"Awaking to silhouettes washed out in a reddish-yellow hue, I rise from a bed of large pebbles and soft soil to find myself surrounded by tall stalks of vegetation. Pushing several strands aside, I find myself standing by a stream of freshwater. Koi fish the size of dolphins splash through the active river, playing tag with what I know to be Tanukis. Except these raccoon dogs were three times their earthly size and paid me no mind. After observing these creatures for a few minutes while washing my face with the water, I was suddenly blinded from above by the same reddish-yellow hue that I awoke to."

@ PANCHO the beat is good; don't like the whistling -- too tripped out; and the vocals I can hear words, but I can't make out what PANCHO is saying. It seems amateurish.

Poetry, gag... I hate to generalize, but when people say "poetry" it automatically clicks the person doing it must be a girl or must be gay. Here we go:

"Awaking to silhouettes washed out in a reddish-yellow hue, I rise from a bed of large pebbles and soft soil to find myself surrounded by tall stalks of vegetation. Pushing several strands aside, I find myself standing by a stream of freshwater. Koi fish the size of dolphins splash through the active river, playing tag with what I know to be Tanukis. Except these raccoon dogs were three times their earthly size and paid me no mind. After observing these creatures for a few minutes while washing my face with the water, I was suddenly blinded from above by the same reddish-yellow hue that I awoke to."

I mean, PANCHO misused the word silhouette. Silhouette is a shadow, and shadows are black, not reddish-yellow. The correct word probably would have been reflection(amateur?). In all the time PANCHO gets sci-fi about the stream, pebbles, soil, nice disconnected nouns so what is the story to the song? How can people relate if there is no story (amateur?)? No one can relate to a song with no real meaning. PANCHO is amateurish, needs to correct the vocab, make a story, say something, and quit hiding themselves with poetry.

Please take this down.... It sounds Jack in the Beanstalkish.

Your welcome :)

@Sadie Saxton

Silhouette can actually just refer to any outline that's visible over a lighter background hence making it dark in comparison. A reflection, on the other hand, can't be used to portray something you see which is not actually reflected.

Your inability to understand the story does not reflect the writer's "amateur-ness" as it's actually a clever piece which was left intentionally open-ended because from the POV of the character in the story, they don't know what's going on either.

As with all good poetry, it leaves a lot up to the reader to interpret and find meaning as it relates to their own lives. Your analysis, however: Amateur.

@wikipedia

A silhouette is the image of a person, an object or scene consisting of the outline and a featureless interior, with the silhouetted object usually being BLACK.

Yes, I am an amateur.

@sadie saxton
... wikipedia?
...really? okay lets use your reference.
poetry: "a making: a forming, creating, or the art of poetry, or a poem) is a form of literary art in which language is used for its aesthetic and evocative qualities in addition to, or in lieu of, its apparent meaning."

generalizing this back to poetry, the writer can use any "evocative qualities" to his writing. more so to attempt to persuade the reader in a way to view things in his point of view. basically in a "aesthetic" way, he created an imagery in lieu of what ever the poem was projecting. so many words in the poem would not be in literal form, but they would be in form the writer has created, not in their apparent "meaning". hence, silhouettes would be the perfect word to use in the sense of "poetry". and many professionals in poetry use styles like these, whether they are/were amateurs or not.

Poetry can either be subjective or objective depending on the message the messenger wants to convey. Sometimes there's no point at all. Actually, I adore the simplicity behind the words and the poets vision. Poetry is art not exclusive to women or gay people... So why have such a negative view about it ?

i can't wait to see what you plan on doing with this beat... <3 it and can't wait.... i love you xoxxx.ovoxo

Drake when can i beat them cheeks? im in a plane on my way...you better have them booty cheeks spread for me?

Sadie Saxton said...

@ Professional and K.P.

I wasn't arguing if it was poetry. Clearly PANCHO is in fact poetry, though the writer for PANCHO needs to work on their vocab because they misused the word silhouette, let's not be ignorant. You clearly lost that battle.

@wikipedia

I'm so sorry, but a reddish-yellow hue is not BLACK.

As far as the song goes, it is a song btw, it's most likely in a folk song category, and this is more of a R&B site. What is a folk song doing on here? Since we are going to post folk song, is this country music day? I hate country music!!!! Why don't you just go post some Brooks and Dunn while you're at it? Why don't we listen to some Blake Shelton, some Eric Church, and Pistol Annies? Why don't we all pause for a moment, get out our folk poetry and have a country style hoe down. YEEEE--HAAAAWWWWW!!!!! This is not my kind of music. Count me out.

@Sadie you're funny. : )

I'm always up for a good debate, so let's pretend Panchos in an alternate universe and the silhouette he sees is in color. Maybe his state of conciousness is altered being the reason he's seeing all of these weird things. This is what I envision when I read it. Let your imagination run away with you to a place where things aren't always logical. Do you ever dream in color?

I do not care to share because I am a private person and I hold that dream close to my heart. It seems like dreams are the only things these days I can keep private :( A internet stalker follows my every move so I can reveal too much :( So sorry but thanks for your interest.

Dig it!! #both thumbs up.. Wondering why though.. Some clarification would be appreciated

Anonymous said...

@ sadie sax.. Just cause u don't understand it or can't relate doesn't mean its shit. Maybe u should accept that ur microscopic brain cannot comprehend everything out there....oh and a silhouette can be redish if its looked at from a different perspective.. Besides the entire poem is abstract so it fits.. How can u say u like hip hop and not poetry when all rap really is is a form of poetry with beats added to it. Maybe we should take a step back and re-asses who the amateur is here.. If u can't even interpret a simple piece of literature..I'm not quite sure when being certain sex became an insult..in your world maybe.. So quick to run your mouth yet so slow to use that thing in your skull

Wow..Beautifully written, well done! That's really unqie..and if you think about it...it's Brilliant! I love poetry, Too my eyes poetry
is Fascinating in so many ways. It could be about anything! Poetry can uplift you or even bring out the emotions
that people tend hide inside. I don't know about other people but poetry is my life and I love too study it!

Speaking of poetry, today I'm going to post one of my poems on here. And it's not just
any regular poem..it has a very deep meaning too it! Probably, the hardest situations that
I'm still dealing with and I feel it's time too share my story.... :)

Forever Byrd
P.S. Right down below my poem...

Aubrey's Rose:

BROKEN CLOVER

Farewell Father, see ya soon
In another world, that's where I'll be
I guess you couldn't see the inside of me!
I cry inside because you lie
I'm daughter...
How long will it take for you too see right through my eyes

From seeing the little girl that began to rise
Together overcoming many steeping stones
Which both have shaped our lives

What else is there too say..
Your never around
You always said that, " I was your good luck charm"
You have finally found

Now I'm standing here alone
Waiting for you at the yellow brick road
Divided in two different Dimensions
That I call, The black hole!

Suprisingly I'm still here..
Wondering why I haven't left
Maybe it's because of Fear
Hearing these voices inside my head

Trying to get me to fall down
Down...I Drown to the dirt, against stones in reddish grain sand
You left me hear with Depressing feelings
Crazy thoughts, my mind is ringing!

The mirror that faces my direction
Stares right through my reflection
Remaining peices to my life unfolds
Staying alive is not an option
As for now, I'm laying in your hand, Dead in Cold!
