I am running nude through the field
with my bare feet enjoying every sensual
blade of grass that has been given to me
and grown by our mother whom we neglect.
The song grows intense in the air as the birds
praise the coming of the goddess who
sits on the golden throne with her
pink hues giving her surprise party away
The air is as pure as that before the year 1700
and I breathe it in and feel every molecule
heal me and make me whole and impregnate
my skin and my mind and I know all is good.
This feeling surrounds me, and it is you
and for the first time in so long I can feel
the goodness of life and the wellbeing of
my disastrous mind and I am loose.
| this makes me want to get outside, in the middle of nowhere, away from it all, and soak it in. ah how you captured my spirit. life is so stressful as we all revolve around material possessions. nature may very well be the only thing that can make us feel so "one". this was amazing, definitely a favorite. thank you.|

There are a couple things: You've set up the nude image in the first line, and therefore maybe don't need a barefoot image in the second, as it's implied.
'intense' in the first line of the second stanza is somewhat of a heavier word, and brought down the level of elation you were building.
In the third stanza, why 1700 in particular? would 18th century work as well, without the specific reference? I wanted to think there was something special about THAT year.
Really tight ending, where the wrapping feeling is the 'You."
Thanks for sharing!

It is so good to see someone else who can understand the beauty of the world and the beauty of all nature and how it truefully brings love
It is so sad that we are destroying gods greatest gift of all
I really really liked this

I feel the sheer joy of such reprieve to be who I am and love it, as in each line you wrote. The images were just right and the wording was very good. The flow was not exact, but that added to the free feeling really. This was a wonderful to read.|

The wording is nice because it's so imaginary. It was brief and I like that because I think poems like these don't have to be long. or people ll get bored. The last stanza was a good end.

It must be wonderful indeed to have someone who makes you feel this way.
Your description of everything was superb. And your happiness felt so profoundly that I just want to get up and dance after reading it. LOL.
