Poem: With Monk on the Radio

Salvador Dali:  Dream Caused by the Flight of a Bumblebee Around
a Pomegranate a Second Before Awakening

Here's an incidental poem of mine, unpublished. Love, by the way, is an incident, is it not.

With Monk on the Radio

She is back to being a woman.
Don’t grieve for the imp
in another dimension where love
is not to be begged for.

Can you imagine?

See the beacon in her heart
as she steers her tempestuous brilliance,
hears wild Gabriel’s trumpet.

Wings reach from a staff to her burst
pomegranate soul whose crimson seeds
she gathers, one now, and now another.

Sarah Sarai, December 2008


  1. Thank you, Lena. I like other of my poems as well, but hey, I hear the compliment.
