Touch to be Heard



Such notions amassed
of Spring's treasures, now found
Though in longing, sweet silence,
my own pleasure is bound

What might someone breathe
to this hesitant heart
That would burn it anew
with a poet's flamed art?

This aching, just 'neath
the smooth surface of skin
Earthen eyes, mingled linens,
murmurs whispered within

Fallen captive, alas
to wysteria's soft words
budding bountiful blossoms
need only touch to be heard

In this Springtime's new birthing
will I know dawn's delight?
Or remain e'er sleeping
Blind to love's mirthful night?

This is just so soft and soothing - lovely language used here Claire...really well done.

What might someone breathe
to this hesitant heart
That would burn it anew
with a poet's flamed art?

Indeed - something we probably all ask ourselves.

Written in gentleness.  I agree with the previous post - soft and soothing, even amid the longing.

Claire~
You write with such soft, graceful
feathered passion.
Always, but always, a pleasure to read.

Her graceful pen
In rhythm passes
Leaving words
For lads and lasses
Soft spoken lines
Bled from her heart
Her touching poems
Well crafted art

Most excellent, beautiful words as always.
My favorite lines:

In this Springtime's new birthing
will I know dawn's delight?
Or remain e'er sleeping
Blind to love's mirthful night?

Claire--the way you write of love, I think that you have vision that is not "Blind to love's mirthful night." Beautiful poem!

Meadow,
And a tear fell inside of me,
Invisible, he could not see.

Beautiful writing. *L* Sy

Severn, I think you're right, in that we all feel alone and unloved or forgotten at times. Thank you for reading and letting me know what you thought.

childomine, thank you. Writing, to me, is a soothing source.

Marge, thank you, and the pleasure flows likewise, to be sure.

Mistikman, I appreciate your reading and responding. Spring is a season of inspiration and beauty, but to share it is even more fulfilling. (*Smile*)

Hoot Owl, a beautiful poem reply from a lovely and spirited lass. Thank you.

JML, I'm glad you enjoyed this...thank you for reading.

Martie, as always, I thank you for your reading and generous response.

Rex, I've not been around as much as I would like either, so I don't think you'll find much of my work, but please do read whatever you want. I must try to catch up as well. Thank you for letting me know you enjoyed this one.

Thanks to all for such encouraging responses.  

~ Claire

MM~ this is a well crafted poem. graceful. I think that there is a typo on "wysteria" (should be wisteria or wistaria) Otherwise, well done.

bboog, thank you for reading. It wasn't a typo, I just spelled it funny by accident. Think I'll just leave it alone though, it rather suits me that way. Thanks for your input.

Dear Claire,

You massage our minds with the gentle strokes, soft words and soothing grace of your poetry. This was a beautiful poem.

A pleasure reading as always.  
Take care.

Light and lovely words, Meadowmuse.  It does indeed seem that we all have a touch of spring fever..

This is so wonderful!!! You have such a gift
within you and I cannot thank you enough for sharing it.

You capture the essence of springtime and the heart afraid to come out from within. What a lovely verse and thought, a mirror of my youth, laced with the emptiness that comes with low self esteem. But there is hope in the wysteria. Loved the poem

Zelda, thank you...a very kind response.

Raven, so glad you saw beauty in my work...thank you.

Liz, yes, Spring is springing regardless of my timid heart. Glad to know that someone "identified" with this.  Thanks so much.
