Dark Lights ...collaboration with Zahra

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

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.

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

even in the beautiful and bountiful garden

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**

This takes me on an interesting journey that feels ethereal & fleeting, as the imagery shifts along the way. At first I felt the thorns grabbing tight but then there's a "letting go" flow in mid-poem, only to return to grabbing ensnarement at the end. Could be an analogy for how some relationships evolve . . . *sigh!* Fondly, Margie

Very powerful collaboration.
Quite apt I read it today.
Darkness really is the world just now.
It's like we get drip fed it everyday.
But light will surely shine.
It always does.
