touch ( aka, am i made of summer )


  • Passion

    touch ( aka, am i made of summer )


    am i made of summer
    could i be awarded such slumber
    and feelings of such gold and grace

    could i be designed by smiles
                                by laughter
    could i be a gift grander with life
    and i am worth the comfort of holding hands

    am i made of summer
    as i proclaim love to be sweeter when sitting in a tree
    and writing my prayers on leaves 

    can my white shirts and blue jeans
    be the lines in-between
    your stories and memories of absolute joy

    am i made of summer
    could i be made of summer

    i hope so

    I am not sure that I understand all of the analogies that you are making here,but got a feeling of warmth and joy from this poem anyway.Nicely written.Peace and light. Terry



    Thank you. Some of the analogies refer to personal items from my life and where hopefully put in place for the reader to interpret at will using their own memory of summer .

    This made me smile warmly. That is not an easy feat. Well done.



    thank you so much. i feel this among my best. i am humble and i know my limits and limitations as i try to break through. i do adore this one however.

    The arrangements of your thoughts are more worthy than words on paper. They settle my soul.

    You have such a light in your soul that shines through your makes me envious of your talent....this was almost whimsical in its approach but also thought provoking as well....You my friend are so much lighter than AIR....and encompass all seasons....You show a smile and fun insights....You breathe in your words so much color and a glimpse of change....You give hope and gifts of warmth with a hug....and....You show strength and put a skip to steps on every one of your journey's.....Ahhh....I'm so sorry for the long comment....but it is all your reading you my friend....hugs and smiles....Cher

    As always I am intrigued by ur writing. It’s funny when trials make us take a look at life from a different view, and what we each may see. Thank u for sharing. Much Love Bree xo



    thank you, Bree. you have helped me to see a brighter side where love and heart is more powerful than despair. i treasure you, your prayers and that never ending bright but never blinding light coming from behind your eyes. thank you.

    The true philosopher and the true poet are one, and a beauty, which is truth, and a truth, which is beauty, is the aim of both.

    Ralph Waldo Emerson, American Poet (1803-1882)
