Time Heals

by WordLover

As the sharp prick of a needle
Opens a vein
Time deftly dims the memory
Dulling the pain

This is a Naani poem.
(4 lines of poetry, 20 to 25 syllable count)

So full of insight my friend. I find this Nanni poem a tip for the broken and the crying - that tip being that time really does heel after the sickness. The memory fades and the pain is dulled.

Very good write

    Thanks sweetie - I can't seem to stop doing these shorter forms. I really like them though because I think they can be very strong. Thank God for the fact that time does take care of the pain for us - that is a blessing for sure. Take care, my sweet Pink friend.

I have to say considering the length
this was a clearly painted picture...
brilliant

    dear twistedmistress - I thank you so much for your comment. I am hooked lately on some of these shorter forms - it's fun to try and paint something realistic in a few words. Thanks for stopping by, it's much appreciated.

    hey, thanks conor! This is a cool form, I think - it's just long enough to be able to make it strong. Also makes it challenging as well. So glad you enjoyed, it means a lot!

Very beautiful and expressed with such effective use of language. I am just a bit puzzled by the contrast between L1's "sharp prick of a needle" and the subsequent "dim" and "dulling"... is this intentional?

This concept of a Naani poem is new to me, thank you for introducing me to it, I must find out more!

Good work, Sandy!

    Ozy, the Naani is kind of new to me as well. I stumbled across it and thought it would be fun to try. Yes, I did try and contrast the sharp jab of a needle against the words dim and dulling pain. I thought the words sounded well together when spoken out loud. Every day I try and do something a little braver and different with my writing, take baby steps, in hopes that one day I can at least reach "near" the caliber of some of the really amazing writers on this site (yourself included of course). Thanks for your comments, much appreciated, as always.

    Thanks Jess, I suppose that knowing that time does take care of the hurt, if not immediately or as quickly as we'd like sometimes, eventually it starts to fade. Thanks for stopping by, as always, my friend.

Crystal clear, vibrant images achieved
in very few words, my friend.
Ah, and your student learns a new form as well.
Very elegant, Sandy... enjoyed the read.

    Hey, don't you love how we pattern our writings on the events of our lives (at least I know I do). Sometimes from the worst days, the best poems are born. I am going to sit down tonight, when things are quiet and write to you. I promise.

      Oh pleasse, I can hardly wait to hear from you.
      I'm all packed again and ready to fly!
      I can't restrain myself - It's been a rather long
      and lonely forty-five days apart.
      Wheeeee and yippee!

    Hey!! For some reason, I find myself drawn to these shorter forms, haikus, tankas, etc. I love to be able to make a strong image in a few words. Thanks my friend for stopping by and I'm so glad you enjoyed!!

    Oh Craig, thanks so much! I do think that this is my strong suit. Sometimes my longer writes just don't have the same impact for me as the shorter ones. I love the challenge of finding just the right word or phrase, knowing I'm held to a strict syllable count. I'm so glad you liked this one, and I really appreciate your kind words.

    Take care.

    Oh thank you my friend! I really think I like them best of all - sometimes you have sooo much emotion welling up inside (I know you know exactly how it feels) and those few words can cut right to the heart of the matter. I appreciate your sweet words.

A Poem that
have a great message.

I might be right
or wrong.

The pain of someone's memory
might take some time to heal off.

Is that right?
I hope so.

Great Poem.

Wonderful. comforting to know how, time can heal. trouble is, I feel the needle everyday, and wounds are still sore. and haunt my mind. But, with time, like you say, we'll get there Girl. I find writing poems, very therapeutic, for getting things off my chest, and thus, soothing the memories, and healing them. An incredable evocative piece of work, to add to one amazing catalogue of yours. well done. take care. as always. Pete. Tyger Tyger. LOL . Laughing

    oh I thank you so much Pete! I really am a novice compared to all the amazing and talented folks on GP, but I'm trying to improve every day. The wonderful people (yourself included of course) are so inspiring and really help to build up confidence. And yes, writing helps "clear out the cobwebs" always. I thank you once again and am so glad you enjoyed.
