Sonata

Inspired by, and a response to, Nette Onclaud’s: “Welcoming a new Tune”

What is it about a falling star?

Stardust tears mimicking an inevitable end
Yet, we reach higher

A palladium telescope, no longer needed.

Artificial eyes that we no longer desire.

A wanton cerebellum pulling heart’s trigger

Pulling

Towards constellation's grip

...

Another Chopin sharp
Echoing unto sunbursts

F a l l i n g Again, fallen
Flat Another accented clef breaking barriers. The song of the wisp bellows. Will the time arrive where one can rise into chorded incipience? Embarking towards our heaven without any gates… Minutes will be measured by breaths held in sincerity. An infinite stanza lunging my essence towards serenity’s bliss Ah, there is indeed something about the cuddle of this mist… ©Drake J. Eszes

    Mystifying one..I really loved this one! You are a master of free verse. "embarking towards our heaven without any gates.." cool line! It would be something to behold... that true harmony and freedom. You've composed a very musically brilliant and visual poem that draws you in much like the gravity of the moon and ocean. Awesome one my friend. I'm gonna take a look at this poem that inspired you now.. Always, Laura

    Hi there, Laura! =D A heaven without gates would be just the ticket to shake the foundations of all we thought we knew, eh? Thank you so much. Yes, the poem that inspired this by Nette, was just mesmerizing. :) It's really nice to see you here.

    Drake I think you definitely did Nette's poem justice. A very inspiring read. I love the way you typed 'Falling Again, Falling', too. An excellent write. Warm Smiles, Connie

    You have such a unique style, mate. I have no idea where the poem is going, but it's like a roller coaster - I'm in it for the ride. The middle bit, where you formatted the word FALLING was so inventive. You write in such a way where it's easy to immerse yourself in the words to where I don't feel like I'm reading so much as someone is telling me a story.

    Hey there, Tim! :) I think the question on where the poem was going is because it was a "response" to another poet's writing. Perhaps that may make a greater connection? :) Either way, it's really kind of you to stop by here. I'm quite grateful for that. Cheers!

    WOW--- this is an exceptional write-- beyond and above our realms of contemplation. Drake, you are certainly talented-- I hope you have published a book or two :) I have just done a short run of some of my stuff myself... amazingly it is selling, and I'm nowhere near your level of talent xx

    Actually, I do have a book on Amazon called "As I Stand". It doesn't sell how I'd like, but I'm happy it's out there anyway. :) That's very thoughtful of you to say. Thank you so much.
