Words do matter.

Our lives begin to end the day we become silent
about things that matter~ martin luther king
Words heal..
Words reassure..
Words express...

#11 The 'touch' it was

Though ‘twas smooth,
Yet sparks flew.
Soft and gentle,
Yet passion intact.

Calmness of sea,
Warmth of the sun.

Silence spoke volumes,
Yet no songs heard.
Budding new feelings,
Deep seated emotions.

The touch 'twas
something new, something rare..

I loved how you take one moment, one instant of a feeling and layer it with an eternal quality, something that isn't fleeting but lives on forever. The manner you tie in sun and moon adds to this theme. Skillfully done.

In the first verse you contrast its conflicting yet complimenting elements, that which sets ablaze a fire within us yet by that it also brings warmth. Finely done.

The second verse adds much depth in that it evokes images of those things that are vast and tremendous but also composed, thus creating a sense of showing outwardly a turbulent energy that is balanced by an inward calm. In this way it takes us back to the person who is describing the feeling. Beautifully done.

I loved the line, budding new feelings, deep seated emotions for it adds that note of something that contrasts of being fresh and yet ancient too. It brings us back to the theme of the first verse too, of being something everlasting, that was here long before she had known it.

I love the manner your themes of immortal, timeless and eternal quality of this feeling as well as contrasting aspects flow throughout the piece, binding together the whole. So as your last lines say the same again, but upon a different view, it affirms it with every word. Skilfully done.
With love, Sabah
