Iowa Temple

A Poem by Waconda Springs
"

The Fewtch

"
I borrowed a guitar
from the deaf lady's daughter
carried it
on my back felt
the warmth about
the waist of the blonde

Stairs sunk
like rising water
like a sunset backwards
rises
massive spires curves like gold brick rainbows and blues

I saw her
and saw what

I wanted to see

the curves and lace

loved best stanza two, especially the last line "massive spires curves like gold brick rainbows and blues"
and the visuals the backwards sunset gave, like the sun rising like a phoenix from the waves, very impressive and expressive.

this was so abstract, and yet not, I loved it. so beautiful. your voice could not be replicated if someone tried.

I loved that "stairs sunk like rising water" - damn - I wish I'd written that W.S.
I could see this raising a roof at a poetry/coffee shop. Magical.

you are still my favorite poet.

Beautiful imagery. You've made a great point, we see what we want to see in something or someone. Perception and interpretation are uniquely our own. I love the backwards sunset lines.
