!
To help me get out of the writer’s block and get back into the habit of writing again; I decided to revisit an old poem of mine. Rewriting this poem was indeed invigorating and I now feel more motivated than ever to pen down my thoughts!
On account of Star Wars Day, here’s a small poem dedicated to my dad! We are all avid literature and cinema aficionados in my family but my father and I share an exceptional love for sci-fi and thriller films especially the Star Wars and Star Trek saga.
This poem recounts the very first time my father narrated the story of Anakin Skywalker to me when I was just 5 years old. After that, we made it a point to watch them all together by renting the DvDs-unforgettable memories! And now, nearly 17 years later, I am gearing up to see the final instalment in the cinema with him.
Without my father; I never would have understood the Star Wars mania or fallen in love with the Skywalker twins, Han Solo and countless others and for that; I am forever grateful to him.
Lastly, May The Fourth Be With You!
Her beauty unmatched and ethereal,
Adorned in her hair, loving myrtle.
She gazed on him down below
As he shed tears of sorrow.
He felt her presence, near yet far—
Circling round like morning star.
He stared at the dark Night,
Wherein their love shone bright.
The two star cross’d lovers
Long’d to be in arms together,
One reached downwards and the other up high-
As the stars did realign themselves in the sky.
