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 :)

I had to read this one a few times. I actually do not know much Bowie but the poem is phenomenal. I love the line where you say "please do not sing for me." I feel like this a lot. Sometimes I just want to be left alone.

Bowie sure was ahead of his time.
Strange thing, change, we know it has to happen, though sometimes it happens without us knowing.
I suppose though, this year is the real change for the world. I suppose in a way, this is world war 3, and at the moment the virus is winning. We'll get over it, and change will happen again. Maybe even a fandango to boot.

You too, Einstein, onwards and upwards.
This pleases me very much says i! Going into my favorites says i! It reminds me of those girls and guys that say " don't come any closer, why aren't you closer?" use the corresponding face for the corresponding emotion (Meg in Movie French Kiss) They don't but maybe they do.. no means no, yes means yes. :P pffft

well overdue, my apologies.. same to you !
No wonder you are called the Einstein. You might have to write the formula in physics terms sir( The only constant is change ).
I can never get enough of your writes and constant wisdom. Change happens indeed in small increments or sudden bursts. Change can be good or bad depending on intent and circumstance. There is change within and change without. There is a natural change and a forced one. I love how you you go down the list and highlight these things.
Long live the pen of Einstein.

You are welcome sir. Same to you.
Complex depths in this one from a poet at the height. I can see the growing in this Gene. The heights and layers in which you develop your art and then it encourages me to sift for fine meanings. Beautifully written dear friend. Something for me to chew over for many a long time. I will get back to you with some of my discoveries. This is a walk through feelings.

I will fandango through this poem more than once, that is for sure. A multi layered gem, this one is. Change is the one constant in our lives, but lately the changes are thrown at us far too quickly. The images you create with your words are spectacular, E. Show me, don't tell me....you have shown us once again you are a skilled poet! Lydi**

thank you so much Lydia! truly ... thank you
For my simplistic mind, I see a world where change is difficult, in a dark world, but I also see a tunnel and there is light at the end of it....( I’m sure this is completely off base!)
