Ebb And Flow

Ebb and Flow

Black as coal
        Darker than a moonless night sans stars
           As blind to sight as a blizzard to a snowflake

 

is this mystery

 

        drawn
        compelled
        inexplicable

Yet with sooooooooooooooo many black holes one has to wonder

How ever does this universe exist?

 

Einstein would have thot it child’s play

 

      “Simple you bafoons,
                  One creates the chaotic world they exist in
                                     and
        the other is throughly  entrenched in the theory of a chaotic universe —

 

so no matter the
                                                head banging

 

there is a  river running thru
 the   rivers   of  l  o  v  e
are rare

 

 

 

And when found
                                           run
                                                       d
                                                                  E
                                                             E
                                                                  p
                                                                      p
                                                                          e
                                                                              r
 than imagining.

 

                Flowing strong
                           from time immemorial till time ceases to exist.

 

 

            But  rivers

 

                   Be they crashing as white water over hidden boulders
                    or pooled
                   black as night
                                   masquerading as swimming holes

 

 never,never,never run clear and bubbling
                                                    Like brooks strayed from streams.

 

                                 L   I                    e
  rivers  are     a                     v
           In constant             f, l, u,x

 

Always flowing

 

Ever moving.

 

So why are you surprised to witness this miracle?

Rochelle began writing at the age of twelve. Encouraged by her local librarian, she cut her poetic teeth on ee cummings, T.S. Eliot, Walt Whitman and Elizabeth Barrett Browning, all of whom continue to influence her writing today.

She is a logophile and her playful attitude towards words can often be seen in her writing through her use of fonts, space, spelling and design.

She considers it a privilege to be read and to be an active contributor to Spillwords.
