A Touch Of Amber Comments

Rating: 3.7
The very air is amber to the touch.
Gnarled fingers trace the signature of warmth.
The slant of sun becomes significant.
Ribbons of west fall grosgrain on tin roofs.

The poem is unique, all the three stanzas are unique by themselves. My three preferred lines: 1. Gnarled fingers trace the signature of warmth. 2. The scent of autumn is the scent of light. 3. An old tree whispers brightness to the dusk. Very delighted to come across such a flowery poem.

amazing, it's poetry like this that makes me sit by the lake and thank the lake for being a lake and as weird as that sounds, i know by reading this, that you understand.

Amber changes perception. Turns ordinary light into something extraordinary - warm, mellow, incandescent. Your poem is rich with amber tones. Your theme is recognizable (particularly that undercurrent of melancholy) but your voice is always new and unique. Such a privilege to read your words. Love, Alison ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥

In amber, the gem, the past lives on, caught in the moment, an ant or fly preserved for eternity in a golden jewel. And so it is with this amber poem, a tribute to friendship not forgotten, but made more dear in memory. A yellow leaf you sent, and send to us all in your music. May many such memorable leaves be added to your book. - Will

Honestly Sandra when I read your poems it expands my heart and touches my crown chakra, as it is called in is the abode of highest consciousness, where matter and energy merge into pure consciousness in a state of intoxicating bliss. such is the impact of your poetry. it leaves a permament stamp. Warm Regards Mamta

A warm, beautiful and touching hymn to Autum and to friendship. You have woven the strands of this great season into one of the sweetest symphonies and have interlaced with the tender moments of true friendship. If nature wanted ambassadors to capture its ever changing moods and hues and keep them alive so that a single moment of its splendour is not lost, you would be one of its first choices. Through your poetry, you have reached the very pinnacle of expressiveness. You make us see what is unseeable with the naked eye and touch the impalpable. You are a true master at allowing the reader to glimpse your wonderous world. Warm regards... Leonard
