Casablanca

In virgin white her eyes shine
bright enough to match her sparkling
broach and earrings.

She asks Sam the pianist to play
that song.
Memories of love and deepest desire
relight the old kindling
as he plays and sings.

Suddenly Rick arrives
tells Sam to quit playing that song
but then… he sees her.

Time stands still as they
drink each other in.
Her eyes fill with tears
his own with angry thunder
yet, there is no denying
the chemistry

That spark of love between them
was still there.

Always a sucker for love and romance. Casablanca Released in 1942 has to be about one of the most romantic movies of love and loss of it I can think of and, along with a whole host of other golden oldies, it has to be one of my most favourite. Ingrid Bergman and Humphrey Bogart simply oozed sexual chemistry. Of course the famous lines are never forgotten either although he never did actually say: “Play it again Sam” at all, it’s what most people say. But, he did say final line: “Here’s looking at you kid.”

  1. Time stands still as they

    Oh, yes!! You captured that intense moment so very well, Bren!!

  2. Like Sherry, I had never seen this, but I finally did watch it a few months ago, and loved it. It deserves its romantic reputation! A fine choice to use as inspiration for your love poem, Daydreamer. Thanks for being part of FBF.

  3. smiles…lovely bren….music def has a way of taking us there on both ends of the emotional spectrum….but when you get the right two people together…there is no stopping that…smiles…

  4. Now that is one I saw, but it’s been so long I don’t remember much, although it’s been quoted so many times it isn’t funny.

  5. I am so happy that you were the one to chose the moment in Casablanca and to wrap your magic around it:

    “Her eyes fill with tears
    his own with angry thunder
    yet, there is no denying
    the chemistry”

  6. Believe it or not, I have never seen it, though it is one of my sister’s faves. May have to watch it. I love “here’s looking at you, kid.”
