A Whim by Pietro Polic #WPD2019

A twinkle in Oke’s eyes

Me thinks is worth a sigh

’cause love in all its facets he has shown

That we all live for love and love alone

*

Don’t let that feeling fade away my friend

Don’t let it dissolve in water and sand

’cause we all like that everlasting dream

Of beauty, softness and ice cream…

***

Commentary:

For this year’s #WorldPoetryDay2019 I have decided to publish the works of emerging and already published poets on my blog. Today and on the next few days I will be posting poetry from different poets from all parts of the globe. The #WPD2019 is a harshtag which will be used for this poetry event.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR:

I like to give much credit to Pietro Polic, not just as a writer or teacher but as a friend. He believes in simple things of life and loves travelling. In this piece he has personified “Oke” which literally translate to me. What an honor!
