Alone

Alone

A Poem by Einstein Noodle
"

do take the time to watch the dance video ..it is so cool...says i! ;)

"
 Peering
The pair pirouettes on
                                  the pier.
The lightning wasn't quite right
             
they
couldn't quite focus on point.
I am not sure what happened to them.
They just kept spinning 
on their own
in the mist.
                      Alone

dear Gene... I promise I will watch the Video...
but just now I must return to sleep before the Sun rises...
not wishing to wake Roger who sleeps lightly. Sometimes I am a Night Owl.
By the way... being alone is not Cool.... but then hopefully
Beauregard will "bark" with you. The Video looks like a real sweet Ballet.
The "still" photo reminds me of when My daughter learned Ballet at age four.
gently, Pat

E.
You clearly captured the essence surrounding this dance in this video with your words and the dance itself so in effect motion is captured by the stillness of words. Well done

Maybe they were happy spinning their way into the netherworld. Together. Alone. I don't know. Facing the end with a great partner, even if deluded, is a beautiful thing. Another great poem. So simple and elegant. Cheers. CD

was the video an inspiration? because i can see that!
this is a very interesting story, made me think. i'd say it could be interpreted a number of ways. they could be people stuck in a cycle/the past, people who are lost trying to find themselves, they could be ghosts..
i love how you left the word "they" (line 5) by itself, it emphasizes the fact that they're alone. very creative!

a complete story in such a small space, I hear a lone harp bringing them into focus, until in silence we stare at an empty pier.
