Thirst Of A Human Touch

Thirst Of A Human Touch short poem

Photo by callocx

I wandered in the woods –
No humans around.
No feelings , no worries, no cries and laughter,
Only the chirping of Birds,
Howling of Jackals, buzzing of Bees heard around.
The Trees were bouncing in the wind-
The cool breeze touched my face and body,
The leaves, shaken in the wind, fell on my head,
I felt happy,I enjoyed the time in the woods,
I am away from all the worries of the world.
I am safe here-I thought.
But still lacking something.
Lack of a human touch.

This is the true nature of human mind.

It seems that you were a high school teacher…blessed are the ones who studied under you…..under somebody who knows the magic and healing power of human touch.……

Randall Smith

I really liked this but I felt the loneliness and the want to share the warmth of the woods with. A very enjoyable read.


I did enjoy reading your poem but have never felt the need for human touch when in touch with mother nature. The peace from worries she gives is just how your lovely poem portrays

Viswas Menon

Wonderful poem…..the human touch can do wonders as well as harm to not only nature but also to human,,,,,the nature you described so nicely when touched by a good human hand can make it bloom …but when touched by the greedy hand can destroy its beauty….

…i like the way you have phrased the events in nature ….”Trees Bouncing in the wind”….very imaginative …

please keep writing and sharing…


Human touch .. Definitely as imp if not more than nature … Beautifully worded!

Akhtar Jawad

A beautiful poem. Yes man is a social animal. I liked the use of word touch instead of sight. In fact all our senses are touches. One may be blind, deaf or dumb but a touch he can feel.

Laya Sarath

So wonderful mam..With the fading humanity, the world needs human touch always to move on ..loved the poem so very much… 🙂

I just wandered round the woods forgetting that I leave away from the woods until i read your last line. Thanks for taking me to a beautiful journey in forest. truly a moving poem indeed


So true, even the quiet is not perfect and lacking.

Paulo Sérgio Costa

Beautiful poem! Short, sweet, and I felt as if I got an unexpected emotional punch in the end. Love it!

Geeta Varma

Yes. I think I too feel the same. Nice poem.

Akhtar Jawad

A human touch or otherwise need of another human being is the supreme need. even paradise is a hell if there is no human companion.


Ah a wonderful poem of being at peace in quiet in the woods but then yes we would miss the human touch. But it is poetic and sounds great how u describe the imagery for a moment. Kudos.

I’m a newbie here, Pleez do review/comment my first poem here too, I like meeting poem pals, their thoughts, and to know if my poem is easily understood as intended.

We live in a world full of blindness, Everybody is looking, But yet lacking kindness, Ignorance has made us all crazy and mindless, Nobody willing to stand up Instead acting spineless, Evil has spread And started to become timeless, People

The once clean and pure waters of the ocean, Pure, What does that even mean? Where whales, dolphins, fish swam freely, With the course of nature and life. No interference by humans. The ocean is as beautiful as wild animals

Human Lab

Human Lab short poem

Half-buried in a mud pit, a polluter bares all, body and soul. Hands bound, ready to be stoned to death. A god was going to kill a god. A dense judgement of planet green of an unreliable sun scribbling a
