interlude with ione

Amethyst mushroomed,
a vision within a dream,
our minds met just then.

In that brief spell where time wasn’t,
I understood part of you.
I let you all the way in,
past my ione persona.

You measured trustworthiness,
I trusted you as much as I could.
You offered a gift, a path of choice,
I gave you nothing, really,
just misguided love,
you’ve had plenty of that.

Now the sacking is emerald,
the many oils of your ideas
by degrees bleeding to white,
then to nothing I will recognize.

Caught between two worlds,
spring bordering on summer,
death comes before rebirth.

Great imagery, Corrine -- sounds so sad, though

Hey Corinne - how are you?

Wonderful poem here my friend...and sad - it is the emptiness I see.

Thanks, Netswan.

Doing Fine, Severn, how is life treating you, dear?

Yes, death is sad, the loss of a friend is what we feel most.

Very nicely done, my friend.. Of course, I've come to expect nothing less than greatness from you... I like the final stanza best...

this is awesome Corinne...
you always write in such a mannor,
that it makes  me work to find all the lessons and wisdom in your poems...
(which means Im slow and dense) LOL
you write with poetic intelligence...
how did ya get to be so smart anyway  
take care, jm


 It's amazing
How you make your face just like a wall
How you take your heart and turn it off
How I turn my head and you lose it all ...
And it's unnerving
How one move just puts me by myself
There you go just trusting someone else
Now I know I put us both through hell ...
I'm not sayin
That there was nothing wrong
I just didn't think you'd ever get tired of me
And I'm not sayin
We ever had the right to hold on
I just didn't wanna let you get away from me.

Corinne~
I found the sorrow of your loss woven into this piece of beauty.

'Now the sacking is emerald,
the many oils of your ideas
by degrees bleeding to white,
then to nothing I will recognize.'

HUGS, my friend.
Love ya'

Thanks Nan, a painful journey this one.

Janet Marie, you are too kind.  Not smart, just a lot of recent heavy experiences, they must have some upside, I guess. Lessons learned, enlightenment, etc.

Marge, thanks, hon. It's too difficult to begin to explain...

Your pain reflects vividly here, Corinne.  Love the referances to Amethyst and Emerald here.  Indeed, death comes before rebirth - and sometimes that death is slow and agonizing too...  good poem.

Corinne, your a lot more complex then meets the eye. Your use of imagery humbles me, many a time. This being one of them.... Sorry I seem have failed to respond to this one, not having the words to give it proper compliment.

Thank you, Michael, sometimes we have to dwell in a dark place in order to rise with the sun. However, I hope it will be a brief visit. I just don't have the strength to hang out in dark places for very long anymore.

Park,

thank you, my friend, for all your kind words. Your poetry shines with complex imagery as well.

So deep, I could drown trying to grasp all the feelings expressed here...

I cannot say for sure if I have understood the gist of what you wanted to say, but I am trying hard...

I am hereby trying to add my own flow of thoughts. I hope that you don't mind...
------
Our eyes met just to say hello,
Whispering love ever so mellow,
Trust, friendship, support, dumped ego,
Souls searched, minds met, said "off we go".

Days passed, nights flew,
Now all I have is left-over strains,
All colours and all the hue,
Leaving behind melancholy pains.

Misery lacks company said the enlightened one,
Yes, now I stand saddened and anguished,
All that I could I might not have done,
Else this heart would not have been bereaved...
-----


 Life is like a painting,
That in an art gallery is left hanging,
Though many come just to look at it,
A very few actually come to enjoy it.

Corinne,

How wonderfully you share all your journeys -  light, dark or complex blends.  Thank you.

Very well written, Corinne. I hope your stay in this valley is short lived. I guess we can't really appreciate the mountaintops without these valleys. They are painful though. HUGS

Thanks Sunshine and Denise,

yes, it is here where we grow the most, though we'd rather not.

Thank you,

Corinne
