It can go deep, even get to the core
turn warm summer into winter through a crack in the womb
their bodies /are/ trapped in a slow gesture at the shy threshold of awareness
                                                                                (the saline grip of a tear)
it can travel inch by inch, then take over at the blink of a camera shutter
uttering no sound, a mere hiss, a frozen whisper
a paper-thin change of season, a burning stalactite that extinguishes all
their shapes /are/ deprived of movement along the frozen path
it cuts through time, hides the bride behind an ice veil
the brinicle of doubt freezes the heart

I can completely relate... ...and my second last poem posted here at AD is entitled, "Doubt." Thank you, Axilea. Love and best wishes,

The brinicle of doubt not only freezes the heart, but it paralyses the will, stifles initiative, and leaves the heart's owner bereft.

Axilla, you metaphor is a thing of beauty my dear friend -- "the saline grip of a tear" is poetic euphoria to my longing ears -- your view is crystalline while the ascent is opaque -- mystery clinging firmly to self doubt -- it is rewarding to indulge in this rendering -- the brinicle, the perfect association -- this poem is now a library piece for my future pleasure -- may the joy of love surround you with reassuring calm -- Jon Michael

Axilea, One minute it is water, then an iciggle dripping, solid ice.
Like the path of life...

Reviewed by Amber Moonstone 1/11/2012
This poem flows and drips like an icicle that is yearning to stay frozen but cannot quite manage to do that.
Lovely and haunting images.

Missed you..

Peace, love and light,

This is a really felt piece, Axilea, and you have conjured both mood and sensation through your chilling images. Interesting form, too. It's probably the lateness of the hour here, but makes me think of all those potential foetuses held in suspended animation in storage, as yet in egg/sperm banks. And the hopes/fears/angst of all those on infertility treatment and waiting lists. Sorry to be peculiar, but it's just the thought that came to me. xx

Many deep emotions in this cool piece Axilea,
I like "the grip of a tear" I think they have such grip,
for they do not like leaving the place came from,
in the center of the heart.
Reviewed by Charlie 1/10/2012
I love how you find these obscure words I have to look up, and then give them depth and visible meaning. Most fabulous line: "crack in the womb" (chills down my spine). Also, "paper-thin change of season" is very effective. The last line clenches the reader, and we're convinced you're right about doubt--about its depth and about its effects. So nice to read you again. --Charlie
