Changes

Changes

A Poem by Einstein Noodle

        
"Changes"
apophonic harps ringing in my ears
I hit the wall of my obsessions
My senses of expression
we just can't hold hummingbirds                                                                                                                                                                                                                            
(Can We?)                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                              
rivers run through  rocks
please don't sing for me     ~         a
plaintive keening
don't tell me  your art                                                                                                                                                                                                                                       
(Show Me)                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                         
alterations to a tailor like a
calico kitten's soft      ~      rough
rouged tongue
don't write those things  for me                                                                                                                                                                                                                           
(i thought my prayers would get me closer)                                                                                                                                                                                                              
Sailor mendicant, hearing the sirens' wailing
finger tips          ~           map tats
trace story lines of mermaids           and
the deep               where fish creatures glow effervescent                                                                                                                                                                                         
(i wish i had not run so fast)                                                                                                                                                                                                                              
may i read your palm?
reel with me
in you          -         swirls
Divine intervention                                                                                                                                                                                                                                             
(there is the Tunnel)                                                                                                                                                                                                                                          
peacocks fanned tail  extravagance
melding pot calamity
great love        the
living of the dead                                                                                                                                                                                                                                               
(There is the Light)                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                     
On Winds and clouds
lithe bodies bound
flights in fancy fandango
i
    i
        i
            i .................

I always have a smile from reading your poetry E. Amazing depth once more and I wish the world could see such skill as yours, remarkable :) There is a process to this piece in my eyes...a layered building up to a completion of recognition, not just a wander through imagery but an actual process, very cleverly executed and articulated. Sometimes dreams and hopes are so fragile they tear along the jagged path on this journey called life but the living on and holding on to faith and acceptance make living a little easier sometimes...life is an art and your art glows brightly in bold metaphor, wonderful E :)

This is tale that takes you away and creates thought.

Can one hold a hummingbird?...
I truly do not have the answer

Ahh and tale as old as time sailors listening to the sirens song only to be lost forever.

We are all bewitched by someone or something in life without intending to be it simply happens

One of your bests! a fine creative piece with your very own personal style, and I must think of "changes" as the changes we made to our poems too, not only the changes in life from birth, death to the rebirth, and how we must flow with them not to resist them, still I dive here into a world of creation and inspiration, as writers with our limitless imagination we can hold and catch a "hummingbird" even if in reality we can not, and that's exactly the message, You with your neat way brought it to us, that in our world of creation everything is possible, and that's why You are at the end flying with the hummingbirds,

i

so the answer we maybe not able to catch them, but we CAN be them and fly with them. magnificent one Mr. E.

ok E. I had to read this one a couple of times. Think I will be pondering this one for a while. Your writing is extraordinary and riveting filled with mounds of depth and boundless imagination. You have a wonderful gift. Not sure exactly what your poem is saying, but what a ride it took me on. The feel of movement through life. Somewhere on the spectrum between happiness and grief in times. Life an ever changing growth usually through hardship. And love and relationships are the dance that make it all worthwhile. It is an absolute pleasure to read your work. Makes me think, wonder, feel and smile too.
