Well, Severn...THIS IS GREAT IN THE WORDS USED but I'm having trouble deciphering...
There are some poems, you just read and get the story. Some, are a bit more heavy with symbolism, and I find them so tasty. Some poems are way out there in left field and you wonder what the poet was thinking (if at all) when composing such a thing. THIS poem, you have written, intrigues me. I have read it 3 times...and each time has left me with an different, but same, feeling. In poems where I have to dig into ME a little to understand them, I surely have a process to help, as I'm sure many of my fellow poets in here do to.
First- I loved the title. That always sucks me in first. And the use of "wild" and "rhythm" together was an instant catcher for me. Great choice.
Second- I read once, and if I don't get the meaning, I simply "listen to how it has left me feeling"...and this poem, after all three reads, leaves me feeling breathless at the end...and as if I've been wittness to something that has fueled my passion for a long time...it leaves me feeling as though I've (the subject of the poem, not actually "me") accomplished something I've only been dreaming about up to this point.
Third- I put the poem aside, chew on it during my real life day, then come back to it, in a different frame of mind and see if it means anything different to me.
I hope you are not offended that I "didn't get it", because I find this to be a thrilling "hunt"...disecting meanings of poems in here. I truly loved this...intriguing, as said above. This is definately one I will have to get back to this evening!
Thanks for the "chewey" today!
