Wordsmithing Saudade

A wistfulness that dare not name
its wist     an

unlonging uprooted with such force
you forget to

forget and long for the unlonged for –
get to the

nub of that which never happened     the
woolly womb

of the wound –

Mun brought up the word ‘Saudade’ while talking of hard-to-pin-down emotions and the dictionary of obscure sorrows.

There is definite wordsmithing in all of this, so I thought of writing my own take on Saudade. Because the words are there, the emotion is there (or is it?), and we can play.
