Seeds II ~ A Trilogy

 

The seeds had fallen from the sky
and disappeared
and the world breathed a collective sigh of relief
and stood down for a moment
Until the first tendrils appeared spiraling up in the silver dawn
not like plants not like animals
not the familiar the definable
but like
Other
following no pattern that the human eye could decipher
yet they grew swift and sure in that otherness
and hung swaying in the alien breeze

About chimerapoet

I write. I write a lot. A. LOT. There are times I am half blind with a sentence ricocheting off the walls of my stupid, cant be shut off to save my life, brain. I am miserable until I get it down on paper. Punch it up a bit. Usually cross out half of it. And then breathe. Relax. Only to do it all again..... But I just thought that was me. How I am. Not a writer....noooo...not me. Writers are.....writing people. People Who Write. REALLY write. Write things that matter. All grown up very important things. Not.....me. I am just a scribbler of sorts. And I was/am content with that....if it's true, well then....a scribbler am I. Until the thought wormed its way in to my brain (the furtive sneaky bitch) that maybe...just maybe...that is writing. My style. My strange way. But....still writing. So here I am at the dance. Not sure I know any of the moves and the music is entirely mine. But.....only one way to find out. Would you care to join me?

    Love this part: “not the familiar the definable / but like / Other”. The other is such a power thing throughout history, and it was powerful here again as well.
