Hydroplane

Hydroplane

A Poem by Alexa Apothic Red

As my car hydroplaned
I watched in mesmerizing
Slow motion wonder
At the might of that water
That sprayed up so elegantly
In front of my headlights
I was right there
Tumbling within
The street's waterfall
Imagining the cascade of your love
Spilling all around me
And I-gliding down avenues
Not to decant into drains
But rather to be again sprayed
And splayed there
By yet another car's
Encounter in our hydroplane

You have an impressive knack of turning the most mundane circumstances - whether it's sitting around a mere fire or driving through a torrential downpour - into something so lovely, so poetic, so mystical that simply by your words you prove that love is real, and it exists all around......you just need to look. Well done! Much enjoyed this one.

Unlike the other reviewers, I read something different than or maybe in addition to passion and love. Perhaps a loss of control ("tumbling") and disorientation or loss of clarity ("water... "in front of my headlights"). Also, the most intriguing part came at the end, the last two lines... "By yet another car's encounter in our hydroplane." Perhaps a disruption, an intrusion into the moment, the experience. Not sure. Maybe I'm reading too deeply. Still, another impressive, original work.
