Something beautiful

Something beautiful

A Poem by Michelle N. H.

There is a sigh within my sentences

And a line I have to cross

A light strokes my table to

Escape the morning rush

And to grieve for the loss of

Something beautiful

 

It escapes me every now and then

Between these timid fingers

Like snowflakes during winter

Melts in the palm of a hand

I cannot seem to grasp

What I am not thought

To understand

 

But it was

Yet came to be

For mortal  eyes   only

 Something  beautiful   that    escaped     me

This is such a realisation, that often comes on early mornings... how many times, we feel so rushed, and yearn for a moment of peace, and rest, and awareness... and most of all balance the (three)... ;)

I love it how you richly speak in metaphor, and compare this feeling to snow, that falls on the palm of your hands, for there it melts, and it becomes one, with your skin, as the feeling does fades away, or will "be accepted".

Your ending, is so trancient, impermanent, and ellusive, it's that "precisely" that you can bring over so well with your gifted pen, my sweet Sis. A real beautiful piece of felt poetry here... Lovely! -x-

I could not comprehend these lines and thoughts or perhaps this piece is way ahead of my time . When everything is ripe and ready on my side perhaps me as well may let something so beautiful escape and never again to return .

this is like a thought that melts before it can hit paper...something we almost grasp but can't---something so beautiful, but it doesn't belong to us...and is taken away before the poet can understand it enough to write it.

I don't think much COULD escape you - unless you let it.

my pleasure dear :)
I cannot seem to grasp
What I am not thought
To understand

But it was
Yet came to be
For mortal eyes only
Something beautiful that escaped me

This stanza's very marvelously penned. I enjoyed this and i liked the tune of the phrase, the theme, the expression everything's beautiful as same as you .. Nice choice of words.

Keep on!
OMG! I think i should have to give you 100/100 because you've touched mah heart once again by your beautiful words.

I'm delighted. Thank you, Raymond :)
The snowflake metaphor is perfect here and brought a number of things to mind for me right away. I might run with that in a whole other direction, and I'll probably ruin it, but what you've done here is expressed flawlessly.

I treasure that, thank you.
This is a stunning work of poetry. "I cannot seem to grasp/What I am not thought/To understand."
