    dotsOdette (edited)dots

    Bubbles in the bath swirl like clouds
    In a sorrowful sky
    While a lady scrubs out the ugly remains
    Of a day
    To no avail.
    She wants to disappear a spell
    And unplugs the drain.
    She shuts her eyes and submerges,
    Starts to melt 'til she converges
    With the soapy water.
    Her hand --
    The one part
    Yet to be liquid
    Guides her matter to the drain.
    She spins down with
    The tiny tornado.
    ...The lady sleeps a night and day...
    Beneath the waves,
    Her particles travel,
    Transforming, as
    They drift
    Through sewage, sand, disarray,
    She sleeps a night and day.
    When she's solid, she awakes,
    Swiftly swimming up until
    Surface breaks;
    Water sprays.
    Now she floats above.
    Lady cranes her graceful neck
    To glimpse reflections
    In a lake.
    Pristine, white feathers catch
    Her gaze, and she
    Peeks at an orange beak,
    Stares at a halved heart,
    Blackened eyes.
    She hears the rising Moon sigh.
    "Hello, Odette, my maiden swan.
    Darling, it's been far too long."
    The swan looks up,
    Grants a nod,
    Then turns her face away.
    She skims
    The shimmering waters,
    Lake and Moon accompany
    Into the night
    'Til distant Sun calls her home;
    Moon permits her to return.
    But swan ignores the moon and sun.
    Tonight, she'll sleep upon the shore.
    And in the morning,
    She will roam.

      much much inprovenment
    from the 1'st poems jump

    can't say that its forced
    its all how the viewer
    approces the words .

    my PN [personal note]

    its kinda like a flowing maze, a weird LSD trip

    good jump - i think the poem landed on its feet

      Very good writing. The only thing I felt uncomfortable with is the rhyming in the middle with astray, disarray and day. Seems a bit much and forced. Maybe better to drop astray altogether.

      This was written very well. The flow and imagery was fantastic. I especially like how you took an old fairy tale and made it your own. Kudos.

    Keep up the good work and I'll keep reading.
