One Can of Pringles and the Moon

by Maple Tree   May 31, 2017


Tonight I'm left dangling by a thread.

These past few weeks have taken its toll
upon my mind, even possibly my spirit.

I am surrounded by God Blessing me -
when in my reality he is split into multiple
personalities, granting seven Gods to choose from.

Slumbering within meditation, whispers
grow faint, all I can hear is crunching
of chips against my palette.

Just a simple girl at heart.

I dont need a bible to tell me how to live,
what laws to abide by - I just need trees
and moon; there are lingering spirits in
these woods nearby- and they talk to me.

I've been lost,
its time to regroup my soul,
one can of Pringles for the child in me
and the moon.....

to call the old woman
back to her roots.

    I truly love poems were poets let their feelings hang loose and let it all go. I love this poem, because it lets the reader craft a picture in their head and you feel sad for the character. The beginning is gripping because the first line pulls you in. The reader asks themselves what is going on and as you read further down the poem in face the next couplet , you startto understand.

    The writer is troubled. But how we don't know only we can guess. You get a sense that religon is going astray, at least in a god sense. Because of the seven personalities. That tells me that you look up to seven people in your life and all or some are troubled/in trouble and you don't know how to handle it. But...

    In the middle of the poem you see something change. And i find it amazing that it that chips make you happy. Not the chips themselves per se, but that anything can make someone happy.

    Just a simple girl at heart- i love how you left this on its own because you brought it attention. It is turning the poem.

    The ending is my favorite part because you see the person figuring out that they need to reconnect with who they are. Whether it be with chips or their own religion. They realize that they need to find happiness again.

    This is a wonderful write Andrea. And i hope you find your peace <3 you deserve it.

    This was a beautiful write! I am always amazed how the moon makes people feel. It will always be special for us. I love the idea of Pringles too, it speaks of the everyday normal life. The combination of these two is awesome. I adore this poem so much.

    This is so beautifully written and full of so much emotion. Sometimes getting in touch with that inner child can be just what someone needs to find some peace and heal. Much love to you, Andrea.
