Fay Slimm

(Ageless. / in Cornwall U.K.)

A Haunt's Hush.


Diamonds of creamed
............................... misty-pearl
Hang in the dank air.

Soundless,
................ the thick calm unfurls
On every leaf there.

The woodland bathes
................................ in the hush.
Shadows are pregnant
With wait,
............. while the deeps of lush
Green sigh,
............................ and childlike
I stand in awe,
............................. undisturbed.
The hushed quiet seeps
..........................into my psyche.

Nothing stirs to break
..................the awesome scene.
Hauntingly placid,
............................ transcendent
And spectred
.......................... with sensation,
This heals with a peace
................................ which stills
My mind so serenely.

    I was lost in the music of your poem and the beauty of metaphors, epithets and trasferred eithets you have used. Excellent poetry.

Poem of the Day

poet Edmund Spenser

Of this worlds theatre in which we stay,
My love like the spectator ydly sits
Beholding me that all the pageants play,
Disguysing diversly my troubled wits.
