a touch

Open like wings

I  am   woman,

a dreamer, a child.

My bones and veins are quiescent

falling at the precipice of sleep.

You are a distant spirit I

reach for with weightless hands

trailing your form with my senses,

threads of filament, the weight

of a sigh.

I have locked away your secrets,

in your heart confided my own.

Although we have been here forever

we only touch with our minds.

  1. Holly, beautifully written. The middle portion is what resonated most, the “weightless hands” and the “weight of a sigh” are so subtle and profound. I keep thinking of a line from a movie “It is a dream I have.” Well done, Keith

  2. I’m in love with this poem of yours, it is so very, very beautiful and so is the picture you chose to go with it. Perfection in an imperfect world. WOW

  3. It was an act and attempt to appreciate. I have no intention of hurting you at all. We have been friends and have interacted with our writings and have derived the satisfaction and joy out of them in the past so many months. Over a period of time in the blogging world we bloggers interact, communicate, support, help and come close to each other and that had made me feel so.
    It makes me remember your personal comment of wishing me love and roses forever that had made me very happy and in reply I told, that let them be as fresh as they have come from your Heart. I am also deeply grateful to you for having helped me in solving my Akismet problem. After it got over you also were so happy to know about that.
    I have been very happy with people in this Blog world and I feel this is one attempt to make the whole world happy.
    No matters, we shall be visiting each other and shall confine ourselves to our writings.
    I shall appreciate no further discussion in this matter. Okay!
    Thank You
