"I M Vertical" this poem make me feel so differently
still i m thinking abt it, truly in a different world. not able to express
my feeling right now.
but really a deep desire of longevity and dareness is making
feels so appealling. description of beautiful unknowingness which make life
so certain,so painless,so relaxed,so calm that one can feel the nature's
sense of inner insecurity hidden in all of us which errupt by
looking those trees and flowers who r in care of mother land. we all in
somehow situation filled with our greatest fear "future insecurity",
haunting all of us in the same way. but look at those beautiful flowers,
they r young so full of beuty, refreshing everything with there fragrance
without knowing that after some time there petals are going to fall,it is
there destiny.
this unknowing certainity give them entrance into the kingdom of nature
from which we human being remain always apart b'coz of our own fear,b'coz
of our own intellect which seprate us from that eternal pleasure, from the
love of mother nature.
i cant write too much now.. emotion r uncotrolled now. but this
poem touches my heart so
strongely that i want to cry in alone.. i hope everyone who experienced the
life truly will like it
and feel it too.............

i recently got involved with poetry and i had no idea how deep it can be. i
especially like this poem because it shows that people have insecutities,
we don't always feel beautiful like a garden bed. and sometimes we think we
would be better off (horizontal)or dead. and sometimes we miss that
motherly love. poetry let's me see thinks with a deeper meaning

this poem indicates that Sylvia would rather be Dead (horizontal). She
seems to dispise the flowers because they do not know they are to die. And
what is more natural to her lying down (dead in a casket).
The tree's do not notice her because she is not dead yet. Only when she is
dead the tree's (roots)will have use for her (as food).

this piece of art is the most amazaing thing i have ever read and to be
honest I'm just impressed anyway I keep on writing essay about sylvia and
found that poem in an original version, I love it in polish but in eglish
it's beautiful too.. I feel like i met sylvia her self in this poem she's
more peaceful than angry and that helps me find her in a very different
way, regards, milena
