tulle-tossed


tulle-tossed

this misty whirl beyond the silence of no-where flaming to the throbbing fullness of everywhered everything - this dance of tulle - tossed with the flick of a celestial wrist- to reveal - infants blinking born - lovers walking wedded in bliss - flick - glowing rippling muscled health - flick - a caress o'er the clenched cheek in pain - flick the faded blossom of youth yellowing in the eye - again - flick - floating at the caverned head of what we imagine as a final journey - the tulle falls and lifts over the cerulean marble spinning - dotted people speak human-talk kind and heinous - flick - war and murder begin in a place of mind and deed incomprehensible and end rebuilding a way back again - and the tulle lifts and falls again and again and again in this misty place - this misty whirl - this misty mystic magic  - 
graceful, stumbling, leaping, ailing, blossoming, fading, phantasmic
dance of tulle tossed

  3. Oh I feel a lightness here.. is the tulle in reality that morning mist raising from the morning meadows or something else?.. it can be so much.

  4. the twist and turn of the poem is a reminder that despite of the grace, something can snap it leading to a roar or chaos. interesting form in a continuous line

  5. Life is magic. Sadly most of us don't really appreciate it. We are great users and ignore those clicking seconds and the flicking images in our hopeless foolishness.
    (P.S. You certainly tested your readers using a 4 point serif typeface. My eyes were but 4" from the screen!)

  7. There is a rollicking rhythm here...as if there is a tumbling of moments in a misty shroud...a sense that life is faster than we may first believe...never let it all go by unnoticed...

  10. Very visual, very mobile, with those punctuating flicks. A sweet conceit, that celestial wrist tossing.

  11. life is a complicated magic...i thought of ballet dancers..how they must look serene whilst performing impossibly painful physical tasks...all wrapped up in tulle

  12. The changes are indeed just a flick in the time of the world but we should always remember that ir is our time and should make the world a better place.

  13. I like the piece, but most of all, the first line...

    "this misty whirl beyond the silence of no-where..."

    makes me wonder what's beyond silence, in general.
