Warm Gentle Breeze

Warm Gentle Breeze

A Poem by Einstein Noodle

Warm Gentle Breeze
not warm like muffins
fresh from the steaming oven
tanned, domed caps
more as an infant's breath; close
as taste.
not gentle like downy feathers, nor
mother's soft skin touch, nor as
aubergine dew drops leave traces; but
more as memories conjure dreams un-
awakened and smiling bubbles from the well.
breezes not like those first in Spring from
the south; nor those rare in late Fall 
sixty degrees and lemon chiffon
but like in facing sightless
weight is lifted from shoulders; tension from necks
melting directly into a 
warm gentle breeze

oh gosh I know that breeze ... its like the closing your eyes and feeling the universe kiss your cheeks ... I love that moment of melting between me and the rest of reality ... You know when I was in Kyoto, Japan, I was in a Zen temple with a friend of mine and unusually this Zen temple which is usually very busy was momentarily quiet. I sat on the wooden verandah looking out onto the famous zen garden and closed my eyes and that breeze you talk of above, well that's what I felt as time stood still and I gathered up all of my senses to keep that tiny moment with me forever ... ahh ... and wen I close my eyes right now, it's there and it holds that little piece of magic that connects us all.

Thank you for taking me back there ... X

This piece has an ethereal feel to it. I like how your descriptions melt into one another and capture how it feels to transcend the earth ... it's a feeling that goes beyond ordinary pleasure. This reminded me of Edgar Poe's saying that "Beauty is the province of every poem." The artwork was enthralling too.

A very visual and colourful poem. In a word entrancing. I love the flow and the way certain phrases can bring whole a complete atmosphere to me the reader.

LOVE your art. Love your construction of "this, not that" (interesting juxtapositions & contrasts). This is one of your poems that I can best relate to & understand & follow with ease. I am jealous of all your different ways to SHOW instead of tell, with so many unusual & well-stated examples. It amazes me to see such uninhibited ways of seeing & describing.

No warm breezes here, just close to 2 foot of snow and deer flocking to the feeders for apples, corn and hay. AK is on your profile, where do you live in that warmth? Valentine

I know it's Christmas time and all...a bit nippy here. I feel your reference to fall sixty degrees and lemon chiffon.😋BUT, I could so join in on one of those garden days, throwing a blanket out on the ground. Gathering up some cheese and wine. Soaking in the gentle breeze. Smiling a sun soaked dream..... ty for warming my spirit today!!!!
