Poetry, creative writing and a desire to inspire….. Hebrews 11:1 – Now faith is confidence in what we hope for and assurance about what we do not see.

Scorching Heart

phoenix-500469_640

Rising like a revival

Scorching heart

Raging fire

Phoenix transformation

Red sky blazing

Bullshit melting like wax

Soul truth emerging from the ashes

The feint of heart still denying themselves

Step up to the table

Free food for thought

Feeding the mind fiery introspection

Burning notions

Disclosing once closed theories

The phoenix within

Now free

World Poetry Day 3

Whatever you get out of poetry – take it. take it. take it. Words are better off felt than understood.

Sanober Khan


I gave her words 

That would never wilt 

For every time she would read them

They would blossom again

A piece of my heart 

Beat within each petal

World Poetry Day 2

In this story
I am the poet

You’re the poetry.

Arzum Uzun


She was always there 

As often as I would return 

She was always there

And I would sit afar 

Painting her portrait with words

Hoping one day 

I would have the courage to say “hello”

#WorldPoetryDay 1

there are some poems that we leave behind 

some that leave us behind 

while some just live

silently

in the heart

crumble, sometimes
dwindle

disappear

die

and are reborn
when you smile again.

– Sanober Khan, Turquoise Silence


And with great detail 

I pulled the feelings from my heart

And typed them carefully onto the page

Only to take the poem and swallow it

In hopes that better words would grow

Her radiance was indescribable

Gauntlet

The sword never tires

Whatever new beast may rise up

The armor protecting more than the body

Soul warfare

Gauntlet raised

Staring directly into the eyes of evil

I do not flinch, only deepen my stance
