"A Quiet Thought..."

"A Quiet Thought..."

A Poem by Chris

It was:

"A Quiet Thought..."

Her beauty is in my eyes -
so soft and clear, just beyond touch
but not beyond dreams...

Walking the meadow... Mmmmmmm,
following the stream,
until finding sheltered place
can sit and just be quiet together,
watching... feeling the air,
as trees move in the lee of a soft autumn's breeze...
feeling the grass beneath tickled feet,
loving the softness of her hand in mine,
watching the sunset in her eyes,
at peace...
in time and place


"A Quiet Thought..."

Life is beyond dreams
as you sit with empty hands
gazing and gazing

at the mysts of ne'er wills.

And it matters how?

I get the sense there is a longing for someone who either isn't real or who you feel is unatainable. That you have this perfect dream/idea of her and what it would be like for the two of you to be together for real.
It's a lo vely write, a bit on the sad side as well.

Is this a wistful dream of something that never happened? Maybe the dream could still be a reality, it just might have to be with someone else.

Sweet and sad at the same time. But I like it ^-^

This has such a bittersweet feel, both serene and poignant, a love that can never be. Such a simple and natural desire. Beautifully written.
