Softness

Softness, I think of you with softness.

Watching a dance of clouds hear calls from
a beckoning sea and, the sky rushes
to kiss the earth.
This sweeps over my soul
…so passionately.

Sing me a song and
I’ll paint you a picture.
A story without words.

A lazy gull eyes me
and, immune to any other noise
espies the waters gentle wave
we connect through unseen strands
of universal weave on an August breeze.

Life, evolving
expands as outward ripples radiate
in never-ending streams.

Complex simplicity

for you
for me

to share and, to bear witness to the scene.

The liquid light of healing
spreads its canvas across the world
soothing memories for the soul.

  1. This is very beautiful, “we connect othrough unseen strands of universal weave”……and “the liquid light of healing”………lovely, peaceful, one senses a poignancy and a longing, and also acceptance.Beautifully done.

  2. Oh … lovely!! I think I too have experienced such moments of utter peace and with that feeling of “connection with nature”… and really, those are some amazing moments!!
    “Sing me a song and
    I’ll paint you a picture.
    A story without words.” — Totally loved those lines!!! They are so soulful…

  3. This feels delicate and carries the ‘softness’ you express perfectly. A tangible moment of bliss in words with this piece. A beautiful write ~ Rose

  4. softness, softness, mmmmm….the repetition of this word sets the mood right from the start. like kez said, very gentle feel to this and what a beautiful photo to go along with it.

  5. “A story without words”
    I wrote something similar recently but yours came out so much prettier. This piece is airy. Healing does that I guess, it is not pressing, it gives you a sense of lightness. XXXX

  6. This resonates with peace and acceptance. The softness…the imagery…the time and place in my mind that your words allowed me to venture to. Wonderful and MUCH appreciated. Here’s to an amazing write, and OpenLinkNight at the Pub!

  7. Lovely piece. I especially liked:

    “Sing me a song and
    I’ll paint you a picture.
    A story without words.”

    those kind of stories are some of my favorites. :0)

  8. life ever expands but you keep us on the very small with the nature touches…right here…and peaceful…

  9. The texture of your poem is soothing and light, like the title.

    Like these lines:

    Watching a dance of clouds hear calls from
    a beckoning sea and, the sky rushes
    to kiss the earth.
