There are places in the world
Soaked in constant light
For days, weeks, or months without end:
The Land of the Midnight Sun
A time when sunset is sunrise.
Easily, my beloved, I can relate this back to you
Because when you’re by my side
I’ve never seen the night.
You are a romantic’s romantic Benjamin! You keep your beloved recipient of these beautiful poems,eternally glowing. I love how you do that. Ahh… to be loved by a poet!!❤️
Sorry this is me Karima on my phone
No worries. Thanks again!
Thanks so much, Karima! That’s all very lovely to hear from you. I appreciate you so much. And I agree: being loved by a poet/artist; that could be such a lovely thing! Not everyone gets that in their lifetime. ❤️
You are very welcome Benjamin and you are so right..as a poet, I have yet to fall in love with another.(poet)..It hasn’t been my destiny…and yet, lucky those who receive the loving words of a poet who has fallen in love with them:) I love how you wear your heart on your sleeve……
I’m in the same boat as you. Never had anyone really write poems about me that I know of, but I’m sure it’s magical thing for those few who get to receive it and something to always remember. Thanks again!
This poem brings out the fragrance of a hopelessly romantic soul, Ben 😊💖
Thanks, Radhika! Such a sweet comment to read 🙂 💖
Yes, it is my sentiment exactly! To be loved in such a beautiful way, it is like living in Paradise.
Yes, Joanna. I think that’s the kind of love we all wish and hope to find, and once you get it … we should try to keep it close. Thanks so much! “Like living in paradise”: good words!
The land of the Midnight Sun and where sunset meets sunrise. You have an amazing way of capturing the emotions of love and being able to illustrate to the reader a vivid picture of your words.
Thanks, Hasan! I always thought the idea of the midnight sun was amazing and sort of unique. Wish I could live in one of the places where it takes place.
Thank you, Diana! 🙂
“Land of the midnight sun.” The words struck me in many of the lines you’ve written. Brilliant work.
Thanks, J.M.. Hope all is well! Always love when I see your name here!
Hope the same for you. I really appreciate your friendship as an author. Keep being yourself and inspiring always.
Wonderful! You’re so talented. 🙂
Thank you!!!!! 🙂
To never see the night because of your Beloved…oooooh, so heavenly. ❤
It sure is the perfect place to be. Idyllic, in fact. ❤
Wow Ben, this is so so beautiful!!!! I absolutely love it, such elegant and soothing writing! You take my imagination on adventures through your amazing work and that’s the gift of a very talented writer!!! Keep shining, my friend 🖤🤗🤍
Thanks so very much, Ace! That’s really sweet and kind and motivating to hear! Thanks for inspiring with your positivity! 🙂
Awww you’re so welcome, my friend!!! I mean every word 🖤🤗🤍💫
Really, thanks again! 🙂
Ohh this is beautiful. Alaska’s nickname is the Land of the Midnight Sun (like Norway!!) so this makes the poem even more special to me because I identify.
That’s so cool. I did read it happens in Alaska. You have seen these midnight suns before then? It’s a really awesome occurrence.
Anywhere above the “Arctic Circle”.
Gorgeous. There is nothing else to say really.
Thanks. You said enough to make me 🙂
And now I want to go to The Land of the Midnight Sun ❤ Beautiful!
Thanks so much, Sunra! 🙂
As sweet as this is, I’ve been to those places where the is little night and it’s a bit crazy making, lol.
Thanks! That’s awesome you’ve been to those places. I’m sure it’s a sight to see!
Sure messes with ones circadian rhythm – kind of like love does, lol.
Haha! You’re right, V.J.. Too funny. 🙂
Wow, as beautiful a poem as always Ben. 🙌💯
