Meditation

"And that's why i have to go back
to so many places
there to find myself
and constantly examine myself
with no witness but the moon
and then whistle with joy,
ambling over rocks and clods of earth,
with no task but to live,
with no family but the road."


-Pablo Neruda

Not Enough To Fold - A. Joy

Forgotten like air
without movement

The simple dream
of people talking

Animate with hunger
for the unexpected

While the woman
I used to be
sleeps

There is - K. Lumpkin



There is
a flash
of pain

when I awake
and you’re
not here again…

out the window
the Lake laughs
at me

with the sparkle
of a whore
and her secret

I start the day
as if you were
here anyway…

Carlos Pintado - CUARTETAS DE OTOÑO


Me han concedido el fuego del pecado.
Sólo el fuego; el amor jamás ha sido
En mí sino una sombra. Yo he soñado,
-en las eternas noches del olvido-,

Que alguien me ama y me sueña. No he podido
Corresponder. Soy triste como el hado
Que invierte los destinos del amado.
Soy el amado; no quien ama. He sido

El traidor y el amigo. He complacido
A oscuros dioses el manjar sagrado.
Alguien en la penumbra  me ha buscado.
Alguien en la penumbra me ha vencido.

Through Thick And Thin

I could skip a heartbeat, and I would survive,
I could be in a car crash, and still be alive.
The clouds could fall out of the sky,
The oceans could disappear, and all turn dry.

These things in life are all bad I know,
but there's far worse things,
just thought you should know.

Life would not be the same without someone like you,
You're there when I need you to help me through.
Through the good times and through the bad,
Be them happy, or be them sad.

I don't have to be with you, to know you're there,
We don't have to see each other, to know that we care.
We could be apart for years upon end,
and still remain the best of friends.

Life goes on, and people change,
And through it all, our friendship shall remain the same.
That's such as a life, and how things come to be.
Just thought you should know,
How much you mean to me.

Annie Hall
