Soft & Serious

Soft & Serious

A Poem by David L. Nelson

When love walks through the door


 Soft And Serious


There is something soft and serious

Which can be transmitted 

In the length

Of a passing glance

Something that will change

The very atmosphere

The rhythm of the heart

The course of a life


Cause the blood to rush

Color to flush

A rapid blush

The skin to be sensitized

At the moment something hoped for

Is at last realized


The transfer of emotion

From the ordinary moment

On a given day

A monumental explosion

When all things ordinary

Pass away


Shattering the corrosion

Of a lonely heart

As love casually walks through the open door

Kicks off it's welcome shoes

And softly whispers

Amore, amore, amore

A simple day to extrodinary. I love the descriptive
words you used to form the mood, which made the reader
right there flowing with you.
