Touch Me - Dusk

at sunset
cooler breezes
evoke slight goose bumps
or perhaps they are caused
by the spectral reflection
of sky colors kissing the sea
overwhelmed by many sensations
dusk evolves slowly in the April sky
I shiver, knowing Holy Saturday
pulls curtains of anguish to a close
remaining awake to see dawn
tapping Resurrection’s hope
wrapping my weary heart
sensing salvation
as Christ rises
Easter morn
love brings
*For Nette's first contest theme “Dusk” and “Touch”

I am back to this warm piece about dusk! No wonder it has been hit so much; it's awesome. Want to first say I am glad u are feeling better enough to peck at your computer keys awhile...continue your recovery! Feel better SOON! Also, appreciate your tho'ts on my Scotland piece. Every time there is a new contest I have to read about new topics...this one was fun...yes, those fellas were UNICORNS. Happy Monday! Gwendolen

A great poem for Nette's contest. She sees many gorgeous sunsets in the Philippines; this will certainly stir her passion for them even more. I am inspired by resurrection's hope...An Easter sky where the colors kiss and evoke goosebumps..nice poem for this a.m. :) Gwendolen

Wow Carolyn - subtle use of natures reference point to bring home divine thought. Thanks for commenting on my work,' I am bored with Poetrysoup'. Idea is to provoke positive thoughts for strengthening Poetrysoup. I believe in expression, hurting anyone is not the intention. I have got too much luv & support from few Premium Members. Luv & best wishes always.Thnx for supporting my views - Hitendra Mehta

what a wonderful way to combine Easter with the contest, CArolyn. This one is sure to do well. And certainly fits the theme of touch/touched by CHrist's love!

You must be so lucky living where you can see the sunset's reflection on the sea... i miss that, but it is in my distant plans to settle around the Indian Ocean or Lake Victoria. thinking of those beautiful sunsets in the far future gives me goosebumps already... exactly that moment when the sun kisses the ocean, its pure magic! >thanks for fueling my desire for that future Carol... the sunset imagery has really done it for me... i hope Nette feels it too.
