Trimmed Roots

Trimmed Roots

A Poem by Enigma
"

Experimental.

"
Here, where I stand
My toes do not grow roots
Nor do fingers branch out to fondle a stray cloud
Apocalyptic delays
But only a stone's throw away
Beyond that last mile my feet wished to tread
My mind sings in some weird claustrophobic notes
Would reach out, if I could
And cast in stone, these songs
That I sing and strive to forget
My only legacy to Gaia

This is some powerful imagery. I felt so close to all that I need and the desperation
to have my needs met was overwhelming. I really admire how this poem is so personal
yet is delivered on such a grand scale in the end. Brilliant work.

This is beautiful and surreal- it also shows the pervasiveness of nature in our every day lives.

This filled me with a sense of loneliness, not necessarily wanting a romantic entanglement, but a connection to something or someone. This is well written and, I think. A universal feeling.

The imagery is really strong. I feel as if this in someone drowning and barely staying afloat.
