Love sublime

I feel a trembling in my soul
a harmony of scents and sounds
like a forest coming to life
and I think of you in its whispers.

This melancholy heart of mine
trembles and burns
all nature seems to echo my words
and I feel as though immortal.

It is as though the meadows
have been lit by the rising sun
and the world's splendours
are revealed to us alone.

that has come alive with the rising sun
and the splendor of your voice
calls the morning glory to bend with tears
as whispers from the forest nearby
reveal my sublime worship
for your cotton candy heart.

Welcome to Neopoet Midge

If you take the time to read a poem then take the time to let the author know you were there. Study it and form an opinion as well, even if it means going back to it more than once. That is basic critique, what Neopoet is all about.


This is an interesting, almost meditative, peice.
When I see words like sublime, harmony, forest, life, immortal, and rising sun, the word "melancholy" is standing out in a lot of contrast and I wonder if it is misplaced.
Your last stanza is beautiful!


For your kind comments.

Here I express two suggestions, which are probably also biases. 1). Stick to the concrete. Where you have done it, it is done very well (the meadows lit by the rising sun is a great image). 2). Metaphor over simile (e.g., the meadows are lit by the rising sun vs. It is as though the meadows have been lit by the rising sun). This is a good start for a rough draft.
