distant history

youth

and the rebellion

of Persepolis

 

--twin stars like twinkling eyes

against the blanketed night

guide the wandering dogs of heaven,

while eden sleeps fallow at history's feet.

THe sense of wonder coupled with the explicit brevity makes this a captivating poem; you somehow manage to blend the intangible with beauty.

Hey David,

Some days ago, I was crossing, feeling a bit small--to be without comradeship in such a crowded city can be difficult. That day, there was a slow gypsy guitar playing and I felt in that moment like he must have been there for me--it was so poignant and beautiful that the emotion overwhelmed me.

I recorded some of his playing and have considered putting it up for others, but I have to find a video accompaniment because my camera caught only my shoe ;

Thanks for commenting--this experience has its disorienting moments, but I haven't looked over the edge from here, as of yet.

I'll keep you posted...

Postcards from the edge eh Rachel.

How does the Bosphorus look in the early sunlight?

David.
