This is one of the most thoughtfull andd affirming poems i have read recently i love the metaphor and the thought of you being inspired by the tangled treelights. i love the scale of your imagery ( does that make sense?) from floor-bound to stars from domestic to univeresal
and i love the last line ''So she rests and gleams where she is..'' it is a very warm poem and i can't offer any improvement ...i don't think it needs any
This is lovely :) ...and i second everything that lmz wrote :)) this is very humble and very sweet and i loved the metaphor you used..the only line that gave me trouble was the second..something doesnt read quite right...
This is a lovely poem. This says so much in the way of self-esteem and confidence. She doesnt need to be an attention seeker or stand out in a crowd. She is happy and content just being where and who she is. She is thankful for what she has and is comfortable wearing her own shoes. Not out to impress anyone as she has already impressed the most important person...herself. Very strong and solid poem. I love the metaphor you have used here. Nice work. Take care.
Wow Chrystine, this was amazing. I get the feeling of a person who knows they are a shining bright light yet are humble and content enough with themselves that they need not flaunt that to the world or put it on display...because the greater glory will come at the end and be an awe inspiring legacy. But until that time this person will glow and gleam like you say. Nice stuff...I think this was grrrrr8!
