Cries lament
across we see 
sing a song
of agony

“We sinned for no reason but an incomprehensible lack of love, and He saved us for no reason but an incomprehensible excess of love.” 
(Peter Kreeft, "Jesus-Shock")



... and then they didn't understand why. That woman 
cleaning the feet of the Master with her tears,
wiping them with her hair,
and now
they can't understand either, 
You bowing down to wash their feet.
who's the greatest of all...?
The lowliest servant is the greatest 
in the kingdom of God
love is the greatest commandment.

✍Quotes of the day

So long...

So long,
silent valley,
velvet mountains,
minty springs,
where among your tender care
I could fulfill all my dreams,
where God speaks in bird songs,
in soft moss,
in hollow trees. 

So long,
hidden paths, 
unreachable peaks.
I won't forget your allure,
the magic might you conceal.
Part of me in my departing
will remain 
in evergreen.

Ready's the journey
down all these years.
I am leaving
in white stork way,
old bells calling from the south.
Time is urging far and near
love still keen,
season's here.
I must leave.

✍Quotes of the day
- “The only journey is the one within.”

- “Sometimes, reaching out and taking someone's hand is the beginning of a journey.
   At other times, it is allowing another to take yours.”

(Vera Nazarian, The Perpetual Calendar of Inspiration)
“It is good to have an end to journey toward; but it is the journey that matters, in the end.”
(Ernest Hemingway)


The air's full of words

The air's full of words
nobody can read but the wind,
burnt and gone in grey smoke
while cinders blow and embers sing
a mourning song to me.

Memories reduced to ashes,
smell of old paper and ink,
forgotten letters, virgin books,
childhood notes, a written past
devoured by the flames.

The air's full of words
nobody can read but the wind
and my heart sizzles, crackles
with them. Years yearn aglow
in a singeing nostalgia.

✍Quote of the day
"Time is the fire in which we burn."
(Gene Roddenberry)


Write in White

White, white, white,
nothing seen where it were.
White, white, white,
what should I write
if my mind is also in white
and gone the flair?
This immaculate mantle,
this monotonous clean tangle,
has eaten up the atmosphere.
White, white, white,
pale as death,
pure as dove,
plain as day,
but, alas! the black moo of a cow 
changes the view
and... wow! wow! wow!
the milky way's done.
The udder's frozen.
The bucket's empty.
The baby's crying.
The virginal blur disappears
and... shit!,
all words in my brain
are gone with the snow.
✍Quote of the day
White is associated with purity because the entire spectrum is functioning in unity. White is a healing color. White is appropriate for weddings because the unity of male and female symbolizes the unity of allness.”
(Tae Yun Kim, "The First Element: Secrets to Maximizing Your Energy")
