hey ya Om really like two stone wheels. Good to see your still around.

Undone

The day had come
I did not see the night
Therefore I noticed not the light
Yet I knew
Change had come
I had come undone
Lost in an invisible space
Try as I may to find my place
I roam til the light became blinding
The truth brutal
The trials unbearable
Then I reached out
Found my place
in this invisible space

Hi folks

Just a quick howdy, and thanks to, TNT, Tree-cat, and AF. Good to see you all.

It's a great road to bike up, AF! The Fall colours made it even more enjoyable.

Seems like, "reaching out", is always a good 101 lesson for us. Thanks for leaving your hat, there, cat..;) Sounds like you had a nice resolve.

ok, finally a whole week off. Yes!
Let's see if I have a wee ku before I split this city, again.

A Critiquing Poem

'Saved by a Poem:
The Transformative
Power of Words
an evening of poetry, music and
inspiration with Kim Rosen'

I was in the nose-bleed section of the living room.
The dining chair was uncomfortable!
I left after the first half

Meditation music, and poetry ?

Nah,
last night a DJ saved my life

A Myopic Blur


From a throbbing sky
A pair of piper cubs

There’s a sandy beach
Where you brought your kids.
The waves
That once rushed to your feet.

A Hand-Mirror (by Walt Whitman)


HOLD it up sternly! See this it sends back! (Who is it? Is it you?)
Outside fair costume--within ashes and filth,
No more a flashing eye--no more a sonorous voice or springy step;
Now some slave's eye, voice, hands, step,
A drunkard's breath, unwholesome eater's face, venerealee's flesh,
Lungs rotting away piecemeal, stomach sour and cankerous,
Joints rheumatic, bowels clogged with abomination,
Blood circulating dark and poisonous streams,
Words babble, hearing and touch callous,
No brain, no heart left--no magnetism of sex; 10
Such, from one look in this looking-glass ere you go hence,
Such a result so soon--and from such a beginning!

Walt Whitman

Lesya Ukrainka (Laryssa Kossatch) (1871 – 1913)

Contra spem spero

Thoughts, away, you heavy clouds of autumn !
For now springtime comes, agleam with gold !
Shall thus in grief and wailing for ill fortune
All the tale of my young years be told ?

No, I want to smile through tears and weeping,
Sing my songs where evil holds its sway,
Hopeless, a steadfast hope forever keeping,
I want to live ! You, thoughts of grief, away !

On poor, sad, fallow land, unused to tilling,
I'll sow blossoms, brilliant in hue,
sow blossoms where the frost lies, chilling,
*I'll pour bitter tears on them as dew.

And those burning tears shall melt, dissolving
All that mighty crust of ice away,
Maybe blossoms will come up, unfolding
Singing springtime for me, too, some day.

Up the flinty, steep and craggy mountain
A weighty ponderous boulder I shall raise,
And bearing this dread burden, a resounding
Song I'll sing, a song of joyous praise.

In the long dark ever-viewless night time
Not one instant shall I close my eyes,
I'll seek ever for the star to guide me,
She that reigns bright mistress of dark skies.

Yes, I'll smile, indeed, through tears and weeping,
Sing my songs where evil holds its sway,
Hopeless, a steadfast hope forever keeping,
I shall live !
You thoughts of grief-away !
