Dark Lights ...collaboration with Zahra

A Poem by Einstein Noodle

Dark Lights

Roses  - beauty entangled
with mortality
a promise of wrath and passion both

thorns project
 a reminiscence of woe 
holding on faithfully
to all the moments of rapture

piercing hands bleeding red

her jewelry are vines and moss
swaying in breezes moving 

where does evil come from?

her hips 
along the river's bending
surface waters rich skimmed with 
milk and midden
blurring the deep and powerful
meant to grab, hold and force into
darkness below the surface  

Fountains 
- her endless grace flowing,
taking away the spirits of soil and leaves
to a dream of rebirth

pools below gather beasts
choosing  frenzy but
one swims ....
family sinking deep in the bed load

 cobra hiss spitting
 bob weaving and
caught in the swaying
we ....

boughs of iron oak
bending breezes 
web snaring ...
catching 
holding

Featured Review

they could have been so calm, so serene---but then there was the Garden...the tree of knowledge---and the reality of life afterward...
life is thorns and passion, love and hate, sweet nectar and poison...all at once---
carefree left when God said "everybody out of the pool"
we all need to find the perfect fig leaf so we can cover just enough of ourselves to keep our dignity through life.

an interesting piece, the mystery of roses, or the mystery of women, at least this what I got from it too, it can be the symbol of divine beauty and it can turn into evil if You hurt her, ( make sure You don't bother Your woman Mr.E lol), the bright happy lights, turns into dark angry ones, the deep feminine touch is felt through Your poem, thank You both of You.

The imagery is vast and lush, the truth of what we are echoed in every line. It is the battle royale in perfectly poetic English. Loved this piece!

spot on Fran! thank you for taking time and for leaving your review .. means a lot :)
E.
This is eloquently composed with attention to beauty and desire...beauty is a wonderful grace but desire is a thorn on every rose. If the mind, appreciating beauty, leaves it there for all to see...if it fills each thought with sharing and caring, the rose will remain. But the hand that reaches forth to pluck and own, to deprive and horde in jealous desire...will only be left with wounds from thorns and a flower that withers. That's what I took away from this. Lovely thoughts.

The madness of love and of beauty. The dark and the light. The opposites of feeling and seeing.
Intelligent and quite frankly lovely.

The story of a relationship from sweet start to cruel finish? Life is filled with good and bad. We have to concentrate on the good....and sometimes search for it in dark corners! The imagery is stunning. Not sure who Zahra is, but the two of you have blended your ink wonderfully. Lydi**
