       I wrote this in wee-hours of morning. The words came to me from somewhere. Immediately wrote it. It's about calmness, peace. I do not know why i compared it to 'a flower made of glass'. But i couldn't think of any other object.

    dotsFlower of Glassdots

    This calmness,
    a sigh
    touches the tall, thorny fig tree,
    on a early winter afternoon,
    a rare tulip somewhere,
    frozen, still lovely;

    The sun seems to shine,
    with a new halo,
    a fabric of designed with frills of felt;

    This moment very much
    sails delicately,
    a pearl-winged angel,
    that floats - a whisper on the cottony cloud;

    Once soft velvety grass,
    a bed of green in summer,
    streaked yellow in spring,
    coated with vaccum-filled snow,

    assuming a form,
    the seasons so very clockwise,
    - defined;

    a lotus-filled old lake,
    ignored, perfumeless
    - a time long gone by;


    soulful -
    a untuned flute
    with it's own melody,
    a new song
    - not sung;

    submissive -
    a old heart filled
    with new waves of love;

    nostalgic -
    a wind of childhood
    once playful
    on sands of a forgotten shore;

    reflective -
    a mirror of memory
    mostly hurtful,
    sometimes bringing joy;

    hidden -
    a bandaged scar from
    a deep hurt;

    lonesome -
    a love trail
    mid way;

    comforting -
    the cold crazy moon
    with many faces,
    guiding though;

    faithless -
    a stiff autocrate
    the holy pew;

    meaningless -
    the story of rainbow
    with a pot of wealth;

    thought-provoking -
    a rusted coin
    two sides,

    Mostly -

    a flower made of glass.

      I'm naming this a favorite, though I am divided on my opinion of this poem as a whole.

    Why would I say such a thing? Well, because the first few strophes are SO amazing, and spoke so clearly to me that I knew almost immediately this was a favorite. As I continued to read, I found the potency was a bit diluted about the point where you say


    And though I offer up this double-edged comment, I don't feel the second half of the poem was BAD, per se, it just didn't quite have the same power as the first section.

    Ah, I hate being ambiguous or leaving this kind of jaded compliment, but that's my honest assessment of this piece, and I live and die by my honesty.

    I love this poem and I'll keep it and hope you'll one day revisit it and if you do, please drop me a line and let me know. I'll help in any way that I can . . .

    This is a rare, beautiful gem!

      I like the imagery of the piece, although I felt you could have done better on some of the spacing and the isolation of 'as', 'at', etc seemed unnecessary as it detracted from other parts of the stanza and gave the flow a herky jerky sensation at times. There were also points where I would have reassessed the breaks in some 'sentences'.

    Overall I think this is a moderately good piece. Strong on imagery, somewhat weaker on flow structure (I don't really care about metre and what not, but flow is important). I encourage you to keep up the good work.

      Altho long this was an easy flowing read. your imagery again and creativity is exceptional, as you listed all the atributes one after the other. I felt as if I was walking through that grass down the path you were taking me. Really lovely! Steve

      It started as a story slowly trailing leaving beautiful footprints of memorie and wonder of natureportraying love. at first i did not like the way it trailed but, i read it agian and it gave it a tone... After the word yet, it turned more broken. However this worked too. the way you selected the words to describe it in a new way. I liked it overall!

      WOW! It seems that today is a good day for poetry on Elite. Awesome write! I know why you entitled it "a flower made of glass". It's the only way you could have named this, it fits the poem perfectly. The flower stands as a symbol for love, I think you know this. A glass flower is frozen love, void of feelings, beauty almighty, the feminine eternal. This poem is about a state of mind that many women are trying to achieve but most fail. If you did it at such an early age it means that you are very powerful. But beware! The road ahead is now tampered with the danger of absolute dryness. You must not let your soul loose itself in this cold desert that lyes ahead.

      Good words that came to your mind that morning. But I am curious to know what you did the night before. The phrase 'a untuned flute' seems unfit to me...
