POEMS ABOUT POETRY: “THE LIGHTEST TOUCH”

“The lightest touch”

Good poetry begins with
the lightest touch,
a breeze arriving from nowhere,
a whispered healing arrival,
a word in your ear,
a settling into things,
then, like a hand in the dark,
it arrests the whole body,
steeling you for revelation.

In the silence that follows
a great line,
you can feel Lazarus,
deep inside
even the laziest, most deathly afraid
part of you,
lift up his hands and walk toward the light.

  1. Awesome poem and the last stanza “lift up his hands and walk toward the light.” was so true to itself. Surrender and move in Him. Lovely picture too, Amira.
