Something was touching my heart …

Something was touching my heart –

I knew not what ..

tears welled and fell

without explanation.


The sun shone;

a sharp


drummed an incantation.


What nameless sorrow

did my heart defend

and let me not know

of its lamentation?


In ice-water pools

hailstones meld and swell

into liquefied light ..

dispelling the fears

of my imagination.


Something was touching my soul –

I knew not what

intimation ..

The transient storm

an image;

an inspiration … .

    I read this haunting poem early in the morning and so ecstatically self-indulgent was my reaction that I completely overlooked leaving a comment.
    Now, we are entering dangerous waters, atom. With the universality of the truth of your words, so beautiful and captivating, lesser people like me may take subliminal ownership 🙂

    Hello Shermeen …

    You’re very kind .. thank you very much. I’m touched by your words but lesser doesn’t come into it … all souls are equal unto God 🙂
