A stand in the mist ~
marrow revealed against the grain
of bentwood bones, tales inside the skin
of weathered bodies;
you’ll find her deep;
she is the twisted trellis to an ambitious vine ~
home to tangled starlit sinew stringing
together bare limbs; she is the presence
within the dark fold, the lore
of the mossy understory; her canopy weave ~
a dreamcatcher
above the sleeping mull.

This is one of those magical poems with descriptive insight into the nature of unfolding life coupled with the essence of dream and the nature of the inward spirit. It fairly sings to me...well done, Gina.....Jerry

Grandiose lies nature underfoot and surrounding life with a keen eye bent to its presence. Beautifully written.

A recluse hoping for release, is how I interpret this. Mayhap her dreams are her freedom?

Highly intelligent write as always.

I especially like, "her canopy weave - a dreamcatcher above the sleeping mull." When you rest at the foot of a tree and look up, the canopy does look like the center part of a dreamcatcher.

love all of this! some favs: "mossy understory" "tales inside the skin"

Reviewed by Kate Burnside
This is totally intoxicating, Gianetta! The diction alone is like an opiate, a beautiful draught of some poetic elixir that both stimulates and soothes. I love how you start with a concrete image, but end with the essence, the spirit within which is perhaps like a hibernating animal - secret, warm and mysterious. That final word, "mull" is a masterpiece: so strong yet romantic. Beautiful title too... Ah yes, Gina is back and what a homecoming! Great to see you here again! :)) xx

I absolutely love this as I do all of your poetry. She seems to be on the outskirts of herself, Keeping herself shut down inside somehow.

Gina, I like the way your mind wraps around this
haunting stand in the mist. Love the ess sound in
"tales inside the skin of weathered bodies." You're
writing today with such depth and confidence. -gene.

Dreamy, ethereal and mystical, Gina,
an enchanted mood and a special way of seeing,
a poet's vision.

Reviewed by J.A. Aarntzen
I have several trees on my property where vines are snaking their way up through the branches. I have always found that there is something deeply mystical about the gnarly and the tangled. It is as if they beckon to an age long gone - a pagan age that has become lost to us. Your poem has grabbed onto this feeling and it has painted it with a description that melds composition to decomposition and chills and thrills the heart. Once again I am so glad that you are posting again Gina.

Pure and beautiful and it flows with such distinction...
