Eyes: White-Holes - Poem by Ali Adamson

Before you scrape
and erase their marks
when I do read
few letters stick
on your lips
How, I do flow!
in the moist layers
with conscious mind of
some other space
and within no moment
I sink in eyes...
for ages... for lives
going to die
coming to life...
When i return...
coffee is served!

    This is tremendous. I've read and reread this several times, and each time I am struck by a different set of images. This could involve the imagination....the power of the word to create the ideal vision, teh desire, and then the fade away. Once the coffee arrives, there is the need to put down the word and return to daily living. I shall have to come back to this gem again and again. (Report) Reply

    Lot can happen by the time coffee is served even dwelling in some other space. Nice poem. Thank you. (Report) Reply

    flowing, reading, sinking, dying, much (non-) action is going on in such a brief write...if a few letters can be read and understood before their apparent erasure, then certainly eyes are not merely the white-holes but a channel...i am not sure about my interpretation but it looks so to me...the coffee-serving suddenly comes as a striking of the Big Ben!

    you lost me a bit until the last line. i DO understand coffee is served. is there cake with the coffee? yes? i'll be right over to join you. if you used more punctuation it MIGHT have helped me some to understand; i'm not sure if it would.
    with concious mind of... conscious? oops! an easy mistake to make!
    you invited me to read, i read, and i thank you for sharing. :) yes, the title and the last line i enjoyed.
    p.s. i loved to watch you box on tv years ago.

    Do deep thoughts and cups of coffee go together? It is possible
    if two souls have achieved rapport with one another. A poem
    of awareness.10, for you.

    Warm regards,
