Clairvoyant

A Poem by Emily B
"

Written for the Magritte contest

"

small space
curled tightly
walls will crumble
wings will unfurl
what once was dormant


waiting


will               fly                  away


    air                           light                    wings


merrily                      singing


melodic                notes              perched             on              vision

The gravity of your piece really is surprising. It is more so considering the simplicity of the words you use. I really do think that you are talented. You are a magician with the ability to turn paper airplanes into carrier ships ready to rescue soldiers from the war. Imagine what you can do when your poetic voice meets metal.

You can probably end poverty as we know it.

WoW This reminds me of me in like highschool when I got star reported for writing a poem called Split:P

Ouuuu I feel like I am in a candy store.

Okay, anyways enough with my OCD. Here we go dissecting your poem of awesomeness.

THEMES

1. Claustrophobia
2. Triangles
3. Ominous

Reminds me of the Novel, "House of Leaves," by Mark Danielewski.

Very Beautiful, Emily Burns

What's old is new again... Ms. Emily displays one of her lovely spring blooms! Soooo pretty; love that tinkle and color. Such a happy little thing, spinning and twirling in the fresh breeze and sunshine. A winner IMHO. ^_^

thats what i love most about poems... we can make it crazy as we are without limitations from our own imaginations just to stick with our notions to conquer our emotions, now i'm in motion that i actually function as i write this with passion. LOL:)

Clairvoyant is a liberating piece of poetic imagination and form that leaves us feeling elevated and renovated.

Loved the arrangement ..like floating from it's cocoon. Emerging.. So tight then light and airy.. so simplistically beautiful...reminds me of a feather pillow bursting

quite alot going on here, the first 6 lines are the "tight space", confined, imprisioned. in the context of flight and wings, this part of the poem is "egg" and the rest is birth and life, voice and freedom.

but also, from top to bottom, this pyramid is impossible architecture, the tight and confined "cap" is balanced on thin air, like concrete blocks lifted and suspended by airy song. you defy gravity emily, you really do. i really enjoyed reading this

The beautiful vision of a bird breaking free of its egg and grwoing wide to soar in the Heavens :) I like how the text spreads out as it moves down; sort of gives the impression of wings unfurling as the wind lifts them up and the bird rides the currents
