Resemblance

Magpie Picture Prompt
A tinge of yellow
rotating at high speed
shines brighter
to a full yellow circle
throu' the effect of
spinning blades
recalls resemblance
a bright ball of fire
spinning around
marking the Sun by
gravitational mass
Black holes ,do they
exist in the above both
between  
the producer of wind
and 
the generator of heat
without which my earth 
challenges to exist ?

This is me :
 To bring out the sparkling light of creativeness in you , 
 you got to burn the oil of time and space -  ©Umamaheswari Anandane
   
Redundant phrasing - Words, phrases, lines, stanzas, even, that are unnecessary according to me are :[ rotating ] at [high] [ speed], [The spinning] I repeated ,[by] gravitational [ mass] and between  [the producer of wind] and [the generator of heat]

  1. Really excellent!
    I enjoyed the imagery of the bright ball of fire and the question about black holes.
    Thank you for taking this one cosmic.

  3. nice...love the part toward the end..the question in the black holes...becuase this opens it up well beyond just the sun or a wind vain...

  4. Very visual poem--I'm seeing a spinning pinwheel of hot metal between heaven and earth.

  6. Not sure if my previous comment "took"--I love the images you create and was able to visualize them as I read.

  9. i would add a line before the black holes for sure just to add emphasis as that starts my fav part...the repeat of yellow loses me a bit and think you could come up with another synonym there that would enhance it...

  10. Big topic here. Normally I would suggest focusing on something small, an object of interest perhaps, but I think you've managed to convey your thoughts well without doing that. As we're focusing this week on redundant words/phrasing I'm going to do a line by line just to demonstrate how paring a piece down to its essence can serve to strengthen it. I also think the piece would benefit from some punctuation to guide the reader. I've suggested a few alternatives as well to avoid cliche and also to give the piece a little more punch. I feel a well-placed stanza break would give the piece a little space to breathe too.

    A tinge of yellow [,]
    rotating at high speed[,]
    shines brighter [burnishes]
    to a full yellow circle [yellow twice, pretty close together - citrine perhaps - would give you a lovely alliteration with circle]
    throu' [the effect
    of] spinning blades[.] [cut]
    recalls resemblance [;]
    a bright ball of fire [a bright ball of fire is bordering on cliche, how about fiery orb]
    spinning around[,]
    marking the sun
    by gravitational mass[.] [stanza break]
    Black holes[:] do they
    exist in the above[,] both [you've used exist again further down, I'd suggest changing one of them, this one probably as the verb works better in the last line but I'm not sure what to suggest as a replacement]
    between [the placement of this word works well]
    the producer of wind
    and
    the generator of heat[,]
    without which my earth
    challenges to exist? [challenges is an unusual verb to use here but I feel it works]


    So it would look like this


    A tinge of yellow ,
    rotating at high speed,
    burnishes
    to a full citrine circle
    throu' spinning blades.
    Recalls resemblance;
    a fiery orb
    spinning around,
    marking the sun
    by gravitational mass.

    Black holes: do they
    exist in the above, both
    between
    the producer of wind
    and
    the generator of heat,
    without which my earth
    challenges to exist?


    This is of course just my opnion, some thoughts to mull over.
