Lightbender

Lightbender

A Poem by Robert Trakofler (Bad Bunny)
"

Just Playing with light, words and time

"

__Lightbender__

 

There’s a place

Down yon

where lights fade

to dawn

in those shades

sights drawn

Heart Beats play

my throng

Palpitate

my longs

Casts cascade

My song

 

And the chains

Of their reins

And the pain

Of their feign

and constrain

Of their vain

to tear stains

won’t remain

 

In this place

the plea

Resonates

to the

hollow space;

that screams

hungers aches

of need

for this grace

I’ll bleed

To etch trace

Sights seen

 

Bend dark hues

To sky views

Black and blue

Blush suffuse

Shade refuse

bright imbues

dash abuse

to bemuse

 

in this space you will find me

I think we are all lightbenders. We have to be. Otherwise, I don't know how we'd survive. The hard knocks that knock us down would keep us down if we didn't get up. The darkness would impale us with its hopelessness if we didn't search for the light. We must shape shift the darkness into light. Heck! We are the light! This is well written, Robert. :-)

Throwing a bunch of forced rhymes on a page doesn't work, but when it is done with great intent, rhythm, and "vision" it lifts us all up. This reads like an awesome literary landslide. Great last line there. It's like an exclamation point to the poetic space you were inhabiting. Great stuff. Thanks for the groovy pic also.

Robert, as with so much of your extraordinary poetry, I hear music. Maybe a sassy jazz or contemporary blues song in a classy club, though I know these thoughts and poems usually come together in solitude, when we have the time and space to reflect and hurt, seeing the light and allowing it to color us in those brilliant hues, though sometimes cold. You've expressed so much color and rhythm in this work. Awesome pic, too!

Love that great pic of you Bunny, radiant and smiling. Giving off light. Your four stanza really spoke to me. Yes we have to create our own light become Lighbenders to drive away the darkness of life. Your alliteration in this write and your musicality and rhythm shine through. Always a pleasure to read you.

Superb as always. I particularly enjoy verses 1,3 & 4. Again there is that flow; tidelike and soft throughout.
You alliterative percussive style fits so perfectly. At the risk of gushing this is one of my favourites of yours.
There are many layers to the light and this poem.

thanks ken that picture you sent me sorta looked like bent light to me that space between the two
A fascinating play of words here Bunny. I read the poem more than once and each time it seemed to throw up different images and meanings. A lovely play of light and shade intertwined with heart-lifting emotions.

I see you in your alliterations, in your perceptions and most of all in your opulent originality and benevolence. It is always a joy to see you, Robert. And these bewitchingly confected stanzas are an example of your sophistication.

Bend more light my friend, you do it well. There is definitely a great rhythm to this piece ... a musicality if you will that 'resonates to the hollow space' and taps into the soul.

Well written friend.
