One, two, three, one two, three...

His notebooks so many,
most of them empty,
but for a few titles, incomplete,
sketches unfinished and forgotten.

In this bedroom I am
in a library,
leather-bound volumes full of nothing
in a ballroom of reflecting ghosts.

In that bedroom I felt
thief in a mirror
interpreter of a dead language
of signs long perverted, now spinning,
intruder with a mission ignored.

In notebooks so misty,
looking for secrets
I found dizzy traits and meaningless
shapes, blank spaces: receptacles for tears.

I am curious about the 'him' whose notebooks these are. That there are 'so many' notebooks having received such broken attention and what made that happen. Gorgeous eerie dance, an inticing, hinting tale. ~~ Diana

I like the concepts that you have offered. The metaphoric images
are unique and easily viewed within the notebook of my own thoughts.
A very catchy title.

Sometimes dead things require an interpreter or will be forever lost. There is much honor, and often pain in that role, here which you perfectly perform. Patrick

I have to publicly thank my friend John for this comment. The last two lines go straight to my heart!

For me, Axilea, a search through a list
of achievements (well, more 'good' intentions than actual
achievements) and not finding very much..
as indeed if we go through our 'life lists'
how much indeed do we find that's worthwhile and lasting?
Gide was right - good intentions do make the worst literature.
There's a deep sadness throughout but it's not at any time
maudlin or self-indulgent.

I see you've found the missing links... in a broken chain of existence... sad cadre of irrelevances make for a moving read. Pertinent and pervasive I would imagine in our collective of collectors, who accumulate so much, but at what cost?

This reminds me of another library poem you wrote. The mood is soft and searching, not remorseful or resentful, just lightly, liltingly sad. And many a many line has just 3 stressed syllables-- clever. --Charlie

your experience crafted by circumstance reveals our exposure to the uncharted journeys of the heart -- voyages with open ended destinations -- regardless of the reasons we are left with the hollow embraces of recollections wrapped in journals of want -- Axilea this is an enchanting tale of love with all of its gifts and disappointments -- you related it all with the romance and passion of one who has made the voyage -- I bid you love, joy and peace my dear friend -- Jon Michael
Reviewed by Kate Burnside 10/29/2011
This has a very lyrical, haunting quality, Axilea, as one is drawn deeper and deeper into the melody of the notebooks, searching for clues and answers - but finding only tears as a watermark through the paper as a base to the indecipherable runes and symbols. I like the hooks of the second and third stanzas: In this bedroom I am .... and In that bedroom I felt... Has a wandering sense and an allure. As always, so considered and thoughtfully crafted. xx
