Touch (Part 1) Poetry

Touch by hand the subtle things

Touch the child with new born skin

Touch the water in rock pools still

Touch the snow – white frozen chill

~~~~~~~~~~~

Touch the bark of trees at dark

Touch the glass and leave your mark

Touch the animal that makes you shiver

Touch the stones in the rippling river

~~~~~~~~~~~

Touch the pen so you may write

Touch the pillow you sleep on at night

Touch the cheek of those who blush

Touch the person whose heart is crushed

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Touch the grass in paddocks green

Touch the nuts of cooked praline

Touch the dust of cooled down ashes

Touch the steel of newly ground axes

~~~~~~~~~~~

Touch the snail shell after a rainy day

Touch the old wood that built an archway

Touch the covers that warm you each night

Touch the wrongs to make them right

~~~~~~~~~~~

Touch the water that flows from a tap

Touch the twigs and make them snap

Touch the fabric of clothes that you wear

Touch the heart of friends to show you care

~~~~~~~~~~~

Touch the old photos and reminisce

Touch the lips that you have kissed

Touch the book with the faded pages

Touch the one you will love for ages

Touch…a simple thing we sometimes take for granted…touch…sometimes we feel but do we ever touch

  1. Aye ….touch is so important. To feel … in the literal sense …. brings us into contact …. and we learn. We understand. We empathize. It helps make us part of the world….and of each other.

    Touch my own skin …. and feel the slightest motion to feel.
    Touch the scar upon my back … and feel that the precociousness of life.
    Touch my computer screen … and feel the glass … and warmth … and think of my friends beyond it.
    Touch the chest of your Mr. S … and touch his heart …
