Ash Glazed Embers

Ash Glazed Embers

A Poem by Einstein Noodle


Ash Glazed Embers



Gaze into the ashes glow
so many thing to see.
Worlds in the making
dragons          you and me.

I read her like a poet,
black cherry painted lips.
Sun lite glowing purple,
slowing time around her hips.

The essence of enrapturing;
eruption without will.
Encapsulating moments
there upon the sill.

A dancing ballerina,
frozen flowers in a vase,
a picture worth a thousand words
spills off and fills the space.

Gazing deep into the embers,
after blazing burns;
branding smoke and memory;
embedding mine to hers.

Gazing ashes, blinding, quite likely, possibly as a result of the metaphorical burning of something past, where something went wrong to need fire to end. Yet, through it, your speaker meets the girl who intrigues them, growing along with her as the stanzas go on until it's implied that a life has been lived with the fair lady, through the pictures worth a thousand words and the flowers in the vase, and the blending smoke and memory. A moment: birthed from the ashes of new beginnings that led to your speaker's relationship with a girl. Well done.

Watch out for the gravitational pull of those hips! They can change the tidal ways of our lives.

The hotter the fire, the more likely we are to become denature, and conform to whatever the shape the smith dictates. Bending into something that we were not, but oh how good conformity of this nature can feel.

This piece has so much possibility for interpretation, and to each reader their own. Nice job E.

First up, nice pic :) I love the gentle romantic tone to this poem, and you use some beautiful images, particularly in the second stanza. A thoughtful ending too. I almost wondered if this was a reconnecting to an old flame. I hope those embers never fade out. Penny :)

"A picture can stop time,
into silhouettes of exotic dimensions,
brilliant brush strokes of appreciation,
for the beauty the picture hides,
a toast to the lady with the pastel smile."
This is my tribute poem for you. I wasnot able to appreciate this one enough, so I wrote this poem as a tribute instead.

in my favourites!!:))
