Little Light

Little Light

A Poem by Bradley
"

Captivated from the start.

"

I see a shimmer,

A little bright light

Behind her eyes

I capture with mine.

It twirls and dances

And soon takes flight.

Twisting and weaving

It beckons I follow,

I never lose sight.


I feel the warm sun,

A little snug embrace

Behind her smile

I capture with mine.

It skips and sways

And soon kneels down.

Soothing and calming

It beckons I slow,

I catch my breath.


I know a quiet place,

A little peaceful nest

Behind her heart

I capture with mine.

It ebbs and flows

And soon makes rest.

Sitting and breathing

It beckons I stop,

I am home.

Author's Note

Took me a couple days to nail this one down, but very little revising once I got going. I know the flow is unsteady, but so are we. Critiques are always welcome.

What a very sweet poem you've penned here. You're correct the flow is unsteady but I thought it worked well once I got into the bulk of it, I'm on the fence about the rhyming in it though, I don't know if it was intentional or if it just happened, but honestly that's nit-picking. This is heart-felt and beautifully articulate, very strong voice and imagery, and it held my attention. Lovely and thank you for sharing.

A beautiful poem, unsteady like love or a passion for anything. I get someone recognizing their dream, pursuing it and eventually molding it into realization. Like chasing a butterfly.

Maybe its just the mood I'm in, but after I read that a few times and thought about my wife, it brought a tear to my eye.

"It beckons I follow" You have a few lines like this where they are two separate sentences. I feel you are right to put them in the same line but I would suggest putting a semicolon there just as a grammatical thing.
In the first stanza of the poem you are following tightly this 'it' because of how nice, and bright and friendly it is. Then by the second stanza it's still nice and beautiful but it's moving fast and you can't keep up with it and you lose it and finally by the end you have given up but it doesn't matter because 'it' is waiting for you right where you want and need to be. At home.
I don't know what 'it' is thought, at first I thought it might be your mother, but it was personified too flighty to really be a mother. I am currently thinking 'it' might be an idea, a goal the pursuing of that goal. Where you start out really going for it then you miss a little and slow down but you keep at it and meet it but I still feel that is wrong. Let me know. It's well written over all and I like the form. I feel it's a little too obscure to get your meaning across though. Good job :)
