Nestled Nostalgia

Nestled Nostalgia

A Poem by Poppy Ruth Silver

Something about the cello
lingers over my backbone
whirlpools emotion

Downfall occurs
as soon as I yearn
what I could have been

Cello reminds me of such loss
age defies dreams
in nostalgic tones

If my words 
are never to resonate 
in this strange land

I will remember 
the echo of cello
alive and mutated 

Along my backbone
nestled between burdens 
in whirlpools of emotion

Beautiful photo and amazing words.
"Along my backbone
nestled between burdens
in whirlpools of emotion"

I love listening to the violin and deep and rich sounds...

I have never reviewed your writing, though I have seen your name throughout the Cafe. I'm glad I finally got a chance to take a look at your work. The haunting sounds of the cello, especially the Bach suites, bring bittersweet memories to my mind, even if I have been in the best of moods. This piece, just by mentioning this most contemplative of instruments, puts me in state of mind where all your other words fall into a perfect rhythm. The cello, as you describe it, could be the "backbone" of melancholy. This is a beautiful piece! I enjoyed it very much... JKB

This piece began to haunt me even before I finished it.
It siphons away the strength in ones legs.

The cello is a perfect vehicle for this lovely poem. It has such a haunting quality it can send chills down the spine.

Loved this. Beccy.

The word Cello evokes and brings the sound of it alive in cold halls and warm summer rooms. I like your sad and emotional incision into this part of a memory you have had
