An angel's love ~ (softly sensual)

An angel's love ~ (softly sensual)

A Poem by Richard
"

English [Shakespearean] Sonnet

"



-~··~-~**~-··~··~··~··~··~··~··~··~··~··~··~··~··~-

Across my fields of wonder … drifting by,
like ribbons floating through a wispy dream,
a nymphette whispered soft my name ~ a sigh;
'twas there she stood inside a golden beam.

Her verdant eyes shined like a polished gem,
with sparkling glints that hypnotized my soul,
and (somehow) I was drawn deep into them
in such a way I knew I'd been made whole.

Faint sounds of crystal waters dancing by,
on velvet mossy banks she lay me down.
She taught me love there 'neath a blushing sky,
then wrapped us warm inside her pure white gown.

She took my breath and breathed it back in me;
that instant knew ~ she'd set my spirit free.

Richard,
"An angel's love" just is a flowing and glistening tale of softness and comfort. I see it is a sonnet and I have never written one so this was a joy to read. I like your use of "glistening gem" and "shined like a polished gem". Of course the whole poem begins with this angel "was there she stood within a golden beam." Definitely many dream like phrases and the feeling of a dream is so real. All I can say is "I was impressed." Blessings to you..............Kathy

engrossing .. i was the "man" in this one all the way through ;) softly sensual is an apt description .. well chosen words and phrases accomplished the emotions attached .. dreamy love and warmth flowing .. i am wondering if you considered a different word choice than azure? it is a well worn phrase, tho not negative in your poem .. just wondering ;) such a feel good poem worth reading over again

A Shakespearean sonnet William himself would have been proud of. Your pen flows to page with grace in this beautifully written angelical piece. Indeed you set your readers spirits free.

Love your dedication to form and I love the passion with which you write.. I especially enjoy the sonnets as one of my first friends here used to write them... this poem just as beautiful in sentiment: an angel made you whole and set your spirit free... gorgeous penning, Richard.

Ah, you have written more sonnets! Just lovely. My only critique is that instants don't know; people do. I have no beef with poetic license, but personally I would probably have said "instantly I knew".

this is such a sweet little fairy tale, Richard, full of softness and mysterious images, i love the "crystal waters" and the "velvet mossy banks" and the message that a connection can touch someone so deeply that it sets the spirit free. Hope you found your nymphette!
