The Great Melting

Alex has been a photographer since he was in grade school. He thoroughly enjoys various arts, and he participates in some of them at times.

The End Of The Beginning's Start

The colors they melt together.
Leather, weather, feather.
Everything goes together.
But, if it does - then it also does not.
The metal that separates the boiling pot.
If words are keys, not doors or truths,
then, all is lost - each nail and tooth.

In Out Sync Is Synced Out In

The colors they melt together.
Leather, weather, feather.
Everything goes together.
What if it does not not does it not not.
Oh, that greatest of the melting pots.
La verdad es la verdad en cada camino,
pero - no more help for this latino.
The start of the hill is too its' end.
For only it is that we can recommend.

Not Time For Timeless Time

The colors they melt together.
Leather, weather, feather.
Everything goes together.
Time exists when we,
when we have time just to be.
Don't you see?
Or, is it just me.
It might be key.
It also may not.
"May not what?" you ask.
But, I suspect that perchance,
perhaps, we twain know.

The Non-melted Salads Of Yesteryear

The colors they melt together.
Leather, weather, feather.
Everything goes together.
A salad touches not the aether.
Rather; a salad is like this.
Distinct, undissolved, separate...
The swirles are charmers.
All this from farmers.
Neither should harm us,
because of the armours.

Thank you Rose.

Gypsy Rose Lee from Daytona Beach, Florida on April 29, 2019:

Enjoyed your wonderful poem.

Elijah, you'd be surprised how much you can add in there, even if you feel like it's getting full.

Alexander James Guckenberger (author) from Maryland, United States of America on April 29, 2019:

Eric, that is so awesome. I would love to experience that one day.

Eric Dierker from Spring Valley, CA. U.S.A. on April 29, 2019:

Wonderfully written. Fun to read. I just hiked the Grand Canyon and it is so cool how huge geological formations melt into each other after Ions.

Thanks for Spanish 101. I passed through the U.S. de Mexico for 6 months but learned very Spanish, my mind is too dense to grasp it as of now, so I didn't know much of or about the language.

Alexander James Guckenberger (author) from Maryland, United States of America on April 29, 2019:

Semantics is an art form. Keep in mind that double negatives result in positives in many dialects of English (though, not all), and produce even firmer negatives in many dialects of Spanish.

AJ, I can comprehend it if it read "what if it does not not does it not" but not with the fourth not.

I do get the last part, everything returned to earth as a medicine when properly disposed of.

Alexander James Guckenberger (author) from Maryland, United States of America on April 29, 2019:

Elijah, I know you can get it. :)

Alexander James Guckenberger (author) from Maryland, United States of America on April 29, 2019:

It's a style that I usually don't apply anymore.

Elijah A Alexander Jr from Washington DC on April 29, 2019:

Very interesting, AJ, I was able to make sense of most but the last part lost me. Also I'm wondering why there's the repetition in "What if it does not not does it not not."

This was quite unique Alexander. In your own words “Poetry is a good way to unwind.” Lol
