First I want to say that the title was beautiful and mysterious. Being an original title, I enjoyed it and knew the poem would be a good read. I liked how you had opposites of a kitchen with you being in the middle and how you described yourself as a leaf: Though whether it meant feeling small or something else entirely I'm not sure. I loved your final stanza, as it reminded me of a marriage for some reason. Especially the platinum which to me seemed like rings and newlyweds but I ould be wrong. Excellent write.
I think it was very absrtact and very beautiful. the flow was quite nice and the whole poem had a ....pristine sorta feel abotu it. really sweet. i do feel, however that i have absolutely no idea what it's about. lol
If you DIDN'T understand the poem as well as you would have liked, please read the following and I hope it helps.
The trees describe my parents (Chestnut and Oak are from the same tree family, coincidence?) and so I am the leaf in the centre. The kitchen is believed to be the heart of the home (family/love/home etc.)
A maiden is an unmarried woman (me). Wig means hair and she cut off her curls (representing childhood) to grow up and become independent. Sheâ€™s â€œcoldâ€ and â€œripening to step awayâ€ because sheâ€™s finding her feet without her parents but remembering she needs to be independent for a reason.
