Seedlings

Seedlings

A Poem by Einstein Noodle

Exterminate.
forest rainbow leaves, fall and
open thickened skins to winter
brittle arms creak ........ moan
grey red-brown coyote 
tip toe trotting 
another weaving thread 
quick eyes glancing back
                                                                   gone
Solastalgia shackle shaking
shadow tree trunks pin drop silence
coyote pin ball clanging
clinging
ringing 
                                                  "...the bells the bells the bells"
She decanted the best of me.
even a crooked tree 
reaches skyward
moon and brown
muley eyes saccade 
quivering a nightmare
rewilding stubborn as
an outrage 
Outrage 
alluring dark temptations
erase
Erased.

Dear Mr.E, sometimes we don't need to understand all the meanings of the written words, but to dwell and feel, overwhelmingly feel... the rhythm of Your lines stuck in my head, somewhere there You spoke to me of deep loss and deep pain, when I reached this "She decanted the best of me." with the important dot "." of it, I felt a little twinge in my heart, as if I was waiting to read this, for me this was You speaking to, of and for nature as "Your" nature, as if She is Your beloved one, in all the seasons, times, days or nights, You believe in her, and that she can rebirth, always she can.

“Solastalgia”-an important feeling. Encroaching, insidious, danger approaches us all. Your poem stealth-walks across our consciousness E., like the coyotes, the shadow trees- so much gone and going. Yes, we have “decanted” the best from the earth and she trembles in the death-throes of her savage violation. Powerful language, imagery and gun-shot explosions of stark one-word, lines. “Erased”- we soon will be. Profound message, delivered profoundly.

"She decanted the best of me."

"Solastalgia shackles shaking"

I loved reading these lines and feel that they made this piece something special. I especially liked the second line I quoted - I like the imagery it evokes and the light alliteration.
This piece feels as though it has quickly tumbled out of your mind, it felt somehow urgent to me. Nice work

It's like that sometimes - sometimes what you're writing seems to tell you when it's done!
The funny thing about loss is nature has a way of covering it all up! Nice writing Gene. I feel wisdom in this piece from a mind well marinated by life! 😀

Here's the difference between you & me (which I recognize with envy) . . . you sit in a meditative moment & simply observe your mind flow exactly how it comes out . . . on the other hand, I wait until something "sensible" comes out before I feel its poem-worthy. I miss being able to capture the pure randomness of nature & also the act of observing is random, as you have captured it here. Such is the curse of a neat freak *wink! wink!* Fondly, Margie

(((((((((((((((((Margie))))))))))))))))) ;) yep!
The need to feel close to one who has gone....you can feel the person's essence, hear the person, drink in the aura....but you can not hug that person. The feeling of loss is overwhelming here. Beauty of nature is wonderful, but that one special human being is gone and nothing is quite the same. Loved the Hunchback line. E, your poetry runs the gamut and always makes me think. I identify with some part of it always...and that is wonderful. Happy Healthy New Year to you. Lydi**

Einstein Noodle, your imagery is outstanding. I really felt the line "Even a crooked tree reaches skyward."

Although I was not able to figure out the narrative object, I could feel the darkness associated with the pain.

You are truly talented, Einstein and you definitely speak to your readers. Each layer of the onion, referencing your poem, presents us with a different twist of thought. Great job! :-)

I will always take the time to read and review, to the best of my ability, your poetry. :-)
An amazing write dear Einstein Noodle. I feel the deeper message and the story behind. The coyote spirit, the withering and coming of winter, the quivering in nightmarish states, the pin drop silences and so forth. Some can take this literally, others metaphorically. I hope the narrator passed that stage of solastalgia.

Dear Mr E. Happy New Year to you. Your imagery here is sharp, I can see it clearly, and your poetic expression wonderful. I love "brittle arms creak". I could hear those tree limbs. When I read your line "she decanted the best of me", at first it seemed to stand alone, almost out of place, but on reading again, I feel that line is very integral to the whole understanding of the poem. You have used vocabulary which I needed to research, so I have improved my knowledge and I have to say I spotted some excellent alliteration. Lovely stuff Mr E.
