Metanoia

Metanoia

A Poem by Doodley
"

Reborn.

"
I caught a lonely, falling tear as it escaped my weeping eye,

And placed it on the fiery tail of a comet passing by;

To be borne aloft the velvet nights of endless galaxies,

A tiny particle of my own traversing cosmic seas;

And when that tear on journey's end returned in fortuitous style,

It watered the grooves of my grieving face and upon there bloomed a smile.

A very simple sextet. Just maintaining the writing rage.

Any comments greatly appreciated.

I had to look up the title word, which is an intriguing word & perfectly chosen. For such a short poem, I felt like I was taken on a long journey of wisdom & clarification. Your rhymes & rhythm work well. I'm very impressed by the overall meaning here, which shows immense imagination blended with a focused purpose of conveying something thought-provoking. This might be one of the best I've read of yours.

I think this is a wonderful poem in the way that you have gone from tears to a smile at the end. again, you do that wonderful rhyme and keeping in a form. I appreciate such things, because I have no talent for it.

I shoe this poem because of the title. I know of a band with a similar title

Always a pleasure!
A great concept here written boldly and with a ethereal theme. We often look elsewhere for the answer to our own happiness. For some it is enlightenment through a belief such as religion, however any 'oia' ended word to me signals some form of mental distortion rather than reality and 'groundedness'.

Gives me a second look.
The title of this piece certainly matches the way it makes me feel . . . I thought the descriptions were ethereal . . . it's like they danced across the screen. I like how you've given an inspirational message in a poignant way -- it doesn't sound cliche like a lot of inspirational poems I read on here. The contrast between the first and last lines was nice too; it uniquely illustrated how sorrow can turn into happiness. Also, the descriptions in the last line were very nice . . . I like how you used the word "bloom" as opposed to a neutral word like "came" or "formed" . . . the word "bloomed" has a beauty and radiance about it, just like the poem as a whole.

Thanks for sharing this.

Knocked the ball out of the park again, Doodley.. This one is metered nicely and has a mythical air to it. It feels like a slow, transformimg journey that happened somehow in the blink of six lines. What a deep place you went with this tiny little tear! Keep it up!
