Stirred Watching What I Cannot Name

Stirred Watching What I Cannot Name

A Poem by Neva Flores Smith - Changefulstorm
"

I shiver in a paradise of crimson red.....................

"
Folded waves savor what now humbles my soul
Last night hangs overhead
The birth of time is felt on my bare arms
I shiver in a paradise of crimson red
Still water has no name beyond my thoughts
All of my wishes are buried in rooms
Unheard guests that sleep on my horizon
Once howled at the silvery moon
All night I have watched what I cannot name
In a garden where soil conceals
What is suddenly blooming only half there
Surface loosens, breath revealed
The issue of days has now salted my fire
Marked its initials on my face
As tracks of tears I wept for blooms
No longer in this place
Still, a beautiful song lies within my sight
Sings the desire of my soul
Stirred watching what I cannot name
Inside of waves that fold
Garden soil delivers and my soul is humbled  
Though weary and down trodden
Blooms return within the folded waves
I see what I’ve forgotten

I really loved the artwork above, It's so beautiful. For the briefest fraction of a second, I thought it was a REAL photograph. I really think it matches REALLY well with the poem, which is absolutely BREATHTAKING by the way. :3
Nothing less to expect from you, Neva. Pure delight. I enjoyed reading this.

You write with such a grace that makes one bare their heart on their sleeve. I'm sucked into the emotion of your work with so much might, but this one was really powerful and hit a lot of emotional cords. Thank you for this one ( and all of your work!), it was beyond beautiful.

Remembering is quite the humbler when it needs to be, the picture and the poem are both strikingly beautiful

This is amazing. I actually reread the first lines, then the second lines, and so on. I came out with another poem with a slightly different message. Just amazing.

A beautiful and wonderfully penned poem. The image at the beginning really represents the poem. The colors, and emotions that condense in your poem. A very lovely and compelling piece. :)

Waves folding into your blooming garden; raise half-blooming memories of half-forgotten. With shivering shimmering arms, red paradise gives the needed light to remember and bloom again the blossoms of your heart's desire. Lady in red dances in delightful movement through her beautiful red blossoms set awave by the endless sea.

Beautiful writing, Neva.

Beauty has many times humbled my soul as I at times feel as Quasimodo to the world ."Why wasn't I made from stone"
