"Mushroom Clouds in Magic Land" IN COLLABORATION WITH FRIEDA

A Poem by Einstein Noodle
"

i am missing Ms. Frieda and decided to re-post this poem which we did together .. i am so angry how one very nasty person was able to drive her from the Cafe :(

"
Mushroom Clouds in Magic Land

Tapped upon a mushroom cap's fancy,
      to see if the rabbit hole was rumor
curiouser and curiouser
     about the unimaginable avenue,

She opens my mind and
fear grips my colors
from the hinterland .....                   tremors
wink    
           and blink   
                              and nod

As I sat upon my newfangled gumption
   common sense took a recess,
 spoke in rhyme to the tune of absurd
     to my surprise, the scaramouch    
                 of a head talked back

my birthing in darkness
          musk and dank scent
knocks        my shroom
head explodes
            collide's scope intense

in his elegant persuasion,
made a date for half past daft
took me on a dip of a mystical carpet trip
 alas,  we've lived happily ever after
upon a prime floating island in a cloud

clouds of words
spilling like rough gouged stones in
tumbler's majestic insane
forever now i
 

re-pronounce her name



beginning and



end... ;)

What a superb collaboration from you and dear, dear Frieda = yours are minds that walk the same space.. perhaps!

There's so much in this piece, the colour and highlights take the reader into a world of bewilderingly spaced.out somewhere. The phrasing you've used is another language, a magic not to be translated - and who would want to do that...all of us!

Lewis Carrol would undoubtedly want to join the two of you in another collab, happily sharing his enlightenment via any means - even holding the breath and flying off and away with the daisies. . Brava and brava again.. Loved this. Great musical accompaniment, by the way... ..

That’s awful that she was driven from the Cafe! I’m so sorry about that! Poetry and writing is such a personal thing, and I’ve had my share of harsh, but fair reviews that hurt enough, so I can only imagine what intent cruelty would be like. But your poetry together, it works wonders. Your writing your entire, green, green world together, and it’s beautiful, colorful and imaginative! It’s taking you on an adventure as you read it, almost like I’m watching a movie! That’s how much vivid imagery you were able to fit here and I adored it and it’s all put together and flows so, so well. Thank you for giving me a burst of inspiration and chipping away that writers block I’ve been having, and you and Frieda writing together, you create a goldmine of strong words and beautiful storytelling.

WOW now that I watched the video Mushroom Cloud (Which I love) I can match your magnificent poetry of St. Elsewhere, the magic, the mind opening to new dimensions; there is so much imagery in this poem, I feel like I'm there in the dark void. Really good, music and dance too.
Best,
Betty

This is a magical poem. Takes the reader on a mystical trip trying to make their own view of how this land of mushrooms clouds could be like.. An impression of awe and beauty that exceeds common sense. It is unfortunate to hear about her departure.

Very nice. And so sorry to hear about Freda. Yes, people can be so cruel. And poetry is such a personal, intimate thing that for many, nasty criticism can hurt so deeply. I've received my own share of such criticism, but fortunately, I have a very thick skin.

Now as to the poem's execution and content. This is brilliantly woven together. I love the many Alice in Wonderland references and how you've turned them to personal, internals references and meaning. Very nicely done. High marks.

good morning Mr. Noodle.. I am so glad you still have this piece featured.. perhaps it is even more poignant today when "cancel" has become a "culture." I wonder how many other beautiful thoughts might have been shared..

What a super cool poem!! Being a huge fan of Alice, I can appreciate this so very much! I don't know the history of the other author, but I would say that had I not known this was a collaboration, it moved together with great fluidity and fun. From the title right down to the layout on the page, nicely done, E (and Frieda)!!
I am in awe of the writer's on this site. So many great people. Yes, I, too, know some greats that have come and gone, but these words live on. And fond memories shall be with you always!

More than 8,000 views! I feel like you don't need me to tell you that this is an amazing poem, but it's an amazing poem. Pages of comments, no doubt recollecting how you subtly reference items in our collective subconscious, Lewis Carroll would be proud. Never met Frieda but mad props to anyone whose hands helped craft these words.

This was written with superb imagination. It took me there (drew me in with a terrific first line)out of thought and landed me into a fanciful spirit. This poem was an absolute pleasure to read. It made smile. Brilliantly done.
