When Light Did Impart

When Light Did Impart

A Poem by Neva Flores Smith - Changefulstorm
"

Our souls all became transparent as glass as we drank in new strength when light did impart.....

"
























Twisted within the East
we drank in silent footsteps
halfway between the days,
at least a thousand times.
Hidden inside our slumber,
visions of strength came into view,
through years unkind.

Pictures of sweetness
lay under everything we saw.
No second thoughts drifted
from our pillows.
Until we wandered into the rains
that fell from the shadowed eyes
of our unsung heroes.

Faded air from the West
turned corners,
began to shine upon our names.
We all confessed from our souls
as we watched storm clouds gather
at midnight,
heard in the sound of our shame.

Soft singing was heard
from the South
emptying love into all of our senses.
A sea of wild seeds
became an orchard of understanding;
storm clouds lifted
a thousand footsteps’ defenses.

Great treasure came from the North
bringing heaven’s hope
quietly to fill the holes in our hearts.
Our souls all became
transparent as glass as we drank
in new strength
when light did impart.

Like eating a good chocolate or drinking good coffee, this poem rolls around your mouth and is as equally sensuous. It leaves impressions flaming in your brain and soul. They don't get much better than your work. I like it. In case you didn't guess

It's like a scene out of a fantasy novel. I can feel everything and the thoughts take romantic shapes. I can even see the light, the storm. It's all so palpable like watching my favorite movie, The Lord Of The Rings.

A sea of wild seeds
became an orchard of understanding;

I love the nature and light them two lines of prose impart...

Dreamy, sensuous feel to the yarn. Felt like I was reading Tennyson in some ways. Also the South and North of it made me think of your civil war though I know it is not about it. 'To fill the holes in our hearts' made me think of bullet holes etc. Again, I know you did not mean it that way.
