For was not the arbitrary distinction between illusion and reality the ultimate illusion itself?

Do not assume that order and stability are always good, in a society or in a universe. The old, the ossified, must always give way to new life and the birth of new things.

A Winged Bird

This is amazing.

House of Heart

I am who I have always been
a shiver of soft reeds beside the river
or the cascade of  a waterfall.
Gypsy crows rise  to a soft dawn
gathering their kind they circle
back for me.

I can scarcely bear the

splendor of the world,

its wonder humbles

the wisp  that is me.

Minutiae of eyes and ears

and speechless tongue

stunned by the promise

of a  red dawn.

Elegant trees  lift

their mighty limbs

host to creatures

large and small.

Their noble crowns filled

with the cornucopia of life.

I want to sail the sea tiny fleck that is me  bearer ofno possession fragment of the universe

art by Amy Judd (represented by Hicks Gallery)

Translation by Bernd Hutschenreuther

Ein geflügelter Vogel sein

Ich vermag kaum, den Glanz
der Welt zu enthüllen,
ihre Wunder schmälern
noch meine Winzigkeit.
Details von Augen und Ohren
und Zunge…

Nothing, however, is more dubious than the way in which these two words 'pessimist' and 'optimist' are used; for the optimist appears to be he who cannot bear the world as it is, and is forced by his nature to picture it as it ought to be, and the pessimist one who cannot only bear the world as it is, but loves it well enough to draw it faithfully.

From Holly…it’s so wonderful.

House of Heart

It was cold as death in our flat above the bar, the streets a hunting ground for wolves.

In dreams we could swim among the white caps, chase each other passed the sea oats to the dunes.

You with your gun on the night stand never seeing the palms fronds swaying in the wind.

We have vanished in lines on paper. Take my hand I will lift you up.

.

Dark skies rain down
over fading flowers
resurrecting them
day after day

submerged petals
seeped in sorrow
vain keepsakes

broken winged sparrows
taken by the wind
never to sing again

wunjo

watercolor 4/2021

Wunjo is the rune stone symbol for joy, peace.

And into the forest I go,

 to lose my mind

 and find my soul.

I Wonder

This is wonderful.

Peerless Cynic

 

In light of the absurd depths to which our species willingly descend to obscure reason, defile the earth to achieve power for its own sake, subjugating all living impediments opposing this myopic pursuit, building impenetrable institutions designed to exalt and protect the smallest minds among us behind their gated walls and nonsensical litigious fictions serving only the material world on the hamster wheel of our endless human parade…

I wonder, perhaps in retrospect it would have been wiser to be satisfied with the discovery of fire, and called it a day.
