disembodied spheres

Abstract 02 (From the Musee d Orsay series) by Walter W Smith

disembodied spheres

disembodied spheres, contiguous to contradictory
aspects of reality ― inviolable trans-empirical congeners.

abstractly marginal concepts run swiftly in
dysfunctional Rodentia  brains silently breaking moonlight.

self-causation. incantation. ordination. reassertion

incandescent power. scintillating siren speaks apostolically.
barrel-jammed full of exo-bizzare causal continuity.

extrasensory existentialist momentary causality
innervates gaudy uniqueness that knows no bounds.

encapsulation. detonation. postulation. misdirection.


Today’s prompt, by


 was to write a poem about how the art of  speaks to Us.

About zongrik

For those of you who do not know the handle "zongrik," that would be Bat-Ami Gordin. Most people call me "Tammy." Bat-Ami means "daughter of my nation" in Hebrew. It's a heavy name to carry around. I answer to either name. I also answer to "mama." Some Basic Things about me: Animal lover, mom, poet/writer, dramatic soprano, photographer, teacher/tutor, CERT/Technician and, oh yeah, aerospace engineer. I consider myself "The Astro-Poet." To learn more about the origins of the word "zongrik" see whats-a-zongrik?

  1. i like how your play on the kind of abstract combination here with disembodied spheres…the whole poem mirrors for me the rather surreal piece of art..nice..

  2. kabow…consider my mind blown….lol

    abstractly marginal concepts run swiftly in
    dysfunctional Rodentia brains silently breaking moonlight

    yep went right on out…smiles…love how you make complex concepts dance…

    wicked flow…

  3. fascinating take on the photo. Your terminology flows abstractly/without bounds. very suiting for the prompt. I like it!

  4. I’m with Brian. My brain just went ..ka boom. There is so much intricacy, subtle, abstract yet so very clever too ( from what I understand of it) makes sense. It is fascinating.

  5. The picture and words matched…nice take on the abstract art ~

  6. it was as if this image was created for your words to it, wonderful pen ~ Rose

  7. “barrel-jammed full of exo-bizzare causal continuity.” …excellent !!!

    there is art to abstract wordsmithery…you have done well here

    Peace ☮

  8. Love the alliterations; some mind-blowing lines too; and the ease with which your rhythm carries some pretty heavy concepts is impressive.

  9. “extrasensory existentialist momentary causality
    innervates gaudy uniqueness that knows no bounds”

    This is just brilliant! Love the abstract flow of this poem and the alliteration.

  10. I have to say Tammy, I enjoyed this poem with great passion. My girlfriend said I had to describe at least one post as … “Oh, that was too deep” … and Tammy that expression is certainly reserved for your poem. I love it. It flows with my piece with such “extrasensory existentialist momentary causality.” Isn’t that what we are trying to achieve when we create art? Is it not a possession that we long for? Can we not trust in that mystery and let abstract say what it must?

    Beautiful is it not….

  11. You definitely caught the spirit of abstraction of the art. Your wordplay, as always, just so enjoyable with its interplay between denotation and connotation. The objective lens you project onto this piece, refocusing it from inside out, calls to mind the panoptic sphere that’s celebrated so widely among realists.

  12. Fascinating whirlwind of vocab. I agree you captured abstract art. 🙂

  13. I agree– very deep– I love it when the scientific mind and the poetic come together as they ably do in this poem. xj
