#NatureSpeaks: 30 Poems in 30 Days – Day 3: Love and Pain, by Peace Isama

I light the candle of love
Beaming a radiant glare of pain and gain
I reminisce about the feeling,

Lingering butterflies in the meadow of my heart
I kissed each flower in nectar sweetness
For you were the garden

But I once read, “love and pain are perfect twins”

So let’s kindle and rekindle this candle of love
Till it forever glows the undying mystery
“love and pain are perfect twins”!


Love and Pain was inspired by the poem Butterfly Love. You can read more of Isama Peace’s poetry at Isama Peace Blog.


Submissions are still open for the Nature Speaks of Love and Sorrow: 30 Poems in 30 Days Collaboration. The submission details are located here.

stone colored glass

I often think about the past
it’s like looking through stone colored glass

hazy, and filled with trauma, a cold place
inside my chest

lingering among flowers, thought and feeling

reconcile me…

I would be honored if you would go here, and read the rest of my poem. Thank you!

wind chimes

a desolate street feeds
my dreams

with pain and hope both
don’t you know

it’s part of the mystery hidden
inside the love we show

to the sky, and to the people walking by
as we learn more about the lights glimmering in the night

they whisper of shadows long and tall
relational aspects of

our drawn out
souls

ready to depart this plane for another
on the winds of time

and the gentleness of the breeze
my grandmother’s wind chimes, speak to me

of tarnished tears shed over years and years

and of everything you and I hold dear


I’m excited to let you all know that my debut book manuscript is complete! I would like to thank Ingrid Wilson, from Experiments in Fiction, for many fabulous insights, and wonderful editing work. We are now on to book creation and cover design. Exciting!

lavender lines

tumbleweeds thread the head of a pin

while the size of our love’s always been
reminiscent of the dreams laden in your hands

like the flavor of morning dew
know that I’ve always seen you…

I would be honored if you would go here, and read the rest of my poem. Thank you!

until the sun

I stand in line to buy lemons and limes
while reminiscing on the
times

enthralled and divined
while feelings keep coming up

I’ve tried to stop…

I would be honored if you would go here to read the rest of my poem. Thank you!
