(poetic prose)

There were moments like this, of burning in the eyes and descending, deliberately, like a drag of smoke, down the throat. Until they reached the feet, making them hop, like upon embers. Moments of attempt, with the sense fixed, and even slightly glaring, ahead, to fly – to somewhere, away from all that crackling, crippling wings and songs in the same way, as if the horizon were, all of it, enclosed in an egg and the egg enclosed nothing but ashes. And yet, there was something, in those moments, beyond them, and maybe it came to them from outside, through translucent points in the blind shell – or maybe from within, from a primordial core, that, through the viscosity of boiling, suffocating mud, would light, in time, a possible hatching. It was necessary to reply – and the synonym was the choice, that would become, in the next moment, conformity or contradiction. Or... ah, yes, or another way, that wasn’t, even, a reply. And she didn’t even choose that one, when it simply came. The next moment, which, in its own time, became the moment that there was. She was born, then, liberated. And took flight, naturally. Below, far away, shell and ashes, interchangeable and simple sediments of what, naturally, has been. And above... nothing, yet, or everything, in the air, interchangeable and simple, of what naturally becomes, as one breathes. There was only that moment, now. And she wasn’t even surprised when she glided, naturally, in perfect harmony, as, eyes, throat, feet, whole, she plunged into it.

I miss you Alexandra and your beautiful work. Oh to leave the ashes far below! Wonderful work as always.

Reviewed by Odin Roark 8/27/2012
For me, like a feather caressing the shards of life's broken glass, knowing that to embrace the journey, no matter how tenuous at times, no matter how elusive its seeming endless task of becoming appeared, there was trust that all would settle and a finality would but give a pause before the next gust of wind would lift it skyward and the virtue of love and hope would continue. Of course, as all effective poetry does for me, your piece was a lucid means of transportation into a world that might seem like an alternative universe to your words here, but it was most rewarding to find this pathway. Thank you.

My dearest Alexandra:
Only you could paint a word picture of such flowing depth on --fledging. A moment indeed, when one leaves the nest and ventures into mid-air with only DNA faith that flight can be acheived. And I loved the human aspect of the same programming.

Flights of fantasy and fantasy of flights with many intrepid{{{{{{{hugs}}}}}},

Alexandra this is superb, lovely rendering of a most beautiful lady.

Peace, love and light,'

Such fine poetic prose; a word painting that leaves the reader breathless; and the graphic image very effectively complements the whole offering. Thank you for sharing your gifts, Alexandra. Love, peace, and best wishes,
