FEELINGS

FEELINGS........

I feel his touch
In the dwindling heat of the setting sun
In the heavy fragrance of flowers bright
In the soft feel of the cool evening breeze

I feel his touch
In the flickering twinkle of a thousand stars
In the soft light of the half moon
In the gentle waves of calm seas

I feel his touch
In the unending paths leading to nowhere
In the warm beat of a lonely heart
In the undulating sway of dancing shadows

I feel his touch
Ever so lightly, so loving, so real
Wonderfully, as the cold nights turn warm
As the dark night gently gives way to a new dawn

I feel his touch
As love wraps itself around me,
.......and feelings take over.

the repetition

but let stalwarts comment

I feel his touch
in the dwindling heat of the setting sun
in the heavy fragrance of flowers bright
in the soft feel of the cool evening breeze

(I feel his touch).....may modify
in the flickering twinkle of a thousand stars
in the soft light of the half moon
in the gentle waves of calm seas

then rest will be history

inclined to agree with Lovedly and say that you might modify the first line of each stanza, however it doesn't make the poem any less heartfelt or bad in any way, it is a good poem. Welcome to Neopoet and I hope that you find us helpful. We will try hard to give constructive criticism and be a place where you can soar. Good luck here on Neo. ~ Geezer

is on point, slightly modifying each stanza's first line will draw the reader in even more, as will dropping the initial caps - they can be distracting. That being said, this is a lovely, deep, beautiful poem. I could feel the longing all the way through, it has a lot of feeling in it. The reflection of it all in the cosmos, the moon and the twinkling stars - beautiful imagery.

 

Love,
Steph

... to remember what it felt like to have my being set alight
beneath the moon when I was full and I was dancing with the night
when I could see beyond my sight
when I could see beyond my sight
