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. :-)

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.

Thanks ted I actually like the tone of this tune for once:/
The coincidence: I click on this, to read it for the first time this morning, while "Tangled up in Blue" by Bob Dylan is streaming. I about had an orgasm when I got to your black-and-blue ending. This is lightyears beyond anything I've read of yours. This is truly inspired. I love this poem & will read it more. I am fascinated with the difference in how a person experiences light in the country, as compared to light in the city -- vastly different! I totally get the interplay of light & feeling as tho surrounded by a teeming city yet also with a melancholy aloneness that isn't altogether unwelcome. So many more subtleties, but I'll leave it here. This is awesome writing! (((HUGS))) Fondly, Margie

As ever you create another world of words for readers to adventure, Robert! Aren't we all Lightbenders every time we in- or exhale. We walk and lie in a self encasing ligh, creating our own dark shadows even though existing in individual auras? Your writing encapsulate what i mean, the pouring of meanings, twisting, turning and all.. charging up our own power, id only to store it. To fight or love another day... perhaps?

The last two lines ring. Determination to live among the light things regardless of the dark that tries to close in around us.

It’s an excellent echo. The music of that can keep you cycling back to the light for sure. It does feel very musical. The rhymes bouncing off of one another and circling around to close the light around the dark.

Light warriors need a theme to lead the charge. A good starting place here. The rhythm of the words is infectious.

"There is a crack in everything. That's how the light gets in." Wasn't it Leonard Cohen that quoted that? It came to mind as soon as I started reading this.

Wow, Robert. Is that really you? It looks like you! You know what they say, "if it looks like a duck and it walks like a duck, it's a duck"! Great picture!

And it's a scientific fact that light bends as suggested by Einstein. But I must say Bunny, he would never have understood it in the way you put it in this piece!!! And, I do like that picture of a real live lightbender! All the best my Pittsburgh friend.
