Feeling Mystical


When the paint brush tip kisses the canvas
all human anxiety dissolves.

We want this kiss.
We crave our lips touching the stars meltingly,
our nervous bodies elevated to ash.

We want this caress,
her moaning sigh beneath his broad-shouldered sky

    Really like the way these 2 lines read out We want this caress, her moaning sigh beneath his broad-shouldered sky. Since were talking about a painter making love to the canvas it was aptly applied in how it was used and gave the reader a very nice image to hold onto while they overlooked the overall painting... Nicely done, Allan Gerard~ (Report) Reply

    I am left speechless like being like touched by lightening after reading Feeling Mystical
    Anxiety, kiss, caress have never been so piercingly felt or expressed.

    Today I've felt the power of the Spirit
    And of poetry like never before,
    This is a Poem, that all should read and adore (Report) Reply

    richly colored... metaphorical and interesting
    sigh!
    would have to be a spiritualist to imbibe the message

Poem of the Day

poet Christina Georgina Rossetti

Where sunless rivers weep
Their waves into the deep,
She sleeps a charmed sleep:
Awake her not.
Led by a single star,
She came from very far
