I see you anywhere... any time... (Photo by me)


 

Beauty

 

I felt
I saw
too much beauty
on the uncertain edge of a snowstorm
before the first flakes started to float
in the electrified air
I watched
the swirling leaves
and litter
turning
twirling
whirling
against the red brick wall
of a back alley
I felt a force
benevolent but strong
just before the snow
I thought my heart would fail
from too much beauty
on the rim of the storm
I exhaled
and saw my breath vanish
as the first flakes started
to fall
I saw

YOU

Absolutely beautiful Regis, so much phenomenal beauty in nature, that we can almost liken it to a love affair. We experience it, we relish it, we live it, we absorb it, stand in awe of it's magnificence and how it touches our heart and makes us feel.

Just lovely,
Angel

I love this, and that picture is so beautiful, it is a fitting name, and I like the tightness of the simplicity of words in this. I love work that doesn't need to be striving so hard to cough up a thesaurus to get across a simple message. This shows skill, not pretension.

Reg,

Unbelievable...this is one of the most beautifully spoken poems I have read in a long time. I myself have experienced a moment like this. It is like an ecstasy, it comes very rare. You were able to capture the beauty on film and to write about it...in words so that we too can feel it...absolutely magnificent.

Awesome talent, Thank you for reviewing the 2 poems of mine, and I invite yoi to read He is Risen, My Children, Ode to forebode, and I cannot recieve you, and I guess I would love it if you read them all, as somehow , I think your input is important and valable.

Dearest Regis,

Of all the poetry I have read or yours (and I have read a lot), this one had the most impact. It is simply the most powerful piece I have ever seen in print. It brims and overflows with love and brings with it a sense of awe. You have experienced true beauty and it has touched you profoundly. I don't experience envy often (finding it a fruitless emotion)but I felt it here. How I wish I could express as deeply as you have. Magical and enchanting!
Love Chanti

This is good as is. I think you don't need to do much tinkering with it. If you are going to use the ! at the end, you need to punctuate the whole thing. All or nothing, that's the rule. Otherwise, I like it as it is.

Regis, this is stunning poetry - so visual and emotionally powerful that it just causes the sharp intake of breath that you capture here so well in words! That bittersweet feeling of wanting to enjoy something SO much that you almost want to defer that moment of enjoyment so that you can savour it long and for it never to disappear - no matter how fleeting in actuality! Also the snow-thing! REAL Canadian snow must be WONDERFUL and those of us who have only thoughts of UK slush to base our experience on are given a fantastic treat of the real thing in this wonderful write. Thank you! KB
